I draw rainbows whenever I see them, with my black ink pen. When I have collected enough, I thought I might make a book called Black-and-White Rainbows.— Jason Polan
The most spectacular Jason Polan quotes that are glad to read
I like drawing most everything I see, but sometimes the light will hit something in a certain way that I just cannot capture the thing the way I would like with a drawing, so I think taking a picture might be the way to document what I am seeing better.
One time I covered a wall with 8.5×11 pages of drawings, which made things feel a little bit different in the room.
Sometimes I will draw people and they will move away too quickly for me to finish what I wanted, and it is not enough for me to consider it a drawing of them. I hope I have gotten better at capturing things quicker in a drawing.
I draw in my sleep (dream of drawing) a lot.
I don't think I have ever drawn anything in real life while I was sleeping, though. I do keep a pad near my bed, just in case.
Sometimes when I am drawing outside - when it is cold out it gets difficult (my hand gets slower when it is really cold) because I do not like wearing a glove while drawing, because I cannot feel the paper right.
I made a life-size drawing of King Kong's head which was about eight feet-by- six feet. I tried to measure the head (scaled to other things in the movie I could estimate the size of) that was in the movie in the early '30s, and I liked that I was making something "life-size" that was kind of a fictional thing.
Sometimes I draw with my left hand and I am pretty terrible.
The drawings end up just looking like shakier/inconsistent (worse) versions of my right hand drawings. Sometimes I like drawing with my eyes closed.
Sometimes I can't draw or take a picture of something, though, if the color is a certain way and the only way to see it is to see it in person.
I liked the movie Splash a lot when I was little.
I think we taped it when it was on TV, and then would watch the movie fairly often.
