Politics

The important politics of sketch books, I should specify. Wikipedia, "Politics is the process by which groups of people make decisions." And the first photo demonstrates why I can use the term group. My invaluable assistant, Ms Bird, has the pencil under control though not yet filed under a work bench.

I've never asked how others manage their sketch books. My impression is some folks can be organized with their sketches... and I think that's nice. I'm not. I have (I think) 6 working sketch books that go back years... what happens is. I'm thinking about something... so I start sketching but need another page. If I turn the page I won't be able to refer back to what I was doing... and if I tear out a page I'll lose it. So I open another sketch book. (I tend to open them to some random blank page.) I've thought about starting a file of loose sketches... but. How crazy can you get, really. This morning after flipping though a couple of sketch books looking for a few blank pages to stumble about in, I decided a new one needs to be added to the mix.

Here's an important bunch of sketches I made recently.... ;)

I can't believe Favre went to the Jets...As a Pats fan this is a terrible conflict for me.

Ready for the game tonight? I am so excited it finally is football season! Woo hoo! Go Pats!

I know! I saw that this morning. and i had a blog post ready to do on football... now gotta rewrite it! *couldn't he have waited just one more day?*

it should help the Zets. they seem to suffer from chronic quarterback problems. but they are doomed anyway. Bellichick doesn't like them.
