The coolest thing about drawing is that you can save them in actual (not virtual) paper books, commonly known to us in the business as sketch pads, and open them when ya want to and look at them. That’s sorta, in a metaphorical way, what I’m doing here. I often like to draw small little sketches, and because I’m a cheap bastard, put them on one page to save money. It’s also my way of whipping-out little ‘mini paintings’ I can crank out in 15 minutes. The reason I keep any drawing to 15 minutes ( 17 minutes if I’m on a roll ) is I’m often times afflicted with short term memory loss due to the medication I take nightly. Which, by the way, is now totally legal and for sale in California. Only bummer is: most cities and local municipalities have banned sales so ya have to drive down to havens of trash like the San Fernando Valley
to score to purchase some. It is “The Valley” which also happily, supplies us with all our pornographic needs. Disgusting! Thank God we have a moral leader in this country (which gets greater on a daily basis) who would never indulge in such filth.
One day I accidentally screwed-up and took a double dose of medicine (forgetfulness is one of its side affects – which is not necessarily a bad thing as more and more there’s more things that I’d like to forget than keep in the front of my mind). Any way….I got this big flash! What if I somehow tied together artistically all these separate drawings done on separate days to make one whole cohesive skater-brained composition? Pretty wild.
So with the help of some cheap high school level art tricks I’ve been able to take ball-point pen and colored pencils to new heights.
