The Plumbing Notebooks
Starting in the late 1990s, Jennings carried a small notebook in the back pocket of his jeans and would sketch in it while waiting for plumbing inspectors, sitting at the breakfast table or riding the subway to a job site. This is a random sampling of his drawings, some of which serve as “sketches” for scenes he later filmed. Several sketches below, for example, relate to Jennings’ film, “Close Quarters.”
