Still Life and Weird Cat

Still Life and Weird Cat

If I weren't writing this right now I might be drawing the keyboard or shelf in front of me. These things aren't very interesting to look at, but to be able to accurately capture their angles and proportions correctly is a challenge better than staring off into space or into the depths of social media while I wait for Jeff to get out of the shower so we can go and get Mexican food. mmmm Mexican food....

Sketchbook Look Introduction and Seattle

When I make a sketch my brain goes into recording mode where I'm taking in everything I see to make calculations and decisions to get my subject translated down onto the paper but by default everything going on around me gets lodged into my brain too. Because of this, when I look back at a drawing I can instantly tell you who was around, what I might have been eating, if I was listening to a podcast or music or nothing.
