Text reads, "RAIN and wind are blowing fiercely. Great night for trick-or-treating. Eli is going to be Mr. Incredible, or Dash, depenging on when you ask him. The baby comes on Thursday...or sooner. WE are scheduled for Thursday induction though. Getting a little nervous now. How did the breathing go?"

Another sketch of my son napping. Faces are really hard for me. I really screwed up the lips. Or something. He's not a monkey, really. Oh, I'm starting to use some rubber stamps I just got.
The text reads, "Eli has been so loving and affectionate lately. He is such a sweet kid. He crashed on the couch tonight after a long day at grandma's. "Dad, you know what? What? I love you!" makes me feel so food. He doesn't look like a monkey (as I've drawn), but he does act like one."

The text reads, "Well, slow day, thought I would get an oil change. This Toyota Prius hybrid was parked in front. Today I had time to draw it befre they took it away for service. It drove off with a silent whiiirr, due to the electric motor, instead of the grrowhooa of a gas engine. Pretty cool.
An older woman walking by with her dog just said by drawing was beautiful. Cool.

Draw while on a site in the industrial area of Northwest Portland. This excavator was next door on the Porland CSO project. Specifically, the Nicolai shaft. The project involves the construction of several of these hundred plus foot vertical shafts and severl large diameter tunnels.

Well, I haven't really drawn in public before, usually huddled in a corner or in my truck. On my way to grab a sandwhich I stopped to draw a few of things in Oregon City. A fountain down the street, Clackamas County Courthouse, an old motorcycle, and the Municipal elevator. They're pretty sloppy. I was nervous. When I was drawing the courthouse a guy came up and told me someone put it there just for me to appreciate/draw. When he walked by to return to his car he told me to keep having fun. Cool.

If you can't read the text, either due to the size or the messiness, it says "Samantha is coming soon. Time to make sure we have enough tapes and a charged battery. I can't delieve the birth is so close. When do you call the hospital?"
My sketchbook is morphing into more of a visual journal now, which was always the intent. This sketchbook was supposed to be practice for my first moleskine.
