Sketchbook Detour

***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.

Mayan Dragon Ink Doodle

I need to do more research on ancient art styles.  I used to visit the Museum of Man in Balboa Park, down in San Diego.  They had examples of Egyptian, Mayan, Aztec, and Inca statues and carvings that I would do quick sketches of.  This drawing reminds me of some of the Mayan styles.

Maze-Like Ink Doodle

Where's Waldo?  There is no Waldo.  It's just I think this one might be a little boring without a reason to search through the image for something.

Twenty Dollar Doodle


I rediscovered this drawing today.  It's from a meeting and I'm guessing that I was doodling and saw Andrew Jackson, so I grabbed a dollar bill and started sketching...

Mayan Dimensional Ink Drawing


I love this stuff.  I added the green in Photoshop to make the dimensional aspects stand out.  It reminds me of Mayan style characters.  Maybe I've got some 2012, Mayan calendar channeling going on.

Space and Face Doodle


It's another one from a meeting.  They usually just compose themselves.   I'm not sure what was intended for the second chain.  Maybe the meeting was abruptly over.
