Quick sketches bring an appreciation for inconsequential moments

Besides the drawings I post to this blog, I try to do other sketches throughout my day. Sketching helps me discover new things that otherwise I would not have paid attention to. Today I thought about sharing some of those more mundane, inconsequential paper scratchings. I’ve also been posting them via Twitter‘s twitpic, where I’ve started to upload the first drawing I do every day. Some people need a smoke after the morning coffee –I used to be one of those before I quit 7 years ago– others need their espressos. I’m addicted to sketching.
