In Context: Whacky Sketching Mistakes

Sometimes the hand zigs when you want it to zag and something odd, like a dictator’s stare, seems like an intentional message from our subconscious.

In Context: Page from My Green-lined Journal

After my first eye surgery I struggled to get used to the corrections in one eye and living with the fact that the right eye cataract couldn’t be corrected until the next surgery; so what output am I capable of? I also wasn’t able to exercise. So I watched a lot of television. I returned […]

Introspection and Gratitude

Today’s image has nothing to do with Memorial Day. I simply like to post a sketch with each blog post. I have written a post on Memorial Day pretty much every year I’ve had the blog. I think I’ve covered what I need to say about Memorial Day. I have a lot to be grateful […]

The Truth Matters; Freedom of the Press Matters; Vote Today

Today, nothing matters more than getting out to vote.  By November 3, 2018 there were literally 6,420 reasons to vote against President Trump. That was the current tally of misstatements Trump had made in the 649 days of his presidency. Misstatements which have been misogenistic, racist, and simply insulting to caring, compassionate, and responsible humans. […]

Other times I’ll let it run, treating the show more like an exercise in capturing an ever changing live subject. […]

We Work With What We Have

Left: In the smallest landscape Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook which is about 6 x 4.25 inches—a Pentel Pocket Brush Pen sketch from a photo in the Sktchy app, while waiting in the doctor’s patient room. No new cartridges, just the barest flow of ink…I had to keep trying to move around the face and get in a […]

Remembrance Day: Thoughts in 2014

Above: Video about Shell Shock which emerged during the First World War. If the video doesn't play go to this YouTube link. (And from there you can also see the links to the other three parts.) I spend Remembrance Day in quiet contemplation with the phone off. I think that my November 11, 2010 post […]
