These drawings are from my journals. I do them usually while on the phone, or late at night when I am at the end of the day and relaxing. The drawings are always done for relaxation, and never consciously attempting to draw anything in particular.
Currently living in LA, until recently spending my working days inside an office cubicle doing web design, I have to tell myself that my whole LA experience seems equivalent to the Native American ritual of being wrapped up in a blanket and voluntarily engaging in sensory and nutritional deprivation—praying for some clear sight.
