Once or twice every 30 pages in a sketchbook I have a drawing that seems to me to be my current Pinnacle. This was one of those drawings… the lines just flowed out of my pen. Every drawing, for a time, after I was chasing after something in this drawing that was a mystery to me. The reason I like sketching from life so much is precisely for this immutable reason. Although I know at the first line that this will be one of those defining drawings, I never know when they are coming so I draw from life as much as possible because; at these times drawing is not just a joy: it is absolutely sublime.
This is a quick little cartoon I did of my buddy Jay from Boredom Pays. We were hanging out at the Java House in Toronto with my buddy Oliver sketching, talking about post-modern literature, fragmentation and time travel and snacking on deep fried tofu.
