Sketchbook Saturday


While I was working on my writing chops, I was also doing some art on the side. This pencil drawing was done for the Chicano Studies Dept. of San Diego Mesa College. For those of you with an Aztec/Nahuatl cosmology, the flower has several meanings (the petals are notched tongues, which denotes -- among other things -- poetry). It graced several posters and publications and remains one of my favorites.

This is our spot, just for us. Here, we can chat:  If I’m nearby, I’ll come and visit your club. Otherwise, we can Skype, talk over the phone or email. Sometimes, I’ll send surprises or hold contests.
