I draw and paint to illustrate the books I write
and in sketchbooks when I travel to faraway places.
In recent years I’ve made my own sketchbooks.
Why do I do this? And how do I do it?
How do I decide what to draw--and which pens and pencils to draw with?
This book aims to answer these questions and others.
It’s also the story of my life.
