Goodbye San Fran

I have just waddled back to the hotel after eating more than than an Norwegian walrus at HerringFest.
Tonight is my last night in the United States and I really have had a jolly time indeed.
I am pleased to say that with the exception of visiting The Cartoon Museum (which had a bunch of terrific stuff including some Robert Crumb, Maurice Sendak, Edward Gorey and other great illustrators) I have managed to do no touristy things whatsoever.
In fact I have done very little more than eat and drink and make much merriment.
Some folks have asked me if I have documented my trips in illustration for and I have to say I haven't.
I don't use a sketchbook in daily use, never mind when I am on holidays.
I'm an observer and not a documentor (or some other high fallutin' shit that gives me an excuse).
Anyway - toodle oo!

II completely sympathize with the notion that recording the "external space" in a sketch book is a gigantic waste of time...As useless as the famous "Five Minutes Pose" of life drawing.
You are better served by a digital camera. Drawing your "Internal Space" says more about the world than any sketch of people in a farmer's market will ever do.

I have only recently bought a digital camera and as I am not used to taking it with me I keep leaving it behind.
I do like taking pictures though.

As it happens Belinha I am bit so far away as I'm on my way to the UK.
You are welcome to the prize for most stupid comment but you'd have to wrestle it away from the lovely Alina Chau first.
