Jon and I spent most of the day going from one appointment to another. There was enough time in the waiting rooms for me to do a few drawings. And enough time between appointments to get a yummy lunch.
Today I used up the small hand-made paper book that Jon got me years ago. It always felt so precious to me, I didn’t want to use it. So, a month or so ago, I asked Jon to draw a line though each page and that freed me up to make my own marks (he missed the last page, but I didn’t need it by then).
The pages are about 3″x4″ and there aren’t a lot of them. When I use a pencil it smudges (ghost drawings) and when I use marker, the ink shows though on the other side of the paper.
Instead of skipping the page with the ink showing through, I decided to use it. So it has a bit of “ghost” to it too.
I think that long line of chairs speaks best to the idea of waiting than any of the “waiting” drawings I’ve done so far.
I might expand on that idea when I start my next “Waiting For Jon” sketch pad.
