I like to think that I liked owls before they became trendy. But the timing was really close. Maybe I'm a trendsetter! Maybe I started the whole owl obsession! Probably not. Luckily I didn't go overboard with owl paraphernalia. But I will admit, there are a few owls around the house.

This is Owl (the stuffed animals in our house have very original names), a puppet from IKEA that I couldn't resist.

Sketchy Car Rides

It's been awhile since I've posted. I can't believe how fast three months can go by! I haven't made time to draw anything for an extended period of time, so I try to find a few minutes here and there when I can. Sometimes I have five to ten minutes before I need to go into work, so I get out my tiny Moleskine and draw the stuff laying around my messy car. Sometimes I take Simon for a ride so he will nap, and I pull over somewhere and draw. Today I went to Havre de Grace, and before I left I drew the alley in front of my parking spot. They're not always the most inspiring things, but it keeps me drawing. And that keeps me sane.
