I made this comic about seven years ago in a sketchbook and rediscovered it today. Please forgive the crude drawing, then forgive nothing else.
I was cleaning out my studio and I found a stale old sketchbook with only two pages drawn on in it. These were done absentmindedly while watching Andy Kaufmann's "My Breakfast with Blassie" a few years ago. I very rarely do caricatures, and it's not my typical drawing style, so these were weird to stumble on. Looking at old sketchbooks is like time traveling, and this one was had the added feeling that I was seeing into an alternate universe. In any case, I think they're funny drawings.
Here's a cheerful, friendly creature drawn in an older style.
It's better than being bored in church, but waiting in cramped holes watching bands sometimes tests my ability to stay in my skin, & quiet solace must be sought in the sketchbook. A friend suggested I put together a book of drawings of bad bands I've drawn over the years and call it "Your Band Sucks", turns out I actually don't have that many. Most are of good bands. This drawing is of a bad one, though. Sorry guys, whoever you are.
Went to the vet and there was this pug, fat and wheezy.
Came across an old sketch for an old painting, "The Congregation" this morning. In some ways I like it better than the finished piece. The sketch was made where a lot of drawing always got done during childhood--my parents' church. This time I was bored out my mind as an adult. Some things never change.
