I tend to draw quick sketches and even more elaborate ones in a sketchbook. I've had several different types of books over time, and now I enjoy mostly ones that can handle wet media as well as dry.
|A couple of pages from a journal from 2018. I most often combine thoughts with images.|
Journaling has been a constant daily (or close to everyday) practice so several years. I don't think much about the content, as it depends what I'm doing that day or what's before me.
|This page from my journal is fancier than most. I was playing around with illustrating cats in New York City landmarks. The setting for this one is Grand Central Terminal in the holiday season.|
|An sketch from maybe 2007 or 2008 of a angel relief on a house in Brooklyn Heights. I'm pretty sure the poet W. H. Auden lived there, because this accompanied a post about Auden in Walking Off the Big Apple.|
|In 2016 I had an idea to make a drawing for Christmas Day.|
|When I started drawing in the city in 2007, I often made sketches of people sitting on park benches in Washington Square Park.|
