I've been doing some new sketches in my notebook of houses, tombstones, conversation bubbles and ghosts. One of my advisors told me he was glas I was doing them in my notebook and sparing everyone from having to look at them nice paper. Harsh. But I'm still sort of interested in them-- I mean, obviously, they're silly, they're scribbles, they're hardly even the seeds of ideas... but they're also fun to draw, they're fast and easy and they're didactic versions of the images of the subject I'm hoping to make work about. To not draw them would be like someone else making paintings about Christ without dealing with how to draw and what it means to draw the cross.
