***Temporary Sketchbook Detour***
I began a solo motorcycle trip from Los Angeles on Friday, June 22, 2012, heading north, as far as I'm having fun. I'll be updating my sketchbook with posts from the road, and not necessarily artwork. I'm too beat by the time I'm in camp or in a cheap motel.
I'll continue with the sketches when I get back in a few weeks.
Yeah right! It's been months! I'll get back to it as I finish up some classes and have more time again. Maybe in another month, like in February, 2013.

I just kinda let myself doodle and fill in areas of the paper until I've got a full picture. This one started at the top and finished with the house and smoke towards the bottom. I wasn't trying to create anything, but just filling in the blank spaces. After not looking at the drawing for a day, when I look back at it, I'm seeing a very disturbing story. Yuck.

This doodle that I almost finished during a (super-extended feeling) meeting reminds me of my time working in printmaking. I used to really enjoy it, but it requires more equipment and space than I've got. I guess I could rent space in a local studio. Hmm... Maybe I'll look into it. Do some linocuts and maybe intaglio. Hmm...
At least I could show you what I'm mumbling about next time I don't have any current work and put up some of my old prints.

This drawing is taken from a photo from Colette Coleman's book, Planet Earth's Greatest Motorcycle Adventure Tours. It's got some nice photos and is available from Amazon for $12.00.
Anyhow, I'm looking at my drawing an cringing. That back wheel is so hopped up. That's just the most glaring issue I've got with this sketch. Oh well... I guess this is what this sketchbook-blog is all about. I'm forcing myself to put out work on a weekly basis and will post work that I love along with work that I feel is just a rough start.
