sheep drawings

Everybody is very keen to hear how this fascination with portrait drawings of sheep began.. Let’s just say: Haruki Murakami was a big inspiration. Have your read his book: “A Wild Sheep Chase”? It somehow formed the literary soundtrack for my second journey to India. Part surreal, part real.

Sometimes I sit and work / Draw in Cafés

  I have several commissions to finish drawings for and am running a little behind schedule. I blame the unconventional life for this. We lived in a wild house in Oakland for some time, with a landlord and landlady who were full of life while we were slumped, lacking sleep and therefor energy.
