I finally got a copy of "Syllabus" by Lynda Barry. It had been on my wish list since I first saw it. So I am playing around with some of the exercises in the book.
This page of characters is based on the "Drawing Jam" exercise from pages 108-113. I only wish I had a room full of people who wanted to do a drawing jam with me ...but I don't, so I had a solo "Drawing Jam".
I went to a couple of internet sites to generate some random occupations/characters.
Here is a good generator for occupations:
Each character was drawn quickly with a non-photo blue pencil. I came back later and inked them in with a black Flair pen.
I have also been doing "Daily Diary" pages in my composition book ... I'm hoping that I will get myself into the habit of drawing every day (like I did when I was younger).

PS: I love the stamped flowers ... but I am now suffering with an "art injury" - a horrible pain in my shoulder and upper arm, most likely caused by the repetitive stamping motion.
