Note: I am writing a story/journal that I don’t want to show before it is published in full. These are some of the illustrated pages in the sketchbook for the story.
Graffiti which used to be on a building in NW Portland (in the Pearl)

I’m a bit of a graffiti fan — not so much the gang marking,
but some of the real artists who do very cool stuff.
For awhile someone had created a funny duck on the outside of our studio.
Sadly, I didn’t photograph it before our landlady painted it out.
