Around the House

We've decided to sell our house in New Orleans and move into a smaller, more manageable house in the same neighborhood. The best thing about this new place we'll be moving into? We're renting it. This means we will no longer have to deal with all the headaches that come with owning a charming old house that sits on a swamp and is subjected to punishing weather all year round while being attacked by insects the size of small dogs. Take that, American dream!

As we prepare to leave our humble abode, I've been running around trying to get in as many drawings as I can. I suspect the new owners might have mixed feelings about my spending the morning drawing the kitchen cabinets once we are no longer living here.


  1. I love your sketches! I feel like I've been stuck in stick figure land every time I try to draw something. It's so nice to see someone that has good eye-pencil coordination. :)

  2. Alex, selling your house and renting is the best idea! I went through Katrina on the Gulf Coast, and now I live in Arizona (where there are no hurricanes), though I had to give my home back to the bank to leave town. Renting is the norm in Europe - for good, socialist reasons. Down with the bourgeois idea of the necessity and advantages of home ownership!
    (PS - Love the sketchbooks. I teach drawing, and my students are going to be looking at your site next semester.)
