“If U Do Drugs?”

This sketchbook has big “I’m trying to impress you” energy.

I picked it up at Blick with my then-new now-old girlfriend (she’s not old, the relationship is). It was my junior year of college and at that point I hadn’t done any serious drawing in a couple years. I thought a good way to impress her would be to fill up a sketchbook and show off my talent. I was also trying to make her laugh which explains why this sketchbook turned into what it is: a quirky, colorful, often unsettling attempt to woo a beautiful girl.

We’re still together, so I’m gonna go ahead and give this sketchbook some credit.

I’ve selected some impressive ones.
