drawings this week

I felt very uninspired in most of what I drew this week but decided to post sketchbook selections anyway.

I was happy with Alan's hands - even though he has two right thumbs.

I made these sketches, while reading this article.

The drawing of Nicholson Baker (who I have long wanted to read) is a copy. I thought trying to copy it might help me think about drawing. It did.

I hope and pray that Spike Jonze is happier than he looks here. I like the NYT magazine article (and the photos with it) a lot. My favourite quote: 'Catherine Keener, who was nominated for an Oscar for her work in “Being John Malkovich” and who plays a divorced mother in “Where the Wild Things Are,” told me that her 10-year-old son, Clyde, once asked her why Jonze didn’t live with his parents; apparently Clyde didn’t realize that Jonze was an adult.'

I speshly like the lower three pages of drawings. Also, I have some Nicholson Baker (not Vox, though) which you can borrow. Room Temperature is tremendous.

I'm going outside to do some digging and planting right now.
