Busy and Sketchbook

Wow it has been a little while since I have posted anything. I am not neglecting this blog, I have just been very busy with life and trying to build up an art inventory for some upcoming art events.

The sketchbook.
I truly enjoy sketchbooks. I like the smell of a new one, the various styles and papers in which they come. I like to explore other's sketchbooks because it gives me some insight to how the artist works and lets me see their mistakes and sometimes reveals how they think (and I love scribbly, sketchy, extra lined drawings). Sometimes I feel it is a borderline addiction, these sketchbooks. I have several lovely sketchbooks in my studio that have not been used and yet when I see one in a book or art store that I like, I am compelled to buy it and add it to my collection.
I am currently turning some old books into drawing/sketch books, either as a new interest or something to curb my sketchbook wants. Pictures of these altered books will be taken and posted sometime soon.
I thought I would share a couple of finished sketchbook drawings. These drawings were done little by little over the course of a couple weeks while I was waiting, at the Dr.'s office, at a restaurant, or in the car while my wife runs in the grocery store for a few items.
