Drawings And Stuff

And other meaningless scribblings

"My scribblings are way more accustomed to words than they are drawings.  Time to time, however, when I'm either inspired or bored or wanting to add a little pizazz to the journals I write, I make feeble attempts to etch something with my hands that represents some sort of visual something.  I think it's ironic that I've found somewhat of a visually artistic more fulfilling experience doing graphic design, but anything truly of artistic merit is always found in what two hands can do rather than skills with computer image manipulation.  I mean, by far.  I love weaving pictures with words, but I can't draw worth beans.  Sometimes I get lucky to where something's halfway eh, and I think I've found some samples okay enough to maybe amuse you."     ---Nick  

Nicholas Grabowsky's Diverse Compendium


We've had this domain (Downwarden.com, which is named after a novel titled "The Downwardens" that Nick still has yet to finish), and we've been on this site since probably 2002. It's had many incarnations over the years, and we're very proud of this user-friendly and responsive modern look that we've had for a few years now with Wordpress. While Nick has been obsessively keeping up with Black Bed Sheet Books, you'll find this site keeping up with him! We deeply appreciate your patronage, fandom, and readership!
