2015: A Year of Daily Doodles

In order to fill up more sketchbooks, which was on my bucket list for 2015, I had fun coming up with new drawing prompts, so I tried to sketch A LOT more. One thing I did was this monthly calendar, but instead of using it like a diary, I used it to do a daily doodle. As you will see in later months, I started to fill up every square in this grid, rather than just the days of the month.

From My Sketchbook: December Doodles Finished

I’m happy to report that I finished my December page of daily doodles quite a bit early! And I love this page the most, of all the 12 months of doodles I’ve done.

As you can see, I like to fill up every square in this grid, rather than just the days of the month.

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 Doodles Finished

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 went with a theme centered around things I see in my own neighborhood this time of year, birds and animals on the move, the harvest and gathering, and the quietness of nature.

As you can see, I like to fill in every single square (not just the days of that month), and I like to work ahead when the ideas are flowing. Stay tuned for my progress on the last month of the year!

From My Sketchbook: October Doodles

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 October, I worked on a theme centered around the spookiness of October. I have to admit that I always have the most fun concepting and illustrating the initial grid with the borders and hand-lettering.

As you can see, I usually just fill up every square in this grid, rather than just the days of the month. And now it’s time to move on to November!

From My Sketchbook: September Doodles

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’ve been doing is a monthly doodle calendar, but instead of using it like a diary, I’m using it to do a daily doodle.

For the month of September, I went with a theme centered around the woods and things you might see and find in the forest, since we usually start hiking again, now that it’s less buggy in the woods around here. It’s one of my favorite subjects to draw!

I’ve never drawn some of these little doodles before, so it was a good challenge, and I’m so happy with how this turned out! Happy drawing!

Pages From My Sketchbook

I can’t believe August is almost over, which means summer is winding down around here. I illustrated a new theme for my sketchbook page of September doodles – the woods – since we will be hiking more again. I’m excited to fill it with doodles of things and creatures you might find in the woods.

From My Sketchbook: March Doodles

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.

I tried really hard not to get behind last month, so sometimes I drew a couple at a time. Here’s my finished page of March doodles:

I drew my template for April, so now I’m ready for a new month of fresh doodles. sketchbook page monthlytemplate

Time just slips away when I’m working in my sketchbook, especially when I have a techno / electronic beat going in the background! I’m on a roll so I’m just going to keep going.
