Here it is 2008 already. I finished up my drawings in the moleskine accordian fold sketchbook. I have a collection of word stamps and used some of the words as ideas to start drawings. Then the ideas come from the imagination and the world around me. This is the year of the rat according to the Chinese calendar. The rat is actually a good creature, industrious and clever. And even numbered years should be prosperous and relatively calm. Let’s hope that will hold true for 2008.
