Pocket Sketchbook

Last month, Stacie left me with the boys so she could spend the weekend with a longtime friend.  I assumed she would return with some small gifts for the boys, but she also surprised me with a pocket sized Moleskine sketchbook.  I loved the gift, but I thought it might be too small for any real sketching.  I was wrong – it’s a perfect little book for quick sketches.  I now carry it, and a Pigma Micron 01 black ink pen, with me wherever I go.

Below are some sample sketches from my pocket Moleskine.  Thanks Honey!

As I mentioned in my “Why I Write (Part 2)” post, Mordecai Richler is one of my favorite authors.  I took a shot at drawing him.

Early in June, I was in Dallas visiting some clients and former colleagues.  On the way to one of my meetings, I snapped a picture of The Cathedral Santuario de Guadalupe on my cell phone.  On the flight back to San Francisco, I completed this sketch.

This sketchbook has come in handy during long flights.  I’ve completed a few sketches on the plane, including the one above.

My buddy, Stuart, is flying helicopters in Afghanistan (although he’s currently safe at home on a break).  He’s made friends with a few of the soldiers, and I drew this sketch from a very cool photo he took of one of his friends.  Thanks for your service, Specialist.
