This was another pen & ink sketch from my sketchbook in the spring of ’04 on a trip to Florida. I’m going to try and force myself to make more use of this sketchbook in the future. I forget how theraputic drawing ‘for myself’ can be as a way of casting off the lines and straightjackets of my daily grind. I tend to flop down on the couch after a hard day of illustrating, and the last thing I want to do is pick up a pen and draw something.
UPDATE: In January of 2018, I made a New Years’ resolution to begin a regular regimen of ‘doodling’ in my sketchbook, and I managed to keep it up for several months before getting busy again and putting it aside (I really rely on routine, can you tell?), and hopefully I’ll post some new ‘doodles’ in the near future, when time permits.
