The Whippet Essence

These are some sketches of Reuben and Olivia, some Whippet dogs that I have gotten to know over the past few months. Whippets are extremely fidgety dogs and they have a lot of energy. This makes sketching them while awake both challenging and rewarding. I wish I had more opportunities like this to sketch living, […]

The Hall of Justice

I made this quirky drawing while in the Jury Pool waiting room (it was too big to scan at once so I had to stitch two scans together). I had only been called in for Jury Duty one other time, and not in this particular courthouse. By the time I drove into the city, found […]

Provenance: Book Review

Emotional Maintenance

Today I am feeling a bit thoughtful, so please forgive me for launching into a discussion on mind-body interactions. (But hey, you might find something useful here though.) First, about the drawing.
