Commissioned work of two lovely pups, rendered from photos provided by the customer.
As the sun went down today I quickly sketched this apple, applying color with washes from the Arteza watercolor brush pens. I finally put the pens to bed when daylight was gone, refusing to turn on the kitchen light, afraid it might ruin what I’ve already created under the watchful eye of the Sun.
I decided to choose a fun subject matter tonight. #toys #the100dayproject #inkart
My favorite thing is to draw from life. I particularly enjoy layered spaces and creating depth with pattern and shade.
A snippet of my bulletin board at work. Kind of loving this little sketch.

Sometimes the presence of a blank page can be daunting as hell. Breaking it up into small “thumbnail” squares somehow makes the task more approachable. It’s also fun to catch just a snippet of what you see inside a little box. It’s quick, it’s satisfying, and it doesn’t need to be perfect. You can cover a lot of ground, fill a lot of squares with a variety of perspectives. Sketch in a square while waiting at the doctor’s, while on hold on the phone, while the dinner cooks. There’s no excuse not to fit in a little drawing a day.
