wasting my time

i drew this in november 2004 in kingston. i really like to draw on newsprint, especially with ballpoint pens. the ink sinks in well. it gets old, wrinckled and changes colours just like me.

drawing on newsprint takes me back to my elementary school days. our monthly review tests were printed on that kind of paper and our teachers encouraged us to draw on the back our papers if we had time left over. the drawings always turned out great because we weren’t trying hard to create art but to have fun and kill time. i think that’s how you can free your mind.
