last week's sketches and jury duty

started jury duty today -
an excellent place to cool off.
didn't get empaneled.
Federal Court doesn't permit
electronics - no phones, no tablets
no computers. that was eye opening.
realized how much i rely on the iphone.

these sketches are from an especially
frustrating and unsuccessful outing last week.
i figure i should post what i regard as
failures same as what i regard as successes.


  1. I guess these weren't jury sketches eh? I think you captured the movement pretty nicely. I know how painful drawing can be at times, not that I've done so much of it myself.

  2. It's funny what we consider as failures in our work, what I see here are very vibrant and plenty of movement. I have often been curious about jury duty, I have never (or not yet) been called myself but have dreaded getting called when I hear of the big biker mass trials in my area. I also echo what Kim (above) says about the ache of making art sometimes.
