Drink & Inkers

I’ve been going to the Drink & Ink gathering, sponsored by BINDERS, Milltown Arms Tavern and, of course The Cube Gallery.

It’s a blast.

I tried to capture everyone’s personality without making a portrait of any one person. I kept the sketch loose, since we’re talking about drawing in a bar,I wanted to convey that feeling..


I have proven to myself time and time again that I can’t control myself around Starburst and/or Smarties.

Larry, Gus and I had dinner and a movie tonight. I had just enough to feel full. That is until Gus pulled out the Starburst Fruit Chews of Uncomfortableness. I ate one after the other.

Gah…I am paying for it now.



South Gate Sentry

The color swatches above the sentry is the palette I created while coloring yesterday’s sketch. I have this habit of drawing a random line and then imagining the possible sketches that may come out of it. This is one of those sketches.

The palette portion of this piece could possibly resemble some famous works of art, such as some later works by Kandinsky. So, if my intention was to create the palette as the work of art, instead of the drawing of the sentry (which, happened to be a doodle I did while creating the palette), my question is, what’s the difference?

The answer is, absolutely nothing. They are both a by-product of the process. If I cut the two apart and posted them side by side each day, there would be some who like the palette better than the sketch.

And that is okay by me.

I have no intention of posting the palettes every week, by the way. I was just making a point.
