More Sketches








Well, the girls started school last Thursday, Joel starts tomorrow. Of course, Richard's been at work as the new principal of one of the local high schools, but tomorrow's his first day with all the students there. I'm the only one in the family who doesn't have something new and exciting going on, but that's okay because I'm looking forward to getting back out to the studio without feeling guilty that I'm not with my family.

I've got some new ideas--lots of them, in fact, so I'll be sharing the journey, but for now I'll just show you some more sketches. Most of these were done based on people from a 1928 high school yearbook!

What a cool idea to draw from an old yearbook - you'd certainly get period details that way.

Enjoy your new creative space...

I LOVE looking at all the people who are born from your pen and brain. Some of them look like people I know. You've drawn my aunt, for example. They are so real, have such personality. I love them.

What's the news on Dinah? Considering that vet was supposed to spay her and the opposite resulted, are they helping you out?
