a visit to vegas

room at the mirage

We went to Las Vegas for the weekend, to celebrate my wife’s birthday. We’ve been several times before (we got married there), and this time we stayed at the Mirage, as we were going to see the Beatles ‘Love’ show by Cirque du Soleil (which was incredible). The rooms at the Mirage are very nice. I had to sketch ours.

Below, another airplane sketch. Our flight was full, on a pretty small and veyr cramped US Airways flight. The flight was so full that after everyone was on the plane, the attendants asked that two people volunteer to get off because the plane was too heavy. That didn’t make me nervous at all.

I managed to get in quite a bit of sketching, which I’ll post shortly…

      Outshone was actually my second choice of word; I was going to say ‘outswanked’ but that looked a bit odd!
      They are shiny though. The Wynn and Encore bask the whole street before them in a wierd brown/orange light when the sun reflects off of them, it’s bizarre.
