Sketching while I work

Here's a sampling of pages from a notepad that I've been sketching on over the past few weeks at work. It was a seasonal gig before I started a teaching job in January, and I was basically answering customer service calls for people who had defective or damaged toys. Exciting stuff. Even though it isn't an art related job at least I wasn't breaking my back like I was a few months ago.

The good thing about this job (compared to previous jobs) is that I was able to draw during and inbetween calls, which helped me to retain my sanity when very angry people called. I hope you get a kick out of these sketches :D

P.S. One of these pages is not like the other...I was drawing on this great paper that my girlfriend got from work that is just lovely for drawing on. I use it all the time when I'm at home in front of my computer (which hasn't been very often lately).

Rob - Thanks! Whenever I draw on lined paper I always figure that I won't end up keeping the drawings, so I end up drawing better because I'm not worried about keeping them! Ha!

Avi - Whoa! "phenomenal"?! High praise coming from someone as adept at the ol' pencil and paper game! Thank you! How's work going? We should chat soon!

I'm liking what i see. You can see some confidence building up in some of those sketches.

Just added your blog to my Google Reader feed so I can keep up to date with your stuff. I've got a art blog going on blogspot now, so that should be good.
