Dad Loves His Work

Work continues on my first book for John Wiley and Sons, Freehand Drawing Renaissance.  It's been a transformational experience.  Most days I'm rising about 3:30am (without an alarm), writing and/or drawing till 8am, walk the dog around the museums, back to the book till mid afternoon, then race to catch up on email, Townscape project work, meetings, errands and whatever else may have fallen through the cracks.  If I'm lucky I'll have dinner with Patti, pass out on the couch about 8pm, and get up to repeat it all the next day.  I couldn't be happier.

Best guess is that the manuscript is at 60% at this writing.  All is due May 21.  Hang in there with me...


  1. What a great analysis of a beautiful sketch. So glad you're happy.

  2. Wish I could get up so early...
