Jury duty



Last week I served jury duty out in Ventura. The nice thing is that the weather's more mild out there, so sitting outside to have lunch, catch up on reading and sketching ... was quite pleasant. Versus, you know, 110 degrees in Van Nuys.

My poor moleskine.. I had a water bottle mishap quite a few months ago, and my sketchbook got soaked. The existing sketches were okay, but the rest of the pages took on a bit of a wrinkle. I figured I'd keep using the book until the wrinkles started to bug me. I'm pretty tolerant of lots of things, but these two sketches wouldn't scan cleanly [sigh], and the water wrinkles were just accentuated even more. These photos turned out much more clearly than the scans. All the same, I think it's time to retire this book, label it, and start in on a new one...
