So I've been doing a lot of sketchbook drawing lately, and here's another image-dump to go along with the ones I posted the other week.
I touched on it briefly in the last entry, but I have a huge pile of decaying sketchbooks under my bed from the days when I would compulsively fill any time I had lying around with doodles, comic strips and scrappy drawings designed to make me or my friends (but mainly me) laugh. It's something that fell by the wayside a bit when I started to take this putting marks on a bit of paper thing more seriously.
When you take your favourite hobby and decide to pursue it as a career you get to spend your time doing something that you love, but you also lose the hobby. I still draw all the time, but now it's actually a way to be productive, rather than a way of escaping productivity. These days it feels like I'm being sensible when I do it. Which was really never the point at all.
These quick pages are me trying to claw back some of that anarchic spirit that I used to have in the days before two day hangovers and car insurance. I miss the freewheeling creativity of filling a book with any old made up nonsense, it seems that all I'm good for nowadays is portraits of people from TV shows and movies that I like.
So in order to rectify that here are some sketchbook pages with pictures of people from TV shows and movies that I like: Kate Winslet as Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (above), Danny DeVito as Frank Reynolds from It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia and Elisabeth Moss as Peggy Olson from Mad Men (below).
