About journaling and other thoughts.

Now that I am getting older and my mobility is limited I find myself sketching when I go out. I have been looking a lot at peoples sketches on the net and I am finding the most attractive ones have some order to them. Like panels and personal notes. Below is one I did from Saturdays fly fishing expo in Albany, Oregon. I think it looks better this way and certainly better for others to look at. I added a bit of ink when I got home. I still have some things to learn, but this is, I think heading in the right direction.

I also adding a warm up doodle that I did on Saturday. I wish I would have put it in my sketchbook and not on the program. And another doodle that was an idea that I had. I was thinking of a bunch of chimps hanging out around a fly tyer and smoking drinking coffee and telling stories. I don't know if I will work on this or not it is just an idea at this point, but everyone who has seen this has had something to say about it. I think everyone must like monkeys!

The last item I wanted to share today is a song from The Dave Clark Five. I heard yesterday their lead singer died. They were a great group from the "English invasion", a musical movement that was in the early 1960's.
