Work and Progress

9. Sketchbook: 2008 Was A Good Year.

I  invest a lot of myself in my sketchbooks and typically they reflect what i am doing or going through when they are made. I have lost two sketchbooks in my life time. I left one on the train on the way to Penn Station 2004 ( inspired by war in Iraq.)  and  another was lost at the Natural History Museum in L.A 2008 (I also lost a pencil pouch with tools I had for about 10 yrs, that day). Unfortunately I don’t have a complete record of 2008. This sketchbook was made end of 2008 and beginning of 2009.

Reminds me of Brooklyn

These drawings are done with a Micron felt tip pen and a dipping nib. No testing no erasing.
