Over the last couple years, I kind of fell away from keeping a sketchbook. I focused on printmaking, doing art fairs (which takes up a lot of time and energy in itself) and well, it just happened. I would carry the sketchbook around but never seem to put anything in it.
The, it started happening again without me really trying. It was a series of events, you could say. First, I started reading more. In earnest. And real books, not e-reader books. That led to taking notes on what I was reading, which then led to keeping a journal. I started adding small doodles to my journal entry, nothing too involved.
I have had a annual membership to Skillshare since November of last year. Within the last few weeks, I started to take advantage of the classes that are offered. Drawing, watercolor, Urban Sketching, Design. There is a lot! If you are interested, just follow the link above. You get two free months and I get a free month. It's 99 dollars a year and in my opinion, well worth it.
Anyway, so I'm drawing and sketching again. I have been also drawing artist trading cards and postcards. I offer these on ko-fi.com, where you can get original artwork from me by buying me a virtual coffee (or two). Click the link or click the "Buy Me a Coffee" button on the right sidebar.
So, you will be seeing more sketches from me amongst the poetry and book reviews. Please let me know what you think. I love getting comments.
