Scratchboard City Revisited

 December 9, 2020

   I have a few friends—okay, more than a few—who harrangue me constantly about my scratchboards. They invariably implore me to, "Quit wasting your time on gouache and do what you do best."


Daily Scratchboard Whip Out:
"Raymond Loves Mules, It's In The Eyes"

   Here's one in progress:

   Okay, one more for old scratch sake.

"Curly Bill by Fly"

"When I travel, I always go to the local museums, because that's where you find something different. They always have famous paintings, but there will be something interesting, too, about local culture, and that's where I get my ideas from."

—John-Paul Gaultier, French "enfant terrible" fashion designer
