just a drawin' fool...






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.

Wonderful! You could put a book together from quite a few of those index card sketches. You must have several hundred by now.

Great stuff Dave - it's great to see your boards, then the life drawing stuff, then stuff drawn on the spot super fast. Post more - Anthony is right, you must have a bunch -

Good to see keeping up the CSULB faith with the drawing! Hope all's been well!

Better late-r than earlier but not as relaxed....

That's cool. I remember many times doing that kind of thing in various places. It reminds me of my Hollywood days in night clubs like Club Lingerie and doing drawings on napkins. Especially one really memorable time when I spent hours working on this series of napkin masterpieces that were tossed into the trash one moment when I wasn't looking, or maybe even a little drunk...
Keep going! Reality must be documentd!
