An evolution is the gradual development of something, especially from a simple to a more complex form. This sketchbook showcases drawings from my absolute roots; sketches from the mid-1980s. I love them because they’re raw and, honestly, not very good, but they illustrate the evolution of my drawing skillsespecially the way I was deciding how to sign my art. They are sketches of the things I loved as a teenager growing up in the 80s: BMX, surfing, skateboarding, Ferraris, karate, motocross, and music. Don’t ask for an explanation of the exaggerated cheekbone on most of the charactersat least it’s distinctive!
