In Context: Beyond Likeness

I make a lot of notes about the blog posts I want to write. A couple days ago I drew this cat. One of my notes was sitting there on my desk.  Together they seem to say succinctly what I wanted to say about “why draw?” and the search for likeness in portraits. I’ll stop […]

In Search of a Pen, One Finds…

After sketching for a couple hours with a dried out pen I came into the packed up studio to find a new pen. I picked up a Sakura Professional Brush Pen FB and started to scribble a couple lines on a piece of newsprint that was sitting on the cutting table.  The pen felt great […]

More Journaling Fun

Sometimes you read a bit of text in a magazine and it just happens that it goes with a sketch. I love it when that happens. What discoveries are you making today about your mind, your interests, your use of color, your language, your process…? The journal is a wonderful place to learn more about […]

In Context: Minimal Collage

This is one of those posts where the in context page says it all. Or does it? I could go on. And on. Let’s just say this was a bookbinding scrap of my handprinted paper. It showed up while I was clearing things away and boxing things for the downsizing. I love it. Lots of […]

In Context: A Collage Doodle

I got to doodling one night in a journal I’d bound with 90 lb. Fabriano Artistico Hot Press watercolor paper. And then I started to doodle with paper scraps. Pick up something you have at hand, just to break the rhythm, or simply because you want to play.

Journal Pages Just Happen: That’s Part of the Fun

One evening I found myself really digging in and overworking the black wool on the head of a sheep. It was one of those scribbly moments. A sheep flashed on the TV and I blocked it in (I’ve drawn hundreds and hundreds of sheep so I wanted to see if I could do a memory […]

Finding Clues in Your Journal…

Journals can tell us all sorts of things. They can tell us how whiny we are; how quick to forgive; how obsessed we are with one thing and not another; how focused and dedicated we are to our interests; and of course clues about our health. I was catching up on scanning the other day. […]

A Little Bit of Collage Can Be Your Friend

You know how I like to paint on drawing paper? Sometimes the paper complains. That happened when I put in the Montana Marker background on this page spread. The marker ink/paint saturated and roughed up the paper at the top of the page. I didn’t want the paper to be weak there because it would […]
