Inspiration Wednesday: From My Sketchbook

I’ve been trying hard lately to manage my time so I can keep sketching and drawing ideas in my sketchbook while keeping up with my licensed art projects and graphic design clients. Here are a couple recent illustrations from my sketchbook pages.

I finished a new page this week, inspired by the majestic dahlias that are blooming this time of year.

I also went back and finished this drawing which was in progress last week with the addition of a fancy scroll frame around the illustration of critters and cattails. That fancy frame was really fun to do so I’m hoping to try that on more illustrations.

And now they are ready to be inked, scanned and digitized. Wonder what they will turn into next.

I’m continuing my quest to Make More Work on advice from established designers and illustrators. Make so much work that you can’t be ignored. I love to draw so it’s a great challenge to draw more, to drawing all the time, to continue to develop my illustration style.

Hope you’re on the look–out for things that inspire you.
