Was a pleasure to have visitors from West Bengal, even if somewhat of a surprise!


Jumping to Conclusions

Sometime all it takes is a little stretch, going the extra mile. Leaving the comfort  zone by doing the same thing – a little differently.

Deciding that the time has come for something extraordinary. Walking backwards and mixing it up a bit. Waking up on the wrong side of the bed—on purpose, then rising to the challenge.

Never looking back in regret, thinking, “I coulda had class. I coulda  been a contender. I coulda been somebody, instead of a bum, which is what I am.”

By doing this every day everyday becomes a little more worthwhile. Life stays interesting – in a good way.

There’s no rhyme or reason to the way I structure Thinkering. Usually chaos reigns supreme, and I follow the whim of the moment. I may come up with a gag or an idea, or an urge to draw something specific.

Lunching in downtown Toronto the other day I was watching the CN Tower (tallest freestanding structure in the Western Hemisphere) looming overhead. I made some napkin sketches and decided I wanted to render the tower. Over the years I’ve created many architectural renderings for design firms, builders and property owners.

So I sketched the CN Tower this morning and came up with the idea as the art was taking shape.
