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: July 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 July I continued to find inspiration in our backyard and neighborhood. I managed to keep up each day and each week so this month was fun to doodle.

I’m already working on a new layout for August. I’ve been anxious to start a new theme centered around the beach since we’re planning a couple trips to local beaches in August. Stay tuned for the next month of doodles!

From My Sketchbook: May 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 May I continued to take inspiration from our backyard and neighborhood – dandelions, crab apple blossoms, grape hyacinth, bleeding hearts, violets, tulips, lilies of the valley, alliums, petunias and more.

I prepared a new page for June which is ready for a new set of doodles!

Time just slips away when I’m working in my sketchbook, especially when I have a  fun beat going in the background! As you can tell, I’m passionate about drawing and creating beautiful art. Since I’m on a roll,  I’m just going to keep going.

From My Sketchbook: April Monthly 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 April I took inspiration from what I saw outside in my part of the world, which was early spring flowers – crocus, daffodils, forsythia buds opening, vinca vines and tulips.

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.

From My Sketchbook: April Progress

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 April I’m taking inspiration from what I see outside in my part of the world right now, which are spring flowers – crocus, daffodils, forsythia buds opening, vinca vines and soon, tulips, magnolia blooms and crabapple blossoms.

Here’s my progress so far. I got a little behind at first so then I got a little ahead.

From My Sketchbook: February and 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.

I got a little (okay, a lot!) behind with my February doodles so it was hard to get caught up last weekend in anticipation of March. But I’m happy with how this page turned out overall.

These doodles were inspired by some of my cameo jewelry, which I love because it’s so feminine. And the women always seem mysterious to me. I definitely want to practice drawing faces, especially in profile.

Now I’m ready for a fresh month with a new theme for March.
