Sometimes the only drawing I get to do in a day is through doodling. One of the best times to doodle is while I'm on the phone. I do not have a cell phone, so I am very stationary when I am on the phone and unlike some other people I know, I can't work while I'm on the phone, but, I can doodle. 

These are small drawings that often are very figurative in that there are always bodies/people in these drawings. These are the shapes that naturally come out. I'm not thinking so much about it all because I am supposed to be listening to the person at the other end of the wire.

I always think that these drawings are being influenced by the person I am talking to and each is somehow specific to that person. I have yet to compile the drawings I've done to go with the same person, but that day will come. I've been doing this for years now and it's a whole world unto itself.

Waiting for a Breath Grenades show to start - Winnipeg - Ellice Theatre - 11.08.20

Believe it or not. Automatic people. My doodles have changed over the years. Most all the time now, my waiting-breath doodles and phone doodles become people or they are about people. It's a pattern that grew over time. You can even say that they evolved over time to where they just come out this way. And no two people are alike. Who are they and what they are doing will be discussed in further notes.
