my car has become a portable studio. because we zip back & forth to KC so much i've started journaling on 5"x7" cards (chopped up sheets of 110 lb cover) instead of lugging my journals and other art baggage with me. the cards are small so they keep me focused on one thought or one moment, which is all i usually have time for anyway. i paint or ink the backgrounds at home, toss a stack in the car with a black pen, and off we go. note to kansas city drivers: i don't draw while i'm driving. just at stoplights.
