Sketches from November's Dr. Sketchy, featuring Noir Leather's own Kat Fegley!

Like I had posted way earlier this year, most of my work these days gets done on my tablet PC and therefore doesn't see the light of day as printed pieces. So to make sure that some hard copy version is saved for posterity I've used blurb.com's services to print book versions of my computer-bound "sketchbooks".
Though the year isn't technically over, a pretty good deal I got from blurb prompted me to whip together a 2009 sketchbook and send it off to print. This time I decided to get a larger book (13x11 inches) with a wraparound hardcover, 214 pages long. It's interesting to see artwork that was previously much teenier on my tablet all blown up and huge with my mistakes all glaringly obvious. Still, it's nice to be able to hold it in my hands and flip through the last year, and then put it on the bookshelf next to my other sketchbooks.

Azucena and I caught Erin McKeown and Jill Sobule putting on quite an awesome performance at the Ark in Ann Arbor last night. I was thrilled to see McKeown would be playing local, but when I saw that Sobule was touring with her I knew this was a no-miss show. I'd never been to the Ark before - it's like having a concert in your living room - tiny and intimate. Afterward we met both of them. I had to pick up the latest CDs - I've only listened to Erin Mckeown's so far, and I'm liking it a lot. Both of them were very personable and Erin and I even had a little discussion on the merits of her CD jacket design.
