Jack Tea in Europe

Here are some pages from Jack’s recent travel sketchbook. He drew them with  Uniball and Sharpie with occasional hits of watercolor in a big Moleskine. He also enjoys the use of salty language and occasional nudity. Oh, and he had a broken arm.

  1. Thanks for sharing Jack’s version of the trip with us, as well as yours earlier. It’s fun to see the differences and similarities in style, attitude, perspective, sense of humour. Jack’s self-criticism is entertaining, my favorite line being “weak lines make a weak drawing; boldness spruces shit up”, although I suppose this is more insight than self-criticism.

  2. How great he is, your son Jack! And how lucky, to have you as his father!! What a great childhood, to have been inspired to draw in journals- looking at the world- expressing his thought on the lack of mexican food in Paris and other important subjects :) I really enjoyed looking at his expressive art. Thank you so much for sharing your fabolous journaling with us!!!

  3. I love Jack’s lines, the bold juxtaposed with the fine lines…so cool! The salty language peppered throughout adds character. Love all the architecture! Jack, you are awesome! What kind of sketchbook did you use, that the sharpie didn’t bleed through the page?

  4. And here from Rotterdam, Europe, a comment on your drawings…..thank you for been inspierd by you and your dad. I started just drawing on the 17 july…and can’t stop any more.
    Next visit …don’t forget Rotterdam!!! Sorry for my englisch.

  5. Terrific, very talented son you have there! I recently saw a video he made. It featured you eating and sketching breakfast. I think I saw that on Tumbler. Great stuff..the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree :D
