Memory Trigger


This is a page from the sketchbook that I take on every vacation. I've had the book for 10 years. It starts with drawings from my first trip to Thailand. This particular sketch is of an perfect evening at Old Man's in Baja Sur. That backlit green wall with a finger leaving a trail gets me every time. If you blow the drawing up, you can see a tiny piece of cran d' ache (fancy crayon) that makes his calf look perfect, like the evening light is just barely reflecting through the wave and onto it.

Don't need no fancy crayon to see the beauty in that sketch.
