illustrated journaling

Last week I mentioned my desire to freeze time in sketches. As much as I want to do this, Edgar is much better at actually making it happen: drawing daily, without fail, in his journal.

Here's is a tiny portion of the entries from the last few weeks...

Pokey and Reilly's thoughts on our new furniture:


Discussions between Max and my mom:


And working late, like tonight:
