Marci Coppel's travel drawings began during her first international trip when she visited many parts of Mexico with an artist friend. Marcia loved the feel of ink on paper and started to do rapid line drawings of people. The drawings have changed over the years but she still loves to draw in restaurants, cafes, and at jazz venues. They give her a feeling of joy. The drawings, indirectly, have indirectly influenced her painting series "Life Is Too Serious" and "Connect/Disconnect".
