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.
