Sketches of Sound 18: Scott Faulkner

Since April 2010, has hosted a monthly project called “Sketches of Sound,” in which illustrators, most of them comics artists, are invited to draw a sound-related object. I post the drawing as the background of my Twitter account,, and then share a bit of information about the illustrator back on Call it “curating Twitter.”

The 18th entry features this drawing by Scott Faulkner. A lifelong resident of Washington State, Faulkner graduated from the Evergreen State College in Olympia, where he contributed his first published comics to the student newspaper. There he also discovered the work of some of his cartooning heroes, Matt Groening, Lynda Barry, and Charles Burns, and moved to Seattle to join the vibrant ’90s alternative comics scene. Today, he works with the cartoonist collective The Bureau of Drawers, and more of his work can be seen at his website,

The previous “Sketches of Sound” contributors were, in alphabetical order, Jesse Baggs, Brian Biggs, Leela Corman, Warren Craghead III, Owen Freeman, S.L. Gallant, Brian Hagen, Dylan Horrocks, Megan Kelso, Minty Lewis, Natalia Ludmila, Darko Macan, Caesar Meadows, Justin Orr, Hannes Pasqualini, Thorsten Sideb0ard, and Gustavo Alberto Garcia Vaca.
