I’m making good progress with filling up my 3rd Moleskine art sketchbook. So far, the pages have been filled with illustrations done in either permanent colored pencil, or ink with watercolor. For the illustration, below, from my Moleskine sketchbook, I decided to riff on a theme. Take a look below to see how I did…
From My Moleskine Sketchbook
A-Line Variations (or, Variations on A Line?) by Joana Miranda
My newest illustration goals…
Involve aiming to draw in more of a steady walking pace (i.e. less stopping between strokes) as well as trying to hold my drawing implements more loosely.
(Ziggy showed me how he does it, so of course I had to try it, too!)
In case you’re wondering, the page Ziggy’s working on, above, is from Start with a Scribble by Quentin Blake and John Cassidy. If you love drawing (or think you’d love drawing) this is the perfect book for the novice, the seasoned illustrator and for everyone in between.
Since I’m passionate about drawing…
I do it daily. If I’m not drawing in my Moleskine notebook, then I’m usually working on a custom illustration, or scratching something out late at night on the small pad I keep on my bedside table. (I draw in my dreams, as well!) And, if it happens to be Monday or Friday, you’ll find me drawing for my Youtube channel, too. Since I was
inspired depressed by today’s news, this is what emerged:
Note: The video above has been sped up. Maybe someday I’ll be able to draw at that speed. In the meantime, if you’re interested in seeing me post some real-time drawing videos, just let me know in the comments below.
