Here's the backstory: I've been listening to lots of podcasts and reading posts about creating daily habits. Learning about others' creative and artsy daily projects was very appealing to me. Though I'm creating daily for my business, I don't create for myself. Actually, I rarely create for myself. So, this sketchbook is for me.
Even though I'm sharing it, I'm going to do my best to be selfish about it.
To create what I want. To not judge my art. To not compare my art to others'.
My only rule is to add to it daily. I don't care how much I add--it can be a full page, partial page or multiple pages. So far, my mediums and subjects have ranged greatly in just the past ten days. I've been choosing my subjects from something that inspired me that day or something that happened. So, in a way, this sketchbook will also serve as a sort of journal.
This will be a vulnerable process, but I look forward to how it will help me grow. And I'm very much looking forward to having one (but hopefully more) FULL sketchbook!
So here are my entries for January 1-10. I'm making a goal to share an update on this sketchbook every Monday.
