My Week In Marlborough

by David Colarusso - June 13th, 2012

I’ve been out in Marlborough this week for training at the Best Western. Our days have been packed full of classes on the Fifth Amendment, addiction, car stops, and field sobriety testing. It’s a reunion of sorts for the attorneys who started at CPCS back in October of 2011, and I’ve been happy to reconnect with my training cohort, including a few classmates from BU. Of course, when faced with day-long training sessions, it’s important to develop strategies to help take everything in. I happen to be a big doodler, and there’s at least some evidence to suggest this is a good thing. Luckily, the Best Western provides us with fresh note pads everyday.

Anywho, one of my old classmates, Dave from BU, started things off by handing me a still life he drew of his sun glasses. This prompted me to capture the essence of the candy bowl and water pitcher on our table (see below). He then asked for a drawing of himself, and the flood gates opened. A fellow table-mate, Charu, suggested that I share the doodles somehow, hence this posting. Actually, she suggested that I share all of this week’s doodles, but I decided against it as the majority of Monday and Tuesday’s doodles were variations on George Washington riding atop a bald eagle while battling robots. Trust me; It’s a thing (read through to the bottom). I consider the Washington image a work in progress. So I’m not ready to share it yet, but don’t worry, its time will come. [Update: It’s here.]

This was my original still life reply to Dave’s sun glasses, picturing bits of Celeste and Dave. The glass to the right of Dave’s thermos was filled with some gunky “smoothy residue,” hence the odd splotches.

My apologies to Adrian (pictured above). This isn’t the best likeness. However, the eye patch makes it haRRRRRRd. “Yes, I wear an eye patch, and I’m interested in hearing any original pirate jokes.”

    […] last week’s doodles gave birth to this. For an explanation, and a bigger version, click here or the image […]

    You really make it seem really easy with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something
    that I feel I’d never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely
    large for me. I’m having a look ahead on your subsequent put up, I’ll attempt to get the dangle of it!
