for the last few months i’ve felt pretty energized, creatively speaking
(i’d been reading lynda barry’s syllabus, and i think that gave me quite a bit of fuel and confidence, both)
for the last few weeks my creative juices are feeling lower
i havent been putting out as many strips this month, and for some reason they’ve seemed harder to come by
i can only hope i’m in just a seasonal artistic funk
so this one is from the sketchbook
i’m not sure what to do with little moments like these, since they have dialogue and only feature one panel, which don’t seem to fit the rules i’ve created for myself here
in the meantime you can scroll through all of the ‘steps’ strips here
A quick video tour of a likeness sketcbook I started back in August 2017.
I’m filling it with five minute (approximately) drawings of celebs from photo reference, typically done on their birthday.
Some are loose and recognizable, some are loose and unrecognizable, and some are just stiff and shitty.

colored pencil, pencil, ink
with season1 episode 4 aka episode 3 aka rest in pain
- First mention of the bookhouse boys
- Miguel ferrer is so good
- First appearance of Laura Palmer lookalike cousin Madeline
- first appearance of the soap opera within twin peaks on tv?
Previously on Twin Peaks: The Livedoodles:
3 aka episode 2 aka zen, or the skill to catch a killer
2 aka episode 1 aka traces to nowhere
1 pilot aka northwest passage
Heard the 2017 twin peaks is so good that I’m going back to watch the original so I can catch up.
Season 1. Episode 1.
Going to do this for every episode.
Will be interesting to see if I can hone in likenesses over the course of the show.
And draw more than faces.
Notes I noted while watching:
- Lynch so careful to have a logging truck go in the frame whenever possible.
- Recurring music makes it so dreamlike.
- Cooper so naive and childlike at times.
- So that’s where the phrase ‘fire walk with me’ comes from.
- I wonder if there even is a Diane.
- “When a man’s sweetheart is in the pen for manslaughter the word parole has a nasty ring to it.”
- “Who is the lady with the log?” “We refer to her as log lady.”
- Didn’t realize the sheriff’s name was Harry S Truman until I read the episode 1 entry at Wikipedia.
