My brother Doug gave me a sketchbook for Christmas and not just any sketchbook, mind you… a MOLESKINE watercolor sketchbook… the legendary notebook of Hemingway, Picasso and Chatwin. With names like that attached to this elegant little journals history, it’s a pretty intimidating thing to try to put a picture into it. (I don’t know who the Chatwin fellow is, but I’m sure he is very intimidating, too). Last night, thanks in large part to the current television writers strike, I found myself in my studio and decided to go for it. The Moleskine… legendary notebook of Hemingway, Picasso, and now, BrotherJones.
