Where does the Past Live?

We went and heard Lynda Barry give a great talk last night at the Central Library here in St. Louis. She is one of my all-time favorite cartoonists (I put her in left field of my all-star lineup) and her new book is sort of a writing workshop/workbook that is really beautiful and inspiring. An image/memory exercise she gave was to think of an automobile and what is the first one that comes to mind? Mine is this yellow station wagon we had when I was a kid, the CruiseMobile II (sequel to an earlier blue Station Wagon which I don't remember as vividly). I drew it today in my sketchbook during a boring meeting (watercolor added when I got home).

Water 'N Colour

Here are some pages outta my sketchbook, soaked in saltwater and ballpoint penk ink and cheap watercolor, fresh from Sanibel Island Florida.That last one is an awesome sand-serpent me and my dad built on the beach. I should've painted a person standing next to it (or at least an EGRET) so you could see how big and fearsome and full of seaweed it was.
Speaking of fearsome, here's one of KEVIN H. I just did last night. He was drawing KONA.
