Sketch Crawl #1

Led by the fearless J.P. Vine, we stormed the old Tel Aviv harbor, armed to the teeth with sketchbooks, pens and pencils. These are the less lousy drawing I came up with. Does photoshopation add anything, or does it take away? You be the judge.

Unfortunate circumstances have brought me to spend some hours in the hospital.

I hate hospitals. They stress me out. The neon lighting, the bland colors, the constant humming, the still quietness with the occasional cough. I saw a doctor; for the life of me, I can't understand how anyone would be willing to go through years of hard training, only to end up spending most of his waking hours in such a bleak environment. Yes, I know they're helping people and all. Perhaps I'm just not enough of an altruist.

You know what I really missed in there? Something to focus on, some points of interest for the eye to rest upon. It's all so damn repetitive! A small colorful picture here and there, an occasional plant, perhaps a cheerful decoration hanging from the ceiling – why not? It's not expensive, and I think it can do so much for the wellbeing of both patients and staff.

Or maybe I don't understand anything.

Dr. Pane

Absent minded doodling can bring out some strange stuff out of one's brain. Here's something I did during dailies at Crew972.

Looking for style

More design pondering for the children book I'm illustrating.
