Moleskine 4.0

This one is a long time coming. I neglected it for a few months. Haven't been drawing on the trains very much (too busy catching up on my sleep on the train rides to work).


I started paying more attention to hands rather than faces in mid 2007.






After drawing the chubby guy with the goatee I got freaked out because he looked a lot like me. Unfortunately it did not help me get my ass out of bed early and head to the gym as much as I thought it would.










When I was in California for the Comic-Con in July, my friend Lana Crooks and I took a break from all the madness of the convention and spent Saturday at the San Diego Zoo.















Some gestures of nudes from the Society of Illustrators Jazz Sketch Sessions.










And some ideas for a new painting.
