Black and White Sketchbook Pages

It’s been nice to get reacquainted lately with one of my favorite things to do, drawing black and white illustrations in my moleskin sketchbooks with my favorite mechanical pencil and a Micron pen.

I finished the last page in my recent sketchbook (above), and started a new one (below).

In looking through my last few sketchbooks, I discovered I like to go big on the first page. I used to have such a phobia for messing up that first page!

I managed to squeeze in a little coffee shop sketching around the holidays.


Happy drawing!

Postcard Series: Celebrate the Little Things

In between working on my weekly sketchbook pages of animal art illustrations, and trying to create something everyday, I’m also having fun practicing hand lettering combined with watercolor doodles, flowers and flourishes.

Drawing all the time makes me happy, so Practice Practice Practice has been my motto this year. This postcard will be a fun addition to my Etsy shop.

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!

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.

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!
