    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.

    dude, that sucks.

    I had my school portfolio stolen during my brief stint at junior college in the early 90's. I'm talking the big black thing with all sorts of anatomical and life drawings, paintings, sketches, the works. I'm still emotionally screwed up from that.

    Get a fake sketchbook and hide a pager in it, and/or have a big beefy friend sit at some other table acting like he doesn't know you while keeping an eye on your stuff. Also bring a baseball bat with a 4 inch nail through it.

    It would rock if someone invented radio controlled beepers you could stick on things. Just a little flat summer+antenna with an unique password it needs to beep. This would be awesome to place on all sorts of stuff. It would be triggered with some sort of mobile phone-like remote.

    What does the US law say about entrapment by civilians btw?
    Jamen jag tror att han skäms, och har gömt sig. Vårt universum det är en av dom otaliga spermasatser som Herren i sin självhärliga ensamhet har runkat fram för å besudla intet.

    Oh man... OUCH!

    I think my head would explode if I ever lost something like that.

    My eighth grade art teacher stole a whole year's worth of my work. She kept everyone's work on file all year long and then told people to come by on the last day of school to pick up their stuff. Showed up and her classroom was locked and barred. Noone got their stuff back. The sad thing is I'm sure she just threw all of it away... what a bitch. that was the last art class I ever took

    this just reminded me that I had a painting stolen from the drying racks in my 2nd year of school. I showed up and it just wasn't there anymore. I hope its current owner is enjoying it, because otherwise it'd just have ended up in my parents basement with all my other school paintings anyhow

    I always lose my sketches, I don't mind I will always make more, but I lost one really good sketch book once. A couple of years of only the best I could spit out, along with a really detailed story with illustration and everything. Like 100 pages and a good 70% into the story...
    Also a partial nude sketch of my wife. She insist the book is still around but I haven't seen it.

    HA! Same thing happened to me. I don't mind now and I'm really curious on where it could be today. Recycled maybe ?
    I also had a sculpture smashed to bits because I *think* the freshmen didn't want to buy fresh clay... Was ready to distribute knuckle sandwishes.

    I walked into my art class the other day to find that someone else had named the painting I was working on! It was my first ever painting too. I flipped out, it pissed me off so bad cause they gave it some political name bashing the President of the US, and no one had ever even told me about it. Now don't get me wrong I'm not defending him, nor do I want this to turn into a big political discussion. If I hadn't noticed it sitting by the door, It'd be sitting in a local art gallery with no connection to me at all(they didnt even bother to put my name).

    Oh and politics I'd like to extend a big fat fuck you from me to you.
    Leave me something at my sketchbook
