___GRAPHIC ARTS___ > DRAWINGS

Working in the film industry for five years was either energetic, tediously boring or a combination of both during the productions. I always had a pencil and sketching pad close at hand just to pass the time. The energy in this doodle reflects the feeling I transferred on paper during takes when we were indirectly involved in the activities. This particular sketch was one of a series of drawings while working on the film, "They Shoot Horses, Don't They." Sometimes, while doodling Sidney Pollack, the director, would look over my shoulder to see the progress of my drawings. He mentioned at times he would adopt some of my images and ideas while composing his scenes. Like a visionary piggy backing from an alterative perspective. Eventually some sketches were reproduced as oil paintings. "Busy minds" frequently create theaters of profound ingenious imaginations! This particular doodle was the inspiration for the follow painting. rvmann.com/artwork/2352121_Dream_Factor?
