Hmm..It’s probably been two weeks since I picked up a pencil and drew something. At least if feels that way! I’ve been so busy planning classes and working that I haven’t made anything in a while! I tried to get back into it today for a little while and I found it extremely difficult!! Sometimes when this happens I like to go through my old sketchbooks and take a look at things I’ve doodled in the past, and see if there are any interesting ideas to be expanded. Here’s a few things that I found laying around, plus a few attempts at sketching today.

I think that when I’m sketching it takes me a while to get back into that state of mind where I need to be to get really creative….it’s almost like I have to loosen up, and forget about why I’m doing what I’m doing, or what I should be doing and just feel my way out with the pencil. That’s usually when the good things start to flow….just like writing I guess! Man I really feel like I’m in a funk at the moment! I guess I shouldn’t have neglected my sketchbook for so long!! Now I’m paying!! Hope everyone is off to a really good Wednesday!!! Adios for now!

  1. I know what you mean. I can only go a few days without drawing or painting and I really miss it. If I only have a little bit of time, I like to paint on primed baseball cards. They’re very small and I get a wallet-sized burst of art at the end.

  2. I like the wolf! This is why I always carry a pocket sketchbook with me, plus my tried-and-true fountain pen. At the end of the day, and page with something is better than nothing at all. The key to having a pocket sketchbook is to not have any pressure on what you put into it; there are no good or bad drawings, just drawings. Ideally, it’s a sketchbook for planting seeds instead of oak trees. Even the most minute sketch or drawing of even the simplest of subject matters becomes that much more pronounced on a 4″x6″ or 3.5″x5″ page (and at only a couple of bucks a book, it’s paper you don’t feel bad about burning through!)
