Sketchcrawl 11

Technology is rising for the revolution and we are all DOOMED! My computer, in fact ALL computers, decided to perform a mini revolt on me this weekend. Nothing worked, things crashed, files failed, things wouldn't burn, etc. They're planning something BIG and I was just the test subject. It's the beginning of the robot uprising and I hope you're all prepared. Better learn how to use that abacas again, 'cause your calculator wants to eat your brain or, turn you into a giant battery/power source Matrix style. I won't even tell you what your computer wants to do to you.

That said, it was nice to escape the evil clutches of technology and participate in SKETCHCRAWL 11 in Sausalito. A grand time was had by all, and there was a lot of us. I was a little more prolific this time, but still, not nearly as much as I had hoped.

Making time for Sketching

Work has been a battle lately. Differing opinions mixed with more writing than drawing has left my brain a little fried. I haven't had much drive to get back to the drawing board to do some work for myself. Too bad really since I find that working on your own stuff softens the blow of having to deal with work based decisions that you don't necessarily agree with.

Or, I'm just a big whiner...

'Nuff about that. So, I finally just sat down and had a little alone time for me and my sketchbook. Some nice wine, perhaps even a little inappropriate touching. Have I said too much?

See? THIS is the crap I write when the brain is working at half capacity.


Back to the drawing. I finally took some time to draw for myself.

The first one started out as a quick study for a panel in a short comic story that I'm planning. It turned into something different (mainly the tree) than what I intended, but I think this shows me that what I want to do will work. As an added bonus, apparently this paper is a tad transparent so, if you put your face REALLY close to the screen, and squint, you might see some ghost images of monkey drawings from the next page.

This other tiny sketch was a doodle for a much bigger idea. A story I would VERY much like to tell some day... as soon as I figure out how to tell it. Until then, a little teaser...
