I like drawing animals, but I’m not very good at it yet. Though I’m thinking if I just keep using colors I might eventually get something decent looking.

At least that strategy sometimes works with my 3 year old students.

Strange stuff

Making small, simple sketches each day is proving to be more doable overall with my current busyness level. I highly recommend it for a stress reliever. 

I’ll try to group them together for more interest generating purposes. 

I like doodling strange little things like this. A lot of that inspiration came from the particular illustrator I studied under in college. 

 Though I’m quite certain he would be disappointed at my lack of effort in my artistic career overall. But I am happy he gave me tons of great advice and the push to not give up drawing completely at least.

Sketchbook doodles part 1 of ???

Whenever I get stumped on a project (like I am now. At present, I should be painting to finish this new piece, but I’m in denial), I like to doodle non-serious stuff.

This semester, I’ve gotten into the habit of putting all my serious life drawing/project thumbnails starting from the front of my sketchbook and all my stupid doodle stuff in the back.

I find doodling is a lot more fun than creating finished illustrations (not as much pressure or worries about making mistakes?); maybe one day they will be the same.

Since I don’t have anything pretty and/or finished, I’ll leave these doodles here as a reminder that I still love drawing.
