Don't hate me because I'm beautiful.
Hate me because I can't finish
my lastest sketchbook.
And it ain't gonna wind up anytime soon--
It's not even half full!
Speaking of half full,
here's one of the few sketchbooks
that I never finished.
This book ran from
July 28, 1996
sometime in 1998.
It most likely got abandoned
because I got busy making the
Kids Next Door pilot.
But I liked where it was going:
Within this tome I found
the certificate for
the first film
I made that got into a festival!
When I got to Ottawa,
I was distraught at the lack
of my two favorite vices at the time:
Here are some early doodles for who would later become
Professor Triple Extra Large:
Here's a very early sketch of

infamous Oakwood Apartments:
Here's the old
fax cover sheet:
And a set-list for one of my favorite
roque and roll bands,
And here's a creepy birthday picture of me at
J.J. Sedelmaier Productions
where I was so generously gifted with a
rare Grouch Marx book, mask and cigar.
And this still makes me giggle:
I feel bad for my latest sketchbook.
I rarely doodle in it because I'm so busy with some
other sooper secret projects.
Hope I can tell you about them soon!
But enough about me--
why aren't you drawing in
