Today’s doodle is brought to you by 1987. At school we had to keep a journal, write in it throughout the week on various topics and hand it in on Fridays for the teacher to peruse over the weekend and make comments. It seems like I only knew how to draw people with their mouths open. I also remember going through a long period where I could only draw humans in profile. It’s very amusing to me that in both “careers” I had planned for myself, I got injured on a daily basis. Also I think it’s funny what 1987 me thought adult me would look like.
My secret mission someday will be to go around town with large stickers of various gender-neutral items and plaster them on washroom doors.
Doodling while catching up on Entourage season 6. Space scene inspired by the skills taught in learning how to draw in 3D books by Mark Kistler. I’ve always enjoyed playing with shading, very meditative.
I’m going to make a large inspirational sign out of “Large Hole Metallic Pailette” so my doodle today (and my math) is to help me calculate how many I will need. Now to pick some good contrasting colours and place the order.
First sketch, still life of hound on a leather couch. It was really hard to break the seal on this project since I haven’t drawn in so long. Tonight a friend mentioned doing a still life every day for a while and that got me thinking that instead of overthinking what to draw first I should just draw what I see every day.
