Doodling Is Good For the Soul.
In this section, I present some sketches and ramblings from my sketchbooks/notebooks, 200+ of which I have filled with writings, observations on films, music and travel, overheard bits of conversation, quotes from books, thoughts, nightmares, longings and doodlings with pencil and pen. Everyone should carry a notebook in their pocket, and something to write with other than a dirty fingernail.
Quote to Remember: “The sins I’ve committed are all against my integrity as an artist.” (Architect) Philip Johnson.
A character sketch for my "bio" graphic novel. Art pen & markers.
A double page from my countless notebooks, drawn while eating lunch at Portland's best downtown French restaurant: Little Bird. Words incorporated into the image on the left are from the movie Pillow Book, and from my book, Doll Head Eater.
Taken from one of my hundreds of notebooks. The panel on the left contains one of many pages of notes from a long, crazy trip to California in 1991: this snippet offers observations on the craziest person I ever saw drive a car well. The right hand page is my reaction to this loose canon. It made sense to me.
Drawn with a blue fountain pen (it's all that was available) and a pencil, while feeling philosophical. Well, it was a Sunday and I was waiting for someone to get off work.
