The total sketching time this morning was 9 minutes. One of the many aspects of sketching soon after I awaken is that my brain hasn’t really clicked in. Nothing is as it seems. That allows my imagination to roam free and my logic to become scrambled as it did when I noticed the letter ‘s’ was backwards in spite of the “K” and the “e” facing the correct direction.
I started a new sketchbook series this morning. I call it Morning Scribblers. Here’s the intro that shows one of my handmade sketchbooks made from used file folders. It also shows the tools I used in this morning’s sketch. I’ll be posting the actual sketching of the sketch in a separate video. I’m hoping that this short video will inspire a few of you to make your own sketchbooks and begin your day by picking up a pen or brush. It might mean getting up a little bit earlier. I guarantee you that your sketching skills will improve drastically and you will begin to design your sketchbook pages with a more experimental attitude that will lead to greater creativity, personal expression … and JOY!
