Everyday drawings

I had 9 pages left in a sketchbook on January 1, so I gave myself the very little goal of filling one a day: a comet seen through binoculars from a mountain side at 6am New Year's day, gorp, my namesake statue at Calabria Cafe, yet another evening spent watching the Canucks, a bit of work on the beer-illustrator career, the paper glacier in my office, a challenging pollarded willow, my pre-hockey dietary regime of a chocolate-chip muffin, and an elfin stump with a snow cap up the mountain.  As Annie Dillard said, "How we spend our days is of course how we spend our lives." The least we can do is pay attention.
