New Year, New Art

Resting Deer - sketchbook 2010

Ahhhh, there’s something about sitting down at the drawing table for the first time in a while. At first a bit anxious, but once I picked my subject it felt like everything was right again, everything clicking into place once more. I definitely want to be sure that not a week goes by without having that feeling again. There will be at least one new sketch here every week from now on.

In December all of my art time was digital. While I do enjoy working on the computer, I don’t think I’d ever be able to completely give up my paper, pencil, and pens. This was just a quick drawing from an old photograph of mine, using a #3 Micron pen on a 6″x9″ piece of smooth bristol paper over a light pencil sketch (which was erased).

  1. Let’s try again! Apparently I didn’t pass math so my other comments were squashed mercilessly by the spam police.

    I said…Don’t you just love drawing? It’s one of my greatest and simplest pleasures as an artist. I have some cats to render for a poster at work and I really look forward to those rare chances to illustrate and not just design.
