Changing habits, repetition and breaking rules.

Changing habits in progress: noticed today as I was feeling lonely, and after putting my phone down, I had a strong hankering for a pen and sketchbook. Really strong. This is after 4 consecutive days of drawing. I want to keep this going!

Perfectionism doesn’t die easily.

If at all. Lots of thinking during my last day at the beach. Not all of it on paper yet, though.

All DONE!

Woo hoo! I am finally finished my Sketchbook Project 2013, and it (along with my kids’ sketchbooks) will be mailed off today, just one day ahead of deadline. Here are the rest of my pages, along with my favorite pages from the kids’ books! To see the rest of my sketchbook, click here or here!

Sketchbook Project 2013 Update (my 300th post, ever!)

For other Sketchbook Project posts, click here.

The end is so close! I am almost done, and I would love to finish this before Christmas so I don’t even have to think about it in January! The Sketchbook Project is now a more flexible thing to join – you can sign up at anytime, and take your time finishing your book. The deadline only comes in if you sign up for a tour. It must be an easier way for them to organize it, but I have to admit, the grandiose-project feeling is a bit lost now for me. I haven’t decided if I will continue with it, yet. Are you more inclined to try it, now that the pressure is off? I guess I work better with a little bit of pressure!

Here are the next 5 spreads in my book!

Sketchbook Project Update

Three of my Sketchbook Project books have been digitized! You can see them here:
Sketchbook Project 2011
Sketchbook Project 2012
Sketchbook Project Limited Edition

We are going to visit the sketchbooks at the Brooklyn Art Library again this year. Looking forward to it! I have a list of sketchbooks to check out, and I will take out my own to give them some lovin’ (and make sure the pages aren’t sticking together!).

I’m busy finishing the second half of my Sketchbook Project 2013, which isn’t due until January. Here’s what I have so far:

Uptight Chains

The next spread in my Sketchbook Project, Limited Edition. I really like the chains, and I totally meant to do more in this book, but it just didn’t happen. As for the doodling comment, I was definitely fighting my gremlin that day. I would really like to develop some new doodling patterns, designs, techniques, etc. I guess the only way for that to happen is to keep drawing and hope that some pop out.

Two more sleeps until I leave for the Makerie! I can’t wait. I will be posting about it when I return!
