You Can’t Sketch Too Many Roosters

Drawing to Improve Your Mood

Recovering from the  iliac vein dissection has been difficult. It’s placed limits on my mobility and energy. I’ve had to change how I think about exercise.

Crows and ravens have the most amazing colors in their plumage. They are so fun to sketch. This is in a Seawhite of Brighton sketchbook. This sketch is a quick one I made while watching some nature show, practicing quick color layering and  hoping that I would be going to the Minnesota State Fair this […]
