Started out black ink only, hated where it was going... too tired and hadn't eaten anything... whine... Had the shakes and couldn't concentrate... made some food, then I ate. Afterwards I broke out the brush tip markers and started working them in... blah, blah, blog.

Forced myself to draw tonight. I was feeling like a rut was coming on. Not real happy with this but ink on paper was the goal. My daughter comes home soon from Seattle, I've missed her. The rest of the family will be back on the 12th. I better get crackin' makin' sculptures and cups...

Alice Cooper's newest studio album comes out tomorrow. It is a concept album called "Along Came a Spider". Why do I post this? I've been listening to him and his bands since I was a little punk hiding in the hills of northern Pennsylvania. I'm sure his music and persona has influenced me and my art throughout the years. I think it's cool that at 60 he's still rockin'. Even though his image is a little cleaner he still is a bit twisted. Rock on Alice...
Walking through the woods, I happened on this doe I've seen for the past couple of years. She had a little one with her that managed to stay out of camera shot.
I haven't drawn in a couple days... I did get a call about the Lincoln show I'm in. Guess they need a couple more pieces. I agreed to do more. I'll post a drawing or clay stuff as it materializes. If I see the moose and get the camera on it/them I'll post those too.

Took a lot of pictures at the Lincoln Memorial, and plenty of other memorials while in DC. I spaced and didn't go to the Jefferson Memorial. Thought I'd practice working with Lincoln... I have to start making a sculpture about him soon. Tossing around a few ideas... time will tell.

Found this while looking through an older sketchbook. I was in New Zealand at the time and the image on the bottom was all over the media. Not a great sketch, but the events struck a nerve... For some reason back then, I didn't use both sides of the page in my moleskine sketchbooks. One other note, I'll be away for a week. While I'm away, I'll check-in and visit other folks from the hotel computer. One of these days I'll purchase a laptop...

Saw a guy laying in a parking lot a couple days ago. Everyone just passed by, either ignoring him or looking at him in disgust. I stopped to see if he was still alive. Turns out he was. He was sleeping off a drunk. I wish him well.
