For whatever reason or combination of reasons, I am completely blocked creatively. I can’t draw. I can’t paint. I can’t focus my thoughts at all. A friend suggested that I try doing little 15 minute sketches each day to try to recover. Even these are miserable to try to do. I feel like I’ve had far too much caffeine and can barely sit still.

Perhaps you can find one of your babies here, sacrificed for my need for source photos. I apologize for not being able to capture their true natures. I’m trying, though. I’m really trying.

At least she didn’t draw you looking like a teddy bear!


It’s hard to believe but a lot of schools are starting back to class already. Make sure your student stands out in one of these fine offerings. There are shirts, sweaters, ties and vests for the young man or young lady who wants to show they are serious about their future success.

All these and more are available from my shop at L Bowman Studios.
