I think I’m going to make a Facebook Moleskine Sketchbook for myself, and people like myself, who would rather draw caricatures of friends rather than read the banal, tiresome updates of real friends. The illustrations in this mock-up were pulled from old sketchbooks, as well as a line drawing of the Red, White & Bubbly, in Brooklyn. The status and life events by my fictitious friend, Walter Sobchak, were pulled from IMDB’s listing on The Big Lebowski.
I either have a very low opinion of Lady MacBeth, or am somewhat obsessed with her presence. In highschool, I was in three productions of The Scottish Play and co-wrote two satires (MacBeth Revisited, MacBeth Revisited Revised). I’ve seen the show a number of times and find myself doodling scenes from it from time to time—including this watercolor on wood painting of her reassuring her tormented husband and convincing him to hide the murder weapons. The latest is this vector drawing of Lady Mac retrieving the daggers from Duncan’s chamber and plotting her next move. Sadistic, wouldn’t you say? Either way, your feedback is certainly appreciated.
Katherine sent this link, which I thought was funny/interesting enough to repost on [d]online. I was a late admirer of J. R. R. Tolkien. In 4th or 5th grade, Mike Fishbein read The Hobbitt. All I knew was that he could draw a much better dragon than I could (probably still can). So my 9-year-old mind figured that it must have to do with some secrets he’d gleaned from the Tolkien book. Not understanding most of the words or messages in The Hobbitt, I gave up after three pages.
