a little sketchy

For my blog night this week I wanted to do something a little different, or at least something I am way overdue. I sat down and filled some sketchbook pages. I started with some quick gesture sketches of my wife and kids as they were sitting or playing around in the living room.

Then I looked around for something else to draw from and we had a framed antique photo of a couple that I am presumably related to. I don’t really know them, as it is quite an old photo, but I know it came from my grandmother’s box of photos. Anyway, this is Mrs. John Holm. She sure was a handsome woman!

Finally, I filled a page with some surreal stream of consciousness type sketching. I’ll leave the interpretation up to you, though I have my own ideas.

I’d love to hear what you think of that sketch. Can you make up a story of the thoughts behind it? Sound off in the comments below.
