Not much time or energy to write a long thoughtful post today, so instead I'm including a scan of two sketches I've recently created in my pocket Moleskine sketchbook:

Left page: This is realization of an idea I had for encapsulating ideas from books as free form type-treatment sketches. In this case, I'd been reading Never Eat Alone by Keith Ferrazzi, and had been inspired by many of the ideas Keith presents. So, I set out to capture the ideas floating to the surface of my mind on a page in my Moleskine. I had so much fun doing this I may do it again for other books I'm reading.
Right page: The sketches on this page are much less logical and ordered. I spent a day in the Milwaukee County Jury pool last week with some time on my hands, so I began sketching things that caught my eye in the cafeteria and assembly room. Actually, the bottom half of this page sat blank for nearly a week, until last night, when I completed it with a sketch of a character from the TV series Monk, and commentary on my short stint in jury service.
I hope you enjoy this funky blend of sketches. :-)
