Sketchbook drawings, November 13-December 3

A selection from almost 200 drawings I've made recently in an 8 1/2 x 11 sketchbook. I took the pictures with my phone as I made them, which accounts for the variation in lighting, contrast, background, etc.

These are simply astounding. What do you do with them exactly? Are you compiling a book? Do you sell them?

Thank you. I have usually not taken my sketchbooks apart (to sell or for any other reason)--though, being spiral-bound, this one would presumably be easier to do so with. I do think I will publish them somewhere, at some point. I do use the ideas in the sketchbook in my larger, "gallery" art, but I also am increasingly thinking of the books themselves as art objects in their own right.

By the way, I began my recent bout of sketchbook-keeping in 2009, after drawing many sketches in copies of "Nautilus" and "Abstract Comics." I liked how those were turning out and wanted to keep exploring that style. So, if you want one of these drawings, try to get me to doodle a copy of one of those books for you... :)
