Page by Page

  Page by page I’ve been working through one of my last remaining hand-bound journals containing ThSaunders/Waterford 90 lb. high white, hot press watercolor paper. The great news is that they are still making this paper so that I could bind some more of these approximately 8-inch square books. This is one of the recent […]

You Can’t Sketch Too Many Roosters

I think an imperfect drawing of a rooster just might be better than a perfect drawing of anything else. The looking, while sketching, brings the joy. And I can’t think of anything I’d rather look at than roosters. Well maybe rocks.

Hesitation: Reluctant to Start a New Project

  Recently one of my students wrote to me that she was hesitant about starting a new project. Hesitancy springs from a lot of issues and conditions.

In Context: A Little Doodling

You’ll remember that in December I was trying to finish a couple journals so I could count the pages in my yearly total. By the start of December I knew that unless something drastic happened I would have no problems meeting that goal. Everything was progressing at a rational (i.e., no long sessions of drawing, […]

Working in a Grid

Last fall I started doing a series of talks and posts for my Patreon subscribers about working with grids. There are tons of reasons you might want to do this but the main reason is to keep your momentum going when you find you don’t have a lot of time to make art.  Even if […]
