My sister and her mother friends decided to run the Napa Valley Ragnar relay a couple of weeks ago. They were short one runner on their team so my brother stepped up and joined the mothers as one of the mothers’ brothers. They wanted matchy-matchy shirts to all sport for the race so I put these together for them. They did really well and despite the torture they put their bodies through I think they’re glad they did it! I hear they ran through some really pretty scenery out on the coast.
I can’t claim this as my idea, but rather my sister’s. She sent me an email the other day with a Word document attachment. She suggested making a t-shirt. I wish I had screen printing equipment! Instead, I did the next best thing…a poster.
I’ve tried many times and have had a hard time keeping an actual sketchbook. I do much better with loose sheets of paper, partly because I can’t stand not drawing on a flat surface. The binding makes it awkward as well as my hand partially hanging off of the edge of hundreds of sheets of stacked paper. I wish I enjoyed it more, because I love having/seeing a bound collection of misc. drawings all contained within a nice little sketchbook. But try as I might I always end up drawing on single sheets of paper, usually just 8.5″ x 11″ and always in landscape orientation. So what I’ve ended up with is a ton of loose sheets of paper that I plan on somehow binding at some point in time. Maybe I’ll start making ‘yearbooks’ of drawings…that would be nice. This page is the result of a recent day’s doodles. This was done on normal bond paper with a red Pilot G2.
