I read in a sociology book that teenagers will usually doodle their names in notebooks over and over. It's meant to be a subconscious way of trying to figure out their identity. One of my SVA teachers, Thomas Woodruff, used to doodle entire alphabets in different fonts while talking on the phone. Andy likes to draw Batman when he is thinking about something, and it seems that I, oh yes, have an obsession with vintage shoes.
When I'm working on comic book pages for Pirates (I know I don't talk about that project as much as I should, but I don't want to give away any spoilers before it's release!) I often get stuck trying to decide on a shot or angle for a particular panel. As I think about it, I'm sketching unrelated stuff on the side.
Here are my doodles while trying to work out other visual problems :
I finally got Photoshop CS3! ♥
My clients were starting to think I wound up my computer

In other news ...
I was struck by a new Dior advertisement recently, found while walking through Copley. I'm not really into high-fashion, but I am into old movies, and I was thought I was doing a Lauren Bacall double-take, but instead it was 17 year old Karlie Kloss
Way to go, Dior, going all "To Have and Have Not" on us! (below // Lauren Bacall is 19 here)
Bacall - original cool
Lauren Bacall fell in love with Humphrey Bogart on the set of this movie, and quite literally, you can actually watch two people growing smitten with each other! Quelle romantique!
