Diary Comics Catch-Up


5/20/24 imagination

My diary comics continue, though not necessarily regularly. If I’ve had a typical day of the “usual” sketches made on location (especially now that the weather has been terrific), that usually takes care of my need to document my day. But sometimes things happen that I can’t sketch on the spot, and I still want to record them. That’s when I sketch from either photos or memory. I enjoy the “shorthand” of documenting visually instead of with words, which are fast and efficient but also feel dry and flat compared to sketches.

Its fun to see the page colors change through these four weeks as I go through different Uglybooks.

All sketches in this post were made from life except as noted.

5/24/24 This page and the next one were made on the bus; I was trying to see whether
it was possible to use my Pentel Pocket Brush Pen on a very rough transit ride.

  1. Good to see that you are continuing your diary comics. How great that you still have a friend that you've known since kindergarten. Old friendships are the best!

    1. That friendship is very special! We don't get together often, but when we do, it's like we continue the same conversation we've had almost all our lives!
