Sketchbook Archives: Part II (2001 - Toronto, LA, India, Korea)

This and the following I did as a series of automatic brush and ink drawings.  I tried to produce them as rapidly as possible, with no mental editing.  Hence several drawings are excluded from this post, since they were either not very good or they were too explicit for posting!

The heart-and-airplane motif appears again in "The Sad Elephant," a comic story I did for mini-comic Fear Itself  #7 (2003.)

The above drawing was kind of a throw-away at the time,
now it's one of my favourites.  I arrived in India
for my 3rd visit on September 9, 2001.
