In Context: Quotations

Reading is a way to have conversations when you’re alone in a room. You and the author, trying to decipher what the characters are …

Tricks of Memory and Make-up

Sometimes we don’t remember things, and sometimes we remember them correctly. Drawing always makes me think about things like this. I was not misremembering, there were actually two actors who played “Dale the Whale” in the TV show “Monk.”

Bringing Some Files Up-to-date

I’ve been attempting to reorganize past sketching files and blog post ideas. Images pop up in the search and I think I might have already posted about them. Instead I discover that I’ve only posted a cropped portion on Instagram. I haven’t posted the full image or written about it. And it was in my […]

In Context: A Collage Doodle

I got to doodling one night in a journal I’d bound with 90 lb. Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolor paper. And then I started to doodle with paper scraps. Pick up something you have at hand, just to break the rhythm, or simply because you want to play.

Victorian Top Hats and the Evolution of the T-shirt

Late at night  I sometimes curl up with my journal and sketch Victorian Fashion, specifically top hats. Since I started the week with a doodle of a man in a top hat, I thought I would continue along with more Victorian top hats. Watching dramatizations of the books of Charles Dickens will provide you with […]

Another Sort of Selfie—The Doodle Selfie

  This is a late-night doodle, which is also a selfie… It’s on Fabriano Hot Press watercolor paper that I made into a hand-bound book. After midnight my spelling is questionable, though at least I still usually question it.

More Hair—a Selfie

  I’m wrapping up the current hair series with a selfie. My braided hair of course. I don’t do selfies often. I have to stand in the bathroom and juggle pens and palettes.  I was frustrated late one night because my foot was in a cast and my vision was particularly frustrating. But there is […]

Television: Frank of Ireland

  There are some televisions shows I can’t really tell you about—you just need to experience them. To tell you specifics of “Frank of Ireland” (available on Amazon Prime) would be to spoil all the little and large discoveries you’ll make along the crazy, hilarious way. Frank is a 32-year-old would-be musician who lives at […]

Television Mysteries

Things have come up and interrupted my writing of blog posts. I’ve got little folders with the dates and topics and the drawings all set up and yet I keep getting “called” away. I decided rather than try to make the reasoned, composed, and collected blog post about all the mysteries on television I’ve been […]

Another Wizard

I started these wizard portraits working very small (6 x 8 inch page size), but this one, which is about 9 x 11, inches just sort of happened. It seems I can’t get wizards out of my mind. Now it seems many of them might end up being very large as well. We’ll see.  This […]
