I post this today as a reminder that when you’re going through rough times it’s important to keep using your creativity. Something imperfect is better than not having a go. Exercising your creativity generates new energy.
With luck we’ll have an early spring and I’ll be out on the bike path again soon. But here’s an in-context page spread from one of my 2019 journals.
I’ve always enjoyed cooking shows. I put it down to seeing Graham Kerr (“The Galloping Gourmet”) when I was young. And of course Julia Child. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t allowed in the kitchen when I was a child—unless I wanted to make my tuna and rice “snack” which is still my comfort food today. […]
Late at night, relaxing and watching British comedy shows I simply have to sketch. This sketch from December 2019 is an analogous color sketch of Johnny Vegas when guesting on “QI.” Everyone needs to watch “QI.” It’s vastly fun, entertaining, and sometimes you even learn something. (Stephen Fry hosted for a number of seasons and […]
So last year as you saw I started sketching James Corden while viewing “Gavin & Stacey.” (See yesterday’s post.) I decided, since I was having fun sketching him at lunch I’d stay up and watch his late night show. And of course sketch him. It’s always fun to work on Nostalgie. The smooth surface of […]

Here’s another quick sketch of the same muse from Sktchy. I love that mustache. I was sitting in the car while Dick was in the pharmacy (all masked up). The visit went very quickly and I only had a few minutes. But it was enough time to look at the large shapes of value and […]
Just a series of quick posts today and next week—drawing the same subject over and over. Don’t think that each sketch has to be great. Just look closely when you’re drawing and get the visual information to go into your mind. Have fun looking. Savor it. Today is a brush pen sketch from 2018. It’s […]
Recently a reader wrote in and asked if I had a list of my favorite “good, basic, drawing instruction books or websites.” I thought I did have a list up of my favorite drawing books, but it seems I have a lot of single reviews. I decided to make a quick list here with my […]
