Night owl sketch

I’m an incessant night owl. I often lie in bed doodling whilst everyone is slumbering peacefully. Ah, the plight of the restless mind. I’ve been this way since I was in high school. My brain just won’t turn off the lights. So many things racing within, so much to think about, to try and figure out. What is it? Why is this? So, alas, I do what I’ve always done… I draw, and dream… a dream within… or without… a dream. – David

Charles Dickens

WARNING: VERBOSELY WAXING POETIC: The black and white version (the strip runs in black and white in some newspapers) of my author soulmate, Charles Dickens, from a recent strip. I really liked how the black and white turned out. Feels kind of authentic. Channeling perhaps (in my dreams) that elusive and indefatigably visual spirit that hovers ever so unobtrusively around Dickens’ written word, and one of my artistic heroes… Hablot Knight Browne, known as “Phiz” to Dickens’ “Boz.”- David
