Potpourri for a hundo....

Yuck. Jose Garibaldi is a little sick. Just a little, and it wouldn't beso bad if I could breathe and not cough while I sleep. I was going through some old sketchbooks this past weekend and came across some crazy shit. That plus the Stevie Wonder I was listening to brought back a flood of memories. Mostly good. But aren't most memories of good times? Although a lot of the drawings aren't directly documentary of what was going on, I could remember where I was and how I felt at the time I did them. The following are from the 7th sketchbook I kept. The tone changes about a quarter into the book. I was a 21 year old head over heels in love. I started experimenting with color and style. I think this was the furthest departure from my normal "style" ever. Twas the Office Max era. Right before I started to make a living as a cartoonist/illustrator, before I knew how to use a computer. Before Bush, before 9/11, rediculous oil prices, Patriot Act paranoia, Katrina...et al

ahhh, boy with his head in the clouds. De La, Tribe, SNL and Love...

Those were the days. I am proud of how far I've come artistically and mentally since then. Though, I was much more physically fit then. Fucking computers.....

Well, here's a couple new sketch pages. Still trickling them out. I'm working my way back into productivity, albeit slowley...

My ipod froze again ( I just got it back from apple/best buy two months ago!) while was at the laundromat. sucked. Anyway, that's twice in three months. Twice more and I get a new one. Shouldn't be doing this, just need to spur my creativity a lil bit..
