The “wrong year” syndrome

pockesketchbook01-m.jpg
On my last post, I asked readers what types of sketches they’d like to see more of in this blog in 2012. So far, the answer with the most votes on my Facebook poll is “more drawings from my everyday pocket sketchbook.”
To honor that, here’s a spread from my pocket Moleskine fresh out of the scanner. On the left, an ink and watercolor drawing of someone about to cross over a puddle speaks for itself. It’s been rainy and gray out there. On the right, two fellow bus commuters done in pencil on my way home last evening.
I must be really looking forward to 2012. I just noticed that’s the year I wrote on the right page. Now, just wait for me to start writing 2011 instead of 2012 in following pages. Is there a name for that? The “wrong year” syndrome?
