I almost finished Gamma sketchbook, makes me sad. It is such a great sketchbook and I filled it with momentarily sketches of people in a Subway, it is almost abuse. Almost like driving Ferrari to pick up a dog's poop on a curb.

I had two interesting ideas for interior decoration : dripping shadows for that pearl roses and frame, liquid like river, interrupted by groups of roses. I wish someone will do it and will be ideas generator.

This happy little car I met in Brooklyn. It says "Twins" on the side, because of 2 guys, musicians, who perform on events and gatherings in the community, I was told. It was in the shade of the tree, but bathing in the sunlight, spilled between leaves. It made me smile, I felt hope.
I used ink and Kuretake pens on Arches board.
Billy's band song.

I think it is really toning exercise, momentarily sketching, healthy use of combination of brain and hand, constant alert of visual aspect of life, keeps mind in shape.
Sketches on a Subway on the way home. It was a tough looking man with the bike near doors. Suddenly he start talking to me in different language, may be Portuguese , I didn't understand, it felt aggressive. I shook my head in "No" gesture. Some random lady suddenly translated to me, it was in Spanish, that he likes my drawings, beautiful, very good. What an exposure. I mumbled "Gracias" completely bewildered and missed on sketching adorable baby in blue stripy swimming suit with funny looking curly father in a hat. May be I should draw them from memory?

I really enjoyed ink puddles and drippings. Finding desirable ink it is like coming home. I added red ochre Kuretake and blue Faber-Castell Durer pencil. One day I want to get a bunch of Durer pencils. Now I have 3.

Overheard 2 boys conversation. They walked along the water, looking at something only clear to them bugs, twigs, tadpoles or rocks.
Bigger boy: How old are you?
Little: I am 6.
Bigger boy: Oh, I am 9, so I am six years older than you, so you have to listen to me.
Bigger boy: When I was your age I already knew everything.

I saw the movie, documentary about Francesca Woodman, called The Woodmans, what an amazing artist photographer, what an amazing short but so productive life, she committed suicide at age 22. Her diary, aren't we all feel the same? Why it is so hard to understand and be OK with being imperfect?
