Today, the wonderful and talented Susan Kaye Quinn interviewed me over at her blog! She's doing a week of "Art Appreciation" and I can't tell you how humbled and happy I am that she appreciates my art. Head on over! Take a look! Enjoy all the other artists and enter her contest! DO IT.
It's here! C'mere!
So in the last few weeks of moving and rearranging my life, a lot of old notebooks and sketchbooks have popped up, giving me a chance to look over the last ten years of my existence in a sketched out form. As with any old journals, there's moments of lucidity, embarrassment, surprise and shock. The crazy thing is that even a drawing of a weird yellow dolphin elicits some sort of memory: where I was, what I was thinking or pining after, etc. Anything from our pasts can do that, really, but I guess I didn't realize how my late teens were so full of snake ladies and men in skirts.
So despite how embarrassing this may be, I thought I'd share a page or two from these old sketchbooks. Prehistoric drawgs! This is, frankly, what the inside of my brain looked like in 2001. Oh, but not now! No...I'm so much more organized and mature...now. Er. Ahem.
Enjoy. Or not. Do what you will.
That's that. Sketchbooks are my memories, though they be strange and scaly ones. What's brings out the nostalgia in you?
