“Doodles are not about performance; they are somewhere between practice and delving.”
France Belleville-Van Stone, Sketch!: The Non-Artist's Guide to Inspiration, Technique, and Drawing Daily Life

“There is something liberating about sketching on a support that you will not keep, like your paper place mat or on the paper covering the table. It will help you desacralize the drawing and make the moment you put the pen in contact with the paper less solemn. Part of why some of us are so daunted by the mere task of starting a drawing is because we turn it into a task”
France Belleville-Van Stone, Sketch!: The Non-Artist's Guide to Inspiration, Technique, and Drawing Daily Life

“The Douglas Coupland–esque environment in which I work every day does not deter me from laying it down on paper; on the contrary: celebrate dullness, I say.”
