what follows is every page of the 3×5 moleskine i carried in my bag for quick sketches.
most of them were done while i was on trains, busses, at parks, on a boat, etc., except for a couple i did from the balcony of my apartment.
i added watercolor to some when i got home.
it’s fun to notice things and try and capture them on the page. it’s that ACT of drawing that i enjoy so much.
can you find the rainboot on the roof of the building above?
the page above captures the feeling i have when i’m tromping around. it is the opposite of the feeling i have when i’m trapped in a museum. when i’m wandering i have this strong visceral reaction to my surroundings. my senses are heightened. i feel HIGH.
even if you think you can’t draw to save your life i wonder how it would feel to take a little sketchbook with you on your next trip. to try in some rudimentary way to draw what you see.
rough, unfinished, no purpose other than to immerse myself deeply in the moment.
small moments of being alive in the world.
