Submission for Studio Friday
I draw, doodle, sketch, glue cut-outs from magazines, doodle, and draw some more.
I doodle when I don't have anything exactly in mind to draw. I have been quite pleased with a couple of them.
I even convince co-workers to doodle when they comment on my "art". The sketchbook page on the right was doodled by Diana, who said "Oh I can't do those. I am not that creative" ... she doodled, I colored them in. I think the fish came out quite well.
I am a firm believer that if you just DO it, you will be amazed at what you can DO.
Every child is an artist. It's when we grow up that we forget that.
And it's fun. It sure helps the day at work go faster that's for sure.
The sketchbook with the field and bugs is full.
The one standing up is one that I am doing my collage stuff in and I am now using it for Illustration Friday, too.
For the collages I paste interesting images cut from old magazines, well some aren't to old, I have been known to come close to snatching a current magazine from a co-worker when I see something that I just have to have for a collage. They humor me quite well.
The cut-outs serve as inspiration for me to draw something to go with them.
Somewhere packed away I have many other sketchbooks from years gone by. Eventually as I fix up my studio area and unpack all those boxes I will find my old "friends" again.
