Mini Epiphany and Sketch Dump

Last night I sat down to create a drawing for the upcoming art show at the Stoneworks gallery in Ventura for the First Friday event. The theme this time is “Beard and Mustache”. I don’t know why but as much as I wanted to do a really special piece I just didn’t have it in me. I have been very blue and scattered these past months especially since my move but I did manage to scratch this out of my pencil:

col-erase pencil, sketch, god, man

God + man

 

I didn’t know what to think of this doodle but I felt it wasn’t working so I “dropped the needle” on my web browser bookmarks for inspiration and opened up this page: http://grillomation.blogspot.com/
Paydirt! what cool and amazing drawings by Oscar Grillo -so I grabbed my fountain pens and  just started drawing for the joy of it and let my mind wander. Here is what poured out of my pen. I hope this is the beginning of my getting back into my own skin again. I hope you like ’em as much as I did doodlin’ ’em.

So I didn’t get a piece for the show but I think I am finally shaking off the funk.
