Earth Spirit (Wayne Ferrebee, 2016, color pencil and ink)
Here are some more little sketches from my little moleskine sketchbook. The first one is probably my favorite–it shows an angry Tibetan protective spirit surging up from the fecund Earth. Various actinomycetes and spores dance within the rainbow between his hands. The worms, slime mold, and fungi cavort on the ground he springs from.

Industry (Wayne Ferrebee, 2016, color pencil and ink)
Art and Industry are self explanatory–though I wish I had drawn “Art” more beautifully and I wish i had worked harder on “Industry” (particularly that unhappy pig).
NJ Freeway (Wayne Ferrebee, 2016, color pencil and ink)
This is a quick pencil sketch of the freeway in New Jersey which leads to the Lincoln Tunnel. I went out to visit friends in Montclair and had a million problems with the buses. On the way back, I was sitting right behind the driver and looking out the huge picture window he looks through. I could see a whole constellation of cars rushing along ahead of us into the city. I wish this sketch gave a full impression of the scene–but there are a lot of things going on on New Jersey’s highways and they happen pretty fast.
Characters in Space (Wayne Ferrebee, 2016, color pencil and ink)
This is a study for a giant Sumerian space flounder I am drawing in my studio. There is not enough space art, so I am trying to draw more in 2016 (more space art and more in general). Ironically I like the simplified flounder the least of all in this picture, but the simplified mammalian dolphin is ok. As always, thanks for looking and let me know what you think!
