although storyboarding is my job, drawing is my life. anybody who knows me, knows that sooner or later i'll be drawing you, probably at lunch. i used to carry a sketchbook ALWAYS, the habit started under john lincoln's life drawing tutelage @ CSULB. we all carried them then & we were always drawing. it becomes a part of how you interact with your life's events; to record them & in some way honor them, the drawing as part of the event remembered, even if it is just lunch. in time i've streamlined the process - i carry 5 x 7 index cards & a stub of a black prismacolor pencil; the drawing being done in the time between being seated and getting our food. being index cards they're easier to dole out & insist others draw too! shown are some restaurant sketches of my family; and a couple by them as well.

Draw, draw, draw... there's a Gertrude Stein line in her book about Picasso, wherein she says "...he was an artist who constantly needed to be emptying..." . I can't claim such a profound wellspring as my source, but a guy can pretend,est-ce que je peux ?
