Quick Draw McGraw




I've developed a very interesting lunch time ritual lately. I have an hour to get out, eat, and get back and since my studio is close to my office and next door to a burrito joint, I've been adding a little lunch time art exercise to the mix. By the time I ride my bike to the burrito joint, I'm down 15 minutes. Burrito=another 15 minutes. Then, I draw for 15 minutes. Just stream of conciousness stuff. No thinking, no judging, just what comes out of my head. Sometimes very orderly, sometimes scattered. Anyway, it's fun, challenging, and really stops me from caring about the quality. Beating the clock and filling the page are all that matter. You should try it.

  1. That CRAFTY graphic is really crying out to be tattooed.

  2. I'm totally feelin' the CRAFTY! Very cool. More intriguing to me is the "Ghosts of Answered Prayers"... sounds like a fascinating story.

  3. Aw thanks y'all. Just sketching, really. The Ghosts of Answered Prayers just came to me as a nice idea. I haven't figured out what it means yet. Something to do with what you fervently wish for, having unforseen consequences to someone else. I think it sounds nice, mostly. Good band or song name. What's it mean to you?

  4. I like the "Crafty" with whas looks like a wee sewing needle trailing off of it. NICE!

  5. I agree with Fights Like a Girl, I would TOTALLY get this as a tattoo. Great job!

  6. Aw, thanks Renee. At least let me draw one that's more than a sketch before you commit ink to skin, as it were.
