The Can – my ’96 sketchbook pt. 2 (update 11/30/06)

In 1996, I graduated highschool, lived a crazy summer, then went off
entered the American Academy of Art in Chicago.
“The Can” was my first hardbound sketchbook. It’s initial purpose
was for class, to keep as a journal and for drawing exercises.
I brought my sketchbook everywhere. To friends’ houses, concerts,
coffee shops, etc. Everytime I’d bring it, everyone would ask to see
it. So, in time it went from having a school/work responsibilty to a
way to keep my friends entertained. I swear, this shit was much
funnier back in the day.
Anyway, I plan posting every page in this book and subsequent
volumes. I think there’s about 11…
So, 18 year old college student Jose gee. Please don’t be too harsh…
Dedicated to 96- Chuck D, Scott R, Carl W, Jamie R, Adam P,

My first hardbound sketchbook, complete w/ visitor’s pass…

I’ll most likely edit this post with an update once I get more photos.
It’s strange looking at these live art paintings under normal light.
Most spots are dark with colored lights, so it alters the colors you
work with.

Don’t have any more Live art shows booked until late December,
though I’m sure one or two will come up between now and then. I’ll
keep you posted.
plus you could always check my profile for dates, etc..

In other news, , Jim Mahfood’s website, has
finally been updated. I know Jim’s been working on getting this up
since last year, and after a few setbacks it’s good to go. I did the
coloring for all his webpage images (and I colored a few illustrations
here and there). Check it out, leave Jim some love and let me know
what you think! And be sure to give props to Jen for her web

inspired by the Isleys….

Stay warm, Chicago!
