napkin doodle

Why does it happen so often when Z and I are drawing next to each other at a bar, someone will always ask if we're having a drawing contest. If we were having a drawing contest, then obviously we'd be wearing our wristbands and racquetball goggles, a requisite to each and every drawing contest.
I just assumed everyone was aware of that.
If we're wearing our casual wear, then we're just having fun-
and trying to do better than our last drawing.

Sketches from Dorval

These two sketches are from my most recent trip to Montreal. As I was adding some texture to the woman's hair, I heard a familiar voice say "there he is". It was my brother and his lady friend who by chance walked past me. I knew they were to arrive a while after I did, but we had not exchanged flight information. Although the arrivals area at Dorval airport is quite small, I still like how the trip started off, by chance. The synchronicities did not stop there however. Perhaps I'll get into them another time.

Straight ahead animation done a few weeks ago at a quaint little bar called Great Lakes.

poetry month

Green or red,
Red or green,
Is the life we’ve chosen,
Is that so obscene?

life drawing

life drawing at the B.A.G. WITH POST ITS! and Modelo beer. What would life drawing be without a can of beer, eh? maybe it's my Canadian side shining through.

post its again

Zartosht also drew the guy on the right. One fun aspect of drawing with a group is that you get to see how other people see the world, and moreover, how they chose to interpret it. His drawing of this guy exaggerated his heroin, haggardly, zombie-like presence even more. When the zombie dude saw Zee’s drawing he exclaimed “…..but it’s only a caricature, right?” As his scrawny arms made a lunge for his chair awaiting him at the table next to us, I caught Zartosht smiling.

more post its

The sketch on the right makes me think that sometimes less is more, but it also makes me think that I could have spent a few more seconds adding some more lines. I wonder, if napkins had feelings would they be jealous that I'm drawing on post it notes? Oh, the things that keep me up at night.....
