March sketches 1 

My titles will probably turn less and less interesting as time goes on. 

I’ve been just focusing on doodling out ideas that I could come back to later. Plus I’m trying to practice with markers because I’m still not good with them yet. 


In other news, it would be convenient to have your hair hold an umbrella on rainy days.

Green


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.

Watch your step

I say this to myself every year and there’s always some excuse. I need to update more. 

What I should be saying is “no more excuses” since my drawing skill is suffering because of my endless supply of excuses. 

Either way, even when I do update, it will be mostly sketches for now.

A year later.

So much has changed in one year, yet it’s hard to know even where to begin to explain.

I have hopes that being in my current situation with limited art supplies, no scanner, and no decent digital software yet having a whole new world to discover and pull inspiration from, my art will benefit immensely.

That’s my hope, at least. It’s the kind of hoping one feels looking outside a window, thinking about going outside, but wondering whether it’s too cold or not.

Happy (almost) Winter!

There’s snow on the mountains already! This gets me excited and makes me want to dig out my massive collection of scarves. It’s finally my favorite time of the year!

I love snow. But, I don’t like the wind that often comes with snow. It makes my hair too messy. Even people with short hair can not escape the wind.

Birthday post

Markers are still something I’m fairly new to, especially copic markers.

But, I’ll use any excuse to draw something sort of fun for the sake of “practice”.

Also, today is my birthday, so that’s another excuse to draw something not too serious.
