new book...new stuff!

there's something funny about starting a new sketchbook...the first page somehow intimidates you for no reason at all. why do people feel compelled to make the first page look their absolute best. IT'S A SKETCHBOOK FOLKS! i'm a hypocrite of these words, sadly enough. i tore the first page out, mostly because of anger and just being annoyed by the things around me at the time. i think what it is is the fact that annoying people who seem all too satisfied with life come up to you with that "let's see if i'm better than you" attitude and ask to look through your book. thus, having a great first page would hopefully shut them up and make them feel stupid. YUP! my goal is to make people feel dumb; that's the ultimate purpose for this new sketchbook. conclusion...i'll tear out hundreds of pages before i get that amazing first page just so the people who look through it can be put to shame. thank you God for this new meaning in life!!! i am so forever thankful.

i found that i've sinned. my first page reeks badly, everyone around me is much much better...so now i'm gong to hell. sorry i failed you o God.

here's some random stuff in my book...NOT starting at the first page...............

Philip! You're funny, man. I love the batman stuff. I've kind of stopped using a sketchbook and just draw on random pieces of paper now. It feels less intimidating... But why should it, anyways? Kinda weird. But I know what you mean! And don't forget, there's no such thing as sinning in sketchbooks!

Hey Phil. Thanks for opening up the comments so us non-bloggers can comment. Love your stuff, especially your monochromatic painting. And if making a bad sketchbook drawing is a sin, I've been sinning for, what, 20 years now? Haha. Keep at it, man.
