today’s last-minute effort is celebratory:
been playing with Scribbler the last couple of days – it’s hell fun, and some of the results are terrific. Original drawings are on flickr too, but they’re just frameworks to go nuts on with scribbler.
top of the coat/hatrack in my room that holds all the scarves, hats & shawls etc that I never wear. Texta on cartridge.
quick pencil sketch of my daughter’s hands. 2B on cartridge.

Crowds of people mulling about this morning in front of the hotel. Those of us gawking and those in costomes queueing for the parade. The long title of this quick sketch: “Christmas Tree men and their Snowman wives with Little Drummer Boy with their shaggy dogs.” There were also Pizza men, a Gumby with a Pink Panther on his back, Clowns (of course), assorted Aliens – a veritable cacophony of strange and wonderous creatures… halloween on steriods.

Just after we ate Thanksgiving dinner the power went out which happens more than we’d like around here. We have a battery that runs a few lights and we eventually all wound up in the kitchen reading—for hours.

I think children’s gestures are wonderful but they change so quickly.
