part two.





















today's warm up.

this is a title page from The People of Paper.
it is one of my favorite books and it has been
pretty fitting given everything going on lately.
(credit where it's due; I just reproduced it.)

I'm finishing up the final odds and ends of
Small Hotel | volume two as fast as I can.
and with that it felt like a good point to put
a period, close a chapter and move on.

I opened up a Tumblr version of this blog.
if you're on there, you can like and re blog
and all that great tumblr shit, if you prefer.
otherwise, it's just a mirror of this blog.

so; part two...

field drawings...




















from a life of impossible odds.


a warm up drawing. I do these to feel out
how confident my line does or does not feel
on any particular day. usually from found
photos I've collected from various places.
they have no intent beyond the technical.

this turned out rather well despite feeling
pretty shaky this dark, wet, cold morning.

the day job was a bear this last week and
once again my ambition is outpaced by time.
however, Small Hotel inches closer each day.
should be all wrapped by the end of the week.
then it's off to the printer; so on and so forth,
eventually finding it's way to your hands.

I hope.
