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.
