What really matters

As usual, a drawing never, ever turns out like I think it's going to. OK I can see it's not a great drawing, but what I love (and what I love to discover) is that the interesting bits occur away from what I thought was the focal point. In this case that was a textured, ink pen drawing of a cow, but what's worth looking at are the edges, the organic rope wrapping itself in and out of the legs, the grassy disk where his head once was, and the upside-down man hanging from the sky.

I've got a cold

After a few back episodes of "Saving Grace" (in bed), I found a sketchbook and a crayon.
Wondering where I picked up these feckin'  little germs and trying not to pass any on to my friends, husband and co-workers.
I hate to think of them merrily replicating themselves in the back of my throat, on their way to my everywhere else...
