Sketchcrawling at home

Hey this is fun! A sunday at home, drawing away …

You can see all the drawings from my day here and be sure to check wonderful sketches from all over the world here. As you can see the notorious “Mozzarella the monkey” caught my pen’s attention, it’s so much fun to draw it!!

    So what’s in your to-read stack Enrico?

    (Loving the Venice Chronicles too. Keep at it!)

    Ah, well, now with the better scan of the drawing you can almost see …

    from the top:

    A comic – Corto Maltese by Hugo Pratt (Good stuff !!)

    A novel – Kinshu, Autumn brocade by Teru Miyamoto (I am in the middle of this one)

    A comic – Bardin the Superrealist by MAX (I have mixed feelings about this one, still reading it)

    Another novel – What is the what by Dave Eggers (looking forward to start reading this one, loved all his other books)

    A photography book – The eyes, the ears by Rinko Kawauchi (I love her work, I have 4 or 5 books of hers)

    And at the bottom – I wanna go Home by Hank Ketcham (A fun travel book with lots of nice sketches from around the world, no Dennis in it)

    So … there you have it … :)

    Ah and good to hear you’re liking the Venice Chronicles … it helps me get my ass in gear to hear that …
    more pages are on the way … :)

    Enrico, thanks for sharing all these. I haven’t read any Eggers but I should (It seems like I’ve more about him than anything written by him.) You’ve read Banana Yoshimoto’s books? “Kitchen” was a like reading Salinger’s Franny and Zooey for the first time. Both of these books got lobbed into my skull, smashed into a thousand marbles and then rattled, rattled, rattled.

    Anyway, thanks for the list. It’s always interesting to me to see what inspires others. Your Sketchcrawl work keeps me checking in and challenges me to be creative and present even in those moments when it appears that nothing is happening. Even the silence vibrates when pen hits paper during the walk down an empty backroad.

    Well that … and I love the monkey.

    Take care amigo,

    Yes I am an avid reader of Banana Yoshimoto’s books, in fact Teru Miyamoto was recommended to me because of that … there are some similar themes with Yoshimoto’s work.
    I haven’t read Salinger, but I will look it up for sure !

    And yes you’re totally right about how fascinating it is to hear what people with similar interests read and enjoy … I should start a thread just to hear people’s recommendations … :)

    By the way another author I don’t miss a book from is Murakami … I absolutely loved his latest novel, Kafka on the shore …
