I love drawing women!

Hope this is not too racy (laughs). I used to always carry around a blank sketchbook with me when I was in high school. I doodled in it in class when I was supposed to be taking notes. My wife always teases me that I like to draw curvy women, sometimes she even makes me tone it down. I tell her “amor, I’m drawing you” and then she gives me her blessing. This is a drawing I did in high school in my sketchbook. Guess I was bored in that class whatever it was! The drawing was inspired by an iron on t-shirt design I had.

Nowadays people call it a journal. But the mantastic term is SKETCHBOOK, ok? This started in pencil, then I went over it with Pentel markers. In case you are wondering, no I was never in a gang. I did have a 48 Chevy bomb and I was in a car club called The Untouchables here in Phoenix, but that was after high school. We all fixed up our cars and we lived to drive them up and down Central Avenue to show them off on weekends. That was in the mid to late 1980s. I don’t think they let you do that anymore. We used to chauffer quinceneras and weddings for our friends and families, and they always let us crash the reception. Ah, those were the days…
