Brush pen sketch made while watching "QI."

Maintaining Momentum and Fun in Our Daily Practice

If we want to create a daily practice, whether it’s exercise, diet, thought, or art related, we need to make sure that we contain elements of fun in that practice. It’s those elements of fun which keep us coming back to the practice. And ultimately it’s the fun that we bring into our work that […]

Review of the Flex Book Carnet Vierge, Blank Notebook
