I've always doodled at times I should be paying attention to something else. Put me in front of a teacher and I'll be doodling within moments. When my wife was recently hospitalized, The only way I could control my tension was to fish a small pad out and start in. The faces don't necessarily reflect my mood, just some sort of inner dial saying- draw a growling face, now a smiling one, now a laughing guy, now a shout. I draw weird bird when I feel self conscious about always doing another face.

You may notice in these scans that the paper is just a bit see-thru. I dont mind this, in fact, more then half the time the doodles on the left hand side of the page are inspired by what I can see showing through, so some times an evil twin is created, a happy version of a sad face from the previous page, or something suggested by the layering of multiple drawings.

Here are few pages from my sketchbook- this isn't really a great introduction to my work, this stuff lacks ambition but certainly shows at times a virtuoso touch. I rarely go below the shoulders (why knock myself out?) This a place where i can allow myself to be goofy, lazy, gross, and experimental.
