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,
