The Death of a Sketchbook.

This weekend I brutally murdered a monster sketchbook. These are some of the spoils of the kill.


Part of my continuing effort to be like Anthony Holden - who draws far better and funner than I do.
Izzy dominated this sketchbook. She won't look like this in the film, but I'm still kind of partial to the red-hair and pink skirt.


On off days, this model doubles as a stoplight.


Yet another self-portrait. Notice I discreetly close the eyes so that you would immediately suspect I'm drawing myself again...


Jake - trying to teach me composition.

Club 11! It spanned the crack and I thought that was cool.


Unrelated: Discovering new music is like discovering a new favorite food. But unlike food, which often inspires hoarding and binge-ing, music just makes me want to share! So if you're bored with your stuff, get a taste of Mika, Jay Newland, Owl City, Missy Higgins and Joshua Minsky. All of whom rock the house.

Oh, Laura. You're so entertaining :) Good work, yay for sketchbook killing! I think that the images that Jake taught you how to compose [or apparently "tried" to teach you] turned out pretty well. Now you can teach me!

And, girl, I hear you about the self-portrait thing. If you look at my work, I think you'll feel better about the appeared narcissism.

I watched you draw the fourth one from the bottom! I feel like I'm part of the in-crowd.

These look great, Laura. :)

Way to bump off another one!
I like the stoplight models.... but how could you bring yourself to keep drawing when the hair turned red?

I like the way you murder sketchbooks...these are lovely.

And self-portraits are fine. Narcissists pay other people to draw them. :-)
