The End of an Era (or my sketchbook)

We met near the end of August, and parted ways on November 21st. 2010.

I always feel a little sad when I reach the last pages of a sketchbook. Something that's been with me nearly every day for the last 3 months will soon be replaced by another book. And the cycle will once more start again, filling in pages, writing down thoughts, recording life down one page at a time. It's a little blue, like saying goodbye to a friend.

Au revoir, until we meet again.

Political Incorrectness Day

A little bit o' afternoon tea and caffeine with my mate Antoine. Talks of Curries and China plates abounded, and life changing decisions were announced. Presents and taro cakes were exchanged, and another afternoon passed by way too quickly. As always though, (to borrow a phrase) it's a pleasure..

Expensive Coffee

Busy day today! Went sketching this time at a fancy schmancy French Cafe/restaurant, they had delicious macaroons but alas, burnt coffee! Large and spacious, Chris and I were surrounded by mostly old people, and the two older gentlemen sitting next to us were talking about Target, and whether or not there were any Targets in San Francisco for about half the time we were there. 

Then it was back to work again, but at least I got to cut the cake with my mom. Happy Birthday Mama!

Good Times

A sunny Sunday at Delores park, with hoola hoopers gathered together and people dressed as superheroes climbing hills in their rollerblades. It's a good time to be alive, a good time to reconnect with friends. After sitting on the grass for a while, we retreated back to Sissi's little garden, a cozy outdoor place that feels secluded from the world. And we ate our ice cream as night fell and candlelight illuminated our faces.

A Beautiful Day For Bananafish and Ramen

A wonderful day in the Richmond District with my new friend David. We had a sketch session at the Velo Rogue, and then we sketched outside while listening to an impromptu drum concert on Hippy Hill. That spontaneous, feel good energy, gotta love ya San Francisco.
