In The Margins

One of the best illustration teachers I had in school was a guy by the name of Charles Rowe. He would stress the importance of drawing, sketching, and doodling everyday, everywhere and anytime. If you want to get better you have to put in the time.

To drive home his point he came in one day with about three large tabloid sized envelopes that were obviously filled to capacity and dumped their contents on to a table. They were filled with scraps of paper, napkins with coffee stains, envelopes, pieces of cardboard, receipts, you name it. Everything had drawings on them. These were his thoughts, his observations, his ideas. And the kicker was the three envelopes were only a week's worth of doodles. We got the point.

I strive to sketch everyday for myself outside of work and in between jobs. The following sketches are just a few of those little doodles found in the margins of sketchbooks, notebooks and scraps of paper.

Thanks for visiting.
