I found a sketchbook and started working in it again a few weeks ago. The cover says "Peeves" and it's made out of the Perspectives magazine. (Thanks, Ringling!) I never notice my dependency on the color yellow until it's staring me right in the face. It's a sunny color. Very apt for a California winter, I guess.

Figure drawings from work (which has been suspended until 2012), and the text in the third is from A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, which I completely ripped apart for an altered book only because it was thick and had a long title. Pieces of it's insides will show up now and again in lots of things. There's also weird diagrams and things inside, which I collect all magpie-like.

But I'll tell you, dear reader, it sure feels good to be working again. There were weeks (months?) that I was writing a lot, a lot, but not drawing, or making monsters, or doing anything with my hands other than typing on the ol' computer. Now I'm trying to balance things again, but who knows how long that will last, since winter is always that part of the year I hate the most and have a tendency to drop off the side of the world.

In an unrelated note: Did you know Iggy Pop does the backing vocals in Rolodex Propaganda? Go listen to it. I'll wait. ............Yeah! That's totally him! He's amazing! Don't you just want to high five that dude? Yeah, I know! Me, too! Iggy Pop is the coolest. Remember when he was on Pete & Pete? Crazy.
