[the occasional] Dumb Sketch

Backing away from the daily sketching of 2015, to observe more slowly and acutely.

I dig this guy’s music.

    I saw this in a documentary about Pärt and Robert Wilson and thought, ‘Isn’t it immensely distracting to have someone filming the side of your head while you’re driving?’ I also notice that he didn’t tell people to get a move on or use their damn’ indicators which is what I do when I’m driving…

    Wonderful man, though, and the music of angels.

    Of course I have to second and third and fourth everyone else–excellent drawing. I’ve heard of him (I think my daughter’s choral group may have performed something…does he write choral music?). Anyway, I’ll check him out. (K.)
