Boat propeller: sepia ink

Boat propeller: sepia ink

This is such a great idea! It’s great to have some sketch motivation until my next Sketchbook Skool Klass start. Each day of the #ajchallenge has a different subject for drawing. I started late on this–on day 2, but will do my best to keep up with it. This drawing is for Day 3–something industrial. I don’t think my choice of subject fits exactly, as industrial seems to bring to mind the tools needed to fabricate a product. But, it feels industrial to me as this boat propeller is made out of metals and had to be forged in an industrial way! What is really funny about this is, it was drawn on 1/3/15 and I put in the date as 2014! Change it hard.

Next challenge is to draw an animal. Looking forward to that one.

Lunchtime Meditation

Lately I haven’t had much time at work for lunch, it’s just been so busy. Normally I take about 10 minutes to do a little meditation, but for the last couple of weeks (maybe more) I am taking 10 or 15 minutes to sketch instead. It seems to work just as well at energizing me for the afternoon! Now I need to carve out 10 minutes for actual meditation and 10 or 15 minutes of sketching! That would be super awesome for a lunch break!

Maybe a New Year’s Resolution in the making.

Documenting My Week

Here is my #sketchbookskool homework so far. Really enjoying the thought process behind documenting part of each day. I think it will be nice to look back and remember some of these moments. They are quick!

I think that I would like to do more drawings of Big. He goes pretty much everywhere I do, and he is a handsome subject.
