Shopping Trip

Shopping always fills my head with more ideas. Every time I travel somewhere, I go to the local market. Some that I thought were most aesthetically interesting have been in Germany and California. My favorite in New Jersey is Wegmans. Fresh produce there comes in a close second to California. Plus, there is an attention to design that I haven’t seen in other moderately priced markets here. Food shopping should be a sensory experience, not a dreaded chore.

Favorite People to Draw

Karen Sugarpants tweeted something this morning that reminded me that I haven’t drawn any Amy Winehouses yet this week. Ms. Winehouse is a great subject. A walking cartoon. I hope she gets what she needs, because I’d like her to be around a good long time, so I can keep drawing her.

I know it’s just a doodle. We are experiencing technical difficulties as we await the arrival of a new scanner.

Ojos De Los Huevos

Perhaps it was severe allergies that inspired this, perhaps it was stress, I can’t say for sure.

I do well with pressure. When I’m juggling many things, I often volunteer to juggle even more. I like it and would rather be super busy than idle. I write all my tasks on my to-do list to make sure I don’t miss anything. During these moments, my random cartoon thoughts get more frequent and decidedly outer-limits. Words with pictures. Movie posters in my head.

My color palette. Plastic coated paper plates. Dollar stores sell them. Perhaps you have some left over from that party you had in 1983. The kind with a dreadful design. I used to spend so much money on those fancy disposable palettes from the art supply places. As much as the whole concept of “disposable” does not fit with my trying to produce less waste, acrylics demand a surface that can be tossed out.

Inspirations for Color

The inspiration for my color palette comes from here:
