From My Sketch Book – Rhymes and Doodles

This face tells a tale,

Of a curious male.

One side is sad,

The other side’s glad!

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

I sound long in the tooth,

When I kvetch about the youth.

So, instead I focus my eye

On the ones in a tie.

From My Sketchbook – Rhymes and Doodles

Her expression was sour,

For an early hour.

But her hat caught my eye,

So I sketched on the sly.

From My Sketchbook

There was nothing slapdash

About his mustache.

Upon reflection,

He was styled to perfection.

From My Sketchbook – The Winter Blahs

Of course, I can never be sure what any of my subjects are thinking.  For sure, my own “winter blahs” have probably bled into this past week’s slightly glum sketches.  But sunny days (and a much need break) are just around the corner for me.  Look for some new cartoons to be emerging soon!

From My Sketchbook – My Peeps

Yes, these days my “peeps” – or the people I’m drawn to sketch – are the ones with unusual expressions and, often, quirky outfits.  Don’t get me wrong; I’ll still admire the rare specimen with the perfectly proportioned face, luminescent skin, elegant figure, and beautiful clothes.  But artistically speaking, it’s the humanity in the rest of us mortals that catches my attention and inspires me.  (Not to mention that there is charm and often humor in that which is unique.)

From My Sketchbook – Picking Up the Pieces

For those of you fans who also happen to be my musician friends, I know you understand the stress of preparing for an audition.  And I know you’ll sympathize and be able to relate as I sit here scratching my head tonight after not having advanced in the audition I took today.  It’s one thing to not advance after feeling like you didn’t play well…entirely another when you know you pretty much did your best (hence the head scratching!)  Fortunately, I do have a very good network of supportive friends and family, and my imaginary friends (see below) are calling as well.

And, as I begin to pick up the pieces and get back to my creative endeavors, I’m inspired to share this piece of wisdom…

“There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.”
