The simple things

Some freehand sketches with a sharpie; something about working with sharpies is really freeing. Its like the materials are so cheap and "low-end" that I'm not as worried about making mistakes and just have more fun with it.

The words are from a Tom Waits song (Cemetery Polka). I think it's a good fit, but that line was stuck in my head for a week so probably everything I drew was starting to seem like a good fit for it.


  1. I think I might have to draw uncle violet..

    ..flew as a pilot
    And there ain't no pretty girls in France
    Now he runs a tiny little bookie joint
    They say he never keeps it in his pants

  2. You just want an excuse to draw it...
