Keep Those You Love Close

My drawings may start off as circles and scribbles, but eventually start to take form. – moi

This weekend I listened to this podcast on Pencil Kings featuring Fantasy Artist, Iris Compiet. She shared she challenged herself to draw every day for five years! Her work is amazing and she is now drawing and creating a book of her own drawings.

After nine months, I can tell I’m getting better at this. When I see something in my mind I can draw it out easier compared to before I had a difficult time drawing from my imagination and relied heavily on references.

After trying a couple of mediums I think digital art and polymer clay are my most favorite mediums. Still lots to learn.

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful night!

From Tuesday-Friday I was in Minneapolis, and unable to update my website. I did draw every day though as I brought my sketchbook with me.

I saw some beautiful places while I was away.

I’m more than halfway through my resolution. I’ve been so wrapped up in other interest I am finding less time to dedicate to making full fledged pieces. Most of my work for the past few months has been quick sketches. I am noticing my sketches are faster and faster.

Looking at the goals I hoped to achieve:

  1. Create a piece of art every day in 2017. – CHECK (SO FAR)
  2. Improve my own art and hone my style. -CHECK
  3. Learn about and meet new artist. -KINDA
  4. Inspire my husband to do art again. -SADLY NO

At some point I’ll need to dig back at least with digital art and polymer clay. I think I like those mediums the most because it’s easier to share my other work with other people.

Below are the pieces of art I drew while I was away.

Quick sketch in a caricature style. Too tired and not enough time to give it color. Inspired by a photo I took today of Wiggum and Me. ❤
