This was sketched on a manila folder, while flying on a plane, with a beer in the other hand. 
Mantle in my bedroom.
Ok, this one looks too good. That’s because I did it on my drawing board.
Corbel lamp.
This was sketched on a paper tablecloth at a dive bar while on the way home from Brimfield in 1990.
My kitchen pantry.

Same dive bar...same paper tablecloth.
Have you noticed that a lot of my drawings are on a 45 degree angle...I wonder why...drinkin at a dive bar?!?!
Display in my home furnishings store.
This was sketched at an elementary school play…my kid wasn’t in it! And it was years ago so I’m immune from prosecution.  
Floor lamp.

I should not be admitting to this, but I sketched the shelf while bored out of my mind at an architectural seminar. In my defense, the lecture was about different types of grout.
The photo was shot in my home store but the piece was intended to be a kitchen shelving unit. The bottom rail is for a towel.

Prior to building most of my creations, I’ll do a sketch. When I visualize a concept I need to draw it before the thought is lost forever and my mind moves onto the next idea, which could be in a few seconds. I’ve sketched on everything from tablecloths and napkins to a steamed up bathroom mirror and the palm of my hand. Once, I sketched a lamp in the dirt with a stick and then shot a photo of it with my phone. Ya gotta do what ya gotta do when there’s no pen and paper around. With hundreds of drawings to choose from I’ve compiled six (that's all I have room for) with their corresponding finished creations. Let me know if you enjoy this eclectic post and I’ll do it again sometime.

I havent done anything sexual really with another person. The area that I live in isnt really the appropriate place for me to explore my sexuality comfortably. I am excited about the idea of making friends and learning about the motivations and nuances of the perspective of those outside of the bubble I have been brought up in. My biggest driving point in life is to explore the depths of humanity and to understand the human condition and what it means. I am a very existential person.

JunkArchitect writes: Thanks, MakinItHappen! I remember so many unnecessary things, so vividly too. Each occurrence is like a photo in my mind that I can refer back to. Random circumstances lead to ideas and concepts, sometimes years later.
Absorb all that is good!

Thanks again everyone.

MakinItHappen writes: You are so creative and so much fun! I think it's hilarious that you know where you were when you made all those drawings (with beer in hand). Grout seminar? Hey, better drawing than snoozing. The speaker probably thought you were taking copious notes!

G writes: Jim, I remember two years ago when I came across your creations on Facebook, they literally took my breath away. It's great for you to let us in on your creative process. The napkins, a stick drawing idea in the dirt, it shows when an idea gotta do...what you gotta do! I am more convinced than ever, that if a customer came to you and described a dream, you could create it, because you are the builder of dreams!
Build On, Jim Healy! We all eagerly await your next creation...!

I guess I can not comment on my iPad. I love your drawings so much I got up out of the comfy chair to comment. Your talent is just more than amazing! I keep wishing you would publish that book! But of course I want a signed copy! :-). From start to finish your creative juices are Over-flowing.

Keep those wonderful drawings coming!

JunkArchitect writes: Visualizing new concepts, sketching, designing and building have been the focus of my life since I was three years old. That's the reason I became an architect. There's a photo of me on Facebook when I was 9 months old banging away with a hammer and as happy as I could possibly be. I REALLY appreciate all the positive comments coming from such a talented group of people. This junk thing is not a fad but has been my life for the past fifty years.

Thanks again for ALL your encouragement!

Build on...!

I have always loved seeing them when you have included them in the posts before. But this is a real showcase of your art and your ability to see something in your mind and then bring it to life. AND you can even see the exact colors too! This is kinda scary-cool.
