01012017 - Things Are Gonna Change

I'm posting this today, January 2 but it was the first drawing of my daily drawing project for 2017. I just remembered I had a blog (oops) so that's the reason for the late post. I'll be better about it in the future. So for today, I'll end up posting another drawing as well. I'm really hoping this project will help me figure out some things. I've become really bogged down with...well, I don't know exactly - maybe the...details?

Every time I pick up a pencil I freeze up and start overthinking what it is that I'm drawing...for. Having a purpose for everything you draw becomes really exhausting. Is it for kids?, what style?, do I have a style?, do I hate myself today?, am I creating this to sell online, is this a stencil, should it have a dark black outline, is this a happy drawing?, am I working on my hand-lettering?, am I an illustrator, can I ever learn to draw?, etc....it's never ending.

So in short I hope I can get past this stuff and figure out what it is that I do...as a whole. I may never. 

Cheers to a new year.

Bookblock Original Custom Notebooks

I’m really excited about these beautiful custom notebooks. They’re from Bookblock Original & amazing quality. 90GSM Ivory, blank pages are perfect for mixed media & sketching. I use markers a lot on my client sketches and this is the perfect paper weight.  I’m going to have a short run made of the monster notebook - and sell them. Not entirely sure about the color scheme - I might revise that. I highly recommend these beautifully crafted notebooks.
