Jot it down...

It has always been said, that you never know when inspiration will strike.  That is so true for me.  And, inspiration always seems to strike me when I don't have my trusty Moleskin--at lunch or dinner.  So what do you do?  What many a great architect, artist, or writer would do--grab a napkin.  In fact, I think there is a book out there with images of great works that began on a napkin or drink coaster.  And, there really is something special about drawing on napkins.  I love the way the ink bleeds into the thin paper--art in itself.  
I recently came across an old notebook that had some old "rough" drafts on napkins from past projects--and not so past projects.  Oh, and it seems I do eat at What-a-burger way too much, based on the napkins I found.....
