    sketchbook.stolen.

    Awesome.

    I was at a coffee shop today, after hitting the comic book store. Skecthing away. I get up to go get another drink, I come back and my sketchbook is gone.

    I can't believe some hippy would actually steal something like this, it's like stealing a fucking photo album.. I'm at the point now where I'm so angry that I am entirely calm. This leaves only 2 months with new book to bring to Montreal.

    I wish a billion papercuts on this fruitcake.

    Awesome.

    Those hippy bastards! You should put a "Reward Offered" flyer up in the coffee shop. Then, when the butthole returns it, you can give him a "reward" of pure kung fu to the face!

    Oh damn... I can only imagine the angst/rage/confusion/distress. And don't sweat it too much man, 2 months is plenty of time for a new book. Just keep your head up and keep plugging at it. Cheers and goodluck!

    i'm sorry bro- that sucks hard. i thought i lost my book bag once and i was freaking out not because i thought i had lost hundreds of dollars worth of textbooks in it, but because i thought i lost my 10 dollar sketchbook.

    i can't even imagine how angry/sad you must have been.

    2 months? That's no time to fill in like, over 400 pages. I go through 70 sheets (140 pages) in about 3 weeks or so.

    A friend of mine had his sketchbook stolen by his friends, who then drew penises on every single one of his drawings, and put it back in his pack for him to find when he got home.

    Even that is better than losing it completely. I'm *paranoid* about that happening.

    Yeah, I'm shafted, I might see how much time I can get off work, to have more time for this.

    I a friend of mine spent alot of time on a big B&W painting of german soldiers. He was'nt really one of the most skilled in the clas,s but he worked incredibly hard on the painting, and it actually turned out marvellously. Someone with no tact decided that is was a pro nazi pic and they wrote, in red paint "^%$# nazis". When my buddy found out who it was, he literally forced him to lick some of the paint off the picture, now that's what I call street justice.

    I was on a high stepladder working on a mural years ago and didn't realize that the group of kids watching me work actually stole my sketchbook while I wasn't looking. So not only did I lose the sketchbook, I lost my 'blueprints' for the mural!
    So yeah, I feel your pain, anger, and frustration..... but at the same time, you have to admit it's kind of flattering..... ? Err... maybe not.
