after having participated in The Sketchbook Project, i have finally gotten back into the swing of sketching and journaling.



while i don’t consider myself to have any ‘style’ of drawing or composition, there are methods and processes that i play a lot with and gravitate towards.  after having not participated in journaling for months, picking up these habits again were difficult.  i gave myself a ridiculous timeline and was, for the most part, not very inspired.

was i between methods [styles]?

i am tilting on towards overlapping architecture, simple black lines on white. i am thinking about pointillism.



my ‘new zine’ will be mostly in this style.  i hope it doesn’t come across as ‘lazy’, i’m just not feeling dense layers.  the story was going to be an ‘anthology’ of hutch memories and stories but it got too personal very quickly.  there’s a lot to choose from and it’s all valid but unnecessary.

there’s a supposed audience to consider.  who the hell wants to read about 4 am existential crises and pancakes?  while i am sure some might be able to relate to the matter, i want the stories to be more about sense / place memory than specific memories.  tell without telling.

until i figure out where exactly i’m taking this, i have nietzsche to deal with.

this compendium of text / drawings DEVOURS pens.  luckily i’ve been getting them at 2/$1.  i’m lucky if i can get 10 pages done in a day before my spine fails at supporting me.
