Doodles part 1







Doodling. What does it mean? I’m not exactly sure myself. If I were to guess Its definition , at least what it means to me….I’d say it’s straight ahead drawing with few construction lines, after all I never know how it’s going to end up, I have no particular goal in mind when I doodle other than to enjoy myself. So, I decided to post a few doodles from my sketchbook. I started doodling pretty young (2 weeks old)
Just kidding.
My dad would doodle constantly while on the phone, and probably still does. At the end of his conversation I’d look at his latest creation, usually that of a name in capital letters, surrounded by a rectangle, underlined, with arrows darting every which way. I suppose if he ever doodled any women surrounded by arrows he would have hidden those from me, and that’s quite all right. Having seen those at a young age may have stopped me from pursuing a career in art.

Most of these are from the last couple of weeks. There is even one from 15 minutes ago but I won’t tell you which one it is. Unless you buy me 24 beers. by midnight.

Open Mic night at The Root Hill cafe




I have to say, I really enjoy living in this neighbourhood, Gowanus, Brooklyn.
After a weekend full of walking around the Gowanus Art studios it has reaffirmed my love for this area. My favorite place is still Canal Bar. It has always been a safe haven for me to get away from all the noise and B.S. that is inherit in any big city, especially Manhattan. That said, Brooklyn isn’t by any means perfect. It smells, it’s not THAT safe ( I witnessed a mugging on my street early this year- apparently the dude had a gun with a silencer, I inadvertently scared him away by walking towards what I thought was a domestic dispute.) But that aside, and amidst the random gunshots, it’s all good.
Recently this new coffee shop opened up on the corner of 4th ave and Carroll Street.
It’s named The Root Hill CafĂ© and I’m sure that I’ll be hanging out there a lot more since my new schedule has me freed up to work on some personal ideas in between Tek Jansen.
They Have an open Mic night every Monday which I encourage people to check out. Hopefully I’ll have something to show in a few weeks, until then, I leave you with these sketches this past Monday….

The singer/guitarist played a song by bright eyes, it was very nice.
The comedian seemed like a funny person, but didn’t make me laugh.
The host is a riot, he has a voice like Tom Waits.
Mick was there performing with his band, he’s warming up his Didgeridoo in this sketch.
