Sketch sketch sketch. Learn learn learn.
I saw the sun come up today,
As I stood on the corner,
Waiting for the bus,
That I already missed.
Things I Liked To Draw in 2013.
Hello everyone in Internet-land! What a year of sketch 2013 was. I started the year knowing I wanted to draw more. I had a ballpoint pen, a #2 pencil, a free mini-sketchbook, and essentially no idea how to do that. But I did! I managed to sketch something every day of 2013, whether it was a q-tip drawn from memory, Vin Diesel in a Hello Kitty electric car, or a strange little man with no midsection who only exists in my head.
Sure, it MAY have taken, 412 posts, five sketchbooks, but I think I actually managed to learn a few things. Mostly about what I like to draw and what different ways I like to see the world. And a little bit about different fun art tools. (Not that there’s anything wrong with ballpoint pen.) But also (and maybe most importantly) I got practice in trying new things, and *letting* myself try new things and just seeing what happens.
And so I say farewell to the sketch-a-day project. It was a good thing, and now I’m hoping that adding a little flexibility will lead to some interesting long-term projects. We’ll see!
Thanks to everyone for watching this space and these sketches. Your eyeballs are my friends!
(Now that I think of it, doing a sketch a day for a year was a strange decision to make. I love it.)
