the work

Most of the drawings in my sketchbooks are done freestyle, either on the subway or on the couch, listening to music or the TV. Sometimes I let my surroundings influence what goes on the page. Other times — particularly with the repeating patterns — I create a set of rules for myself to follow as I draw. This activity is a way to keep my mind and hands active, to test out new drawing materials, and sometimes to jump-start ideas for “real” projects.

I post new sketchbook pages semi-regularly on InstagramTumblr, and Facebook.
