Practice practice practice

I made four of these this week. I think of them like practicing scales or jogging the same route every Tuesday. When I don't know what to draw, it's OK to just draw. There's always something new to been found.
I love that story about the monk who hides treasure in the subconscious for a later lifetime when it will be of use to him/her/humankind/me.

Sidling in

Hal's told everyone that I've been back in the studio today, so I guess I'll post the drawings I'm working on. I took a batch of photos of this object created for a road-kill sort of video I was thinking about... I like drawing over photographs, making new worlds out of old worlds.
