I liked sketching and did it almost compulsively (I drew the middle sketch when I should have been taking notes). And, of course, since I had artistic ambitions, I was interested in honing my skill. "Craft" was a word that came up sometimes from my teachers, I think. "Process" was a very trendy word at that time. But I didn't like terms like that and was simply interested in drawing better. I was probably dissatisfied with the top drawing; I tended to think outright sketching was too messy. I like the drawing now. One instructor I had -- a really great guy named Eric Loder -- said "never throw out a drawing. You never know how you'll feel about it later." It's a hard rule to follow; Suki chastises me for all the paper I have. But it's a good principle to adhere to as much as possible.
And then, at the bottom, the table where it all started. The Danish coffee table where Richard and I did all our early drawings and comics.
