SKETCHES

“I started a daily sketch blog a while back when my wife, Jordin, was doing a ‘Photo 365’ project. Many of the drawings ended up being of the two of us. During that year, many people told us they felt like they got to know us better through the drawings, like they were a peek into our personal life.” – Curtis

July 9th, 2012 – Tonight, my wife and I had a long list of things to get done. Instead, we sat on the couch, she read to me, I played guitar for a while, and then I drew a picture… in fact the first drawing on here since finishing the 365 project! In my opinion, these were all better alternatives than “the list”. And I like to let my feet float up in the air while lying on the couch. Don’t know why. Sometimes I do it with my hands too.
