Hello

May 30th, 2007

Hi, folks. This is the new sketchbook section to my website. Despite its suspicious trappings, it’s not really a blog. What I’m hoping is that it will facilitate my posting more everyday, sketchbook work. Archived, easy to upload… well, that’s the idea. What could go wrong?

You can also access it directly in my website’s “sketch” section.

Sooo, I’ve disabled comments. It’s not you, it’s me. I do honestly believe that one should really cut loose in a sketchbook and not have “a viewer” in the back of your mind as you create. I want to avoid self-censorship and just post anything, no matter how crappy or random in nature. Lucky you!

If you have any comments or suggestions, feel free to email me.

This is a drawing of my Tata (grandmother), who recently died. She was a professional bellydancer and owned nightclubs in Montreal. Her sister (below), Amira Amir, was apparently quite a famous Egyptian actress… a real beaut, no?
