I realized today in the waiting room at a doctor’s appointment with Jon that it’s been a long time since I’ve been able to do one of these drawings.
For some months, last spring and summer, my sketch pad was full of “Waiting for Jon” drawings. It feels good to be on the other side of that. Today we didn’t even wait long enough for me to finish the drawing.
My friend Emily gave me this little sketch book last year. It’s about 3″x4″ and I just started carrying it around in my bag since I used up the last little sketch book.
It has a drawing that I did last January that was inspired by a visit to the Williams College Museum where I saw an illuminated book about the same size. On one page were words and on the other a pictures.
I want to keep that format though out the whole sketch book.
But I won’t just use it for “Waiting for Jon” drawings. I have a feeling it would take too long to fill it up. And that’s a good thing.
