New Art Project for 2016: Week 1

In order to continue my mission to draw all the time and fill up more sketchbooks in 2016, I came up with a new grid to help me stay on track each week. I’m going to use a grid like this to do daily drawings with a weekly theme, while experimenting with watercolor. At the end of each week, it will be nice to have seven new drawings and a full page illustration.

My first theme is arctic wildlife, with a background wash of light blues.

I have been making a list of themes and things to draw, so this year should be full of more creative challenges. I’m looking forward to bringing my sketchbook pages onto the computer for lots of new digital art this year. Happy drawing!

From My Sketchbook: December Page So Far

In order to fill up more sketchbooks, which is on my bucket list for 2015, I’m having fun coming up with new drawing prompts, so I’ve been trying to sketch A LOT more lately. One thing I’m doing is a monthly calendar, but instead of using it like a diary, I’m using it to do a daily doodle.

This is the last month of the year, and my last month of tiny, daily doodles. As usual, I’m looking to nature at year’s end for inspiration.

As you can see, I usually just fill up every square in this grid, rather than just the days of the month. In fact, I’m not even sure what day I’m on anymore so I’m just going to fill up the rest of the page. Stay tuned for my progress!

From My Sketchbook: November Theme

In order to fill up more sketchbooks, which is on my bucket list for 2015, I’m having fun coming up with new drawing prompts, so I’ve been trying to sketch A LOT more lately. One thing I’m doing is a monthly calendar, but instead of using it like a diary, I’m using it to do a daily doodle.

For the month of November, I’m going with a theme centered around things I see in my own neighborhood this time of year, the harvest and gathering, and the quietness of nature.
