Something about being Lost in Translation with a coffee type drink waiting for the next flight ignites the sketch.
3 sketchbooks and at some point I used a sketchbook to plan another sketchbook.
Also art tools are limited and this post was edited with a phone, hope it doesn’t look too janky. I may also can’t tell cause I slept 2 hours x2 in the last 24 hours…
In the darker hours of life, seek imagination.
Let the rest go.
Make a mess.

SBP. More progress! Have you ever seen the backside of a marker piece? Sometimes the backside is as interesting as the frontside. Life adage or something, right?
Doodles. Check out this haunting motion piece, Danielle. I sketched that while watching those 5 minutes. She really does have that gaze. The happy little tree sketch is inspired by my Kinokuniya tote.
Supplies. A hoard of various papers from Flax! A little Moomin who will now live on my traveling pouch of sketch materials. Thanks Liz!
I acquired this new pen and I’m not ashamed to admit that when offered a Baileys Coffee I goddamn took it. So, top-to-bottom: Bryan Lee O’Malley study, Kaori Wakamatsu study, beginnings of Poignantly Ordinary (a webcomic I intend to start), and some lettering.

Eric Reiss’ talk two Thursdays ago. P.S. There’s an IXDA series, UX in Space next Wednesday @ Trulia’s 9th floor rooftop penthouse. All 8 talks from DxFSF.
In < 24 hours, I illustrated 9 talks.
Thinking about it makes my right hand pulsate a bit.
Sorry Tumblfolk, I haven’t been sketching much lately because I’ve been heads down into a few freelance projects and a larger project of my own. That, and finding another fulltime gig.
Still, I can’t help but to waste time doodling. Here a few favourite form the past few months pulled off of instagram. I’m @susanl if you care to follow.
