A page from a sketchbook...I usually have at least two lying around, developing in an off rhythm sequence. Sometimes there will be a flurry of drawings done from life very quickly, and then there will be something more studied and designy like this. The smudges on the right are from the page that comes after, a drawing of the wire catspider :

I've been reading Julie Doucet's 365 Days, a visual & written journal of one year in the artist's life. I find it soothing and truthful to read about the daily details of another artist. Even without a lot of emotional revelations you begin to sink into her life little by little to a kind of visceral understanding.
