Inspiration in the Mundane

7/14/12, Kuretake Brush Writer, Akashiya Thin Line, Hand Book sketchbook
I’ve heard it said that the subject of a sketch doesn’t have to be initially inspiring, because it’s the sketcher’s job to find the inspiration in the subject, no matter how banal. Driving through a Midwestern suburb, I tried to keep this in mind. While my spouse-man shopped at Target, I waited in the car to find inspiration in parking lot trees and a pickup. Fifteen minutes later, the pickup pulled away, and so did we.
