4/30/20 – 5/23/20. 8 1/2” x 11” sketchbook. 11” x 17” opened up. Mindless doodling.
The top two I did sitting in today sitting in downtown Stroudsburg, PA. I found a picnic table by the courthouse and had an iced coffee with me. The other one is of a tree near the falls on Ann St.
8 1/2” x 11”. October 15, 2019 – May 11, 2020. Sharpie and Crayola pencils. When I do a drawing on a page in my sketchbook the page is not done because I know I will come back to the page sooner or later to either add to the drawing, color it, doodle around it, and sometimes on a rare occasion put a big sticker over the drawing if I do not like it and then put art on the sticker. This page is 8 months of doodling. No planning. Sometimes I just like to let my pen be the boss and give my brain a rest. In art I find the freedom that life seldom offers. In my sketchbook I am Boss. The Big Boss.
Every day seems like a total waste unless I don’t complete at least 1 thing in my sketchbook that I am happy with.
Fake empathy in TV commercials. I don’t buy any of it…
