365 Days...


...Of sketches. 

Yeaahhh, you read that correctly. 

One of the goals I challenged myself with this year was to attempt a sketch everyday.  It doesn't have to be refined or a perfect work of art.  The purpose is simply to keep my mind engaged in the creative, and to help improve my drawing and thinking skills.  I wanted an exercise that would help me focus, since the series I am creating this year will be focused on just one theme, each.  Plus this challenge has an added bonus of providing a distraction between my main works which allows me to come back with a fresh perspective. 

My studio planner is set up with a word every single day that will drive my sketch.  To help keep myself accountable (because I'm trying to keep it real with myself), I'm aiming to provide you with a little looksie at the sketches every Sunday.  

Without further ado, here are the sketches from the previous week!

(please don't judge me):

1/1/2017
Happiness
What says happiness better than creature pajamas and friends?

Beauty
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...or a cup of coffee, amirite?

Sleep
On the rare occasion that I am unable to sleep, sheep will do...

Love is the best kind of gift! (but presents are cool too)

How about a secret moon garden? I imagine meteor fish and star flowers and moonlight bugs! 

So there you have it.
