Your Interpretation?

I made this sketch in the dregs of sleep deprivation when my baby was only a few days old. This is what came out of my head. I have NO idea where it came from or what it is or what is happening. I'd love to hear your interpretations of what is going on between these two.


I failed to post anything before the project went in the mail. But I will post here. Ex post facto posts, so to speak. Hope you enjoy. You may detect a theme.

Each Other

This is a sketch from life of a couple at my church that often fall asleep in each other's arms, in the middle of the sacrament meeting. They're both rather interesting individuals. Whenever I see either of them, I often find myself thinking how glad I am they found each other.

PS Sorry for the absence. The recent snow storm knocked our power out. We got it back today. I love you, electricity!

Paying the Piper

Aaron gets drawn a lot for a lot of reasons. He's good at getting stuck working for hours at a time which makes him stay in the same spot for a while. I like looking at him. And he lives with me. Here's a sketch I made of him working long into the night. If you are wondering, he's wearing a hood because our house is cold and because he thinks his hair is too long and needs to be cut.

A detail.

Pen Switch

I was doodling in Sunday School and here's what I ended up with. I was excited because a guy in front of me fell asleep - perfect for drawing. But Reuben stole my pen and by the time I found another, the blue one, the guy woke up and left.

My Favorite Page

I think this is my favorite page of the sketchbook. I'm posting it in honor of Miriam's half year birthday which is today.

From No Where

This person doesn't exist. I was drawing from out of my head and this is what I got. Boy? Girl? I couldn't decide. But they have freckles. Freckles like stars in the sky.

To The Limit

So I spent yesterday finishing up. I lost count but I think I filled in something like 15 pages - while hanging out with my two compadres. This was one of my favorite pages. It was the first page of the sketchbook. More to come.

Well, it's finished. I might be embarrassed to claim some of the pages (particularly the ones where I practiced drawing cats - my nemesis) Here are some samples:
