Just DO--odle it




Recently I picked up a calendar type book to begin sketching in each day.  Although I've failed at doing something each day, I am using it.  My goal with this book is to simply relax and to find more confidence withing my own drawing; something I've struggled with for awhile now.

So, no specific art goals for this book.  I plan to let my imagination run wild and see what transforms from one page to the next.

So, what are you waiting for?  Just DO--oodle it!

  5. I love this idea, Sophia - a calendar book for a doodle a day... If only I were organized enough to have more than one book (my sketchbook holds EVERYthing - even recipes! ha!)

  10. I have to ask that question to myself at times...what is it I'm afraid of? Often times we are afraid of the unknown? what will happen or how will we view ourselves differently if we are successful...and sometimes we even need to ask if we are prepared for the inevitable success?
    You are a fantastic artist! Stay with it and follow your dreams Soph-

  13. You are not struggling at all Sophia....at the risk of sounding patronising ( and I'm not) I think that your drawings are getting better and better ..... you seem to have come of age, so to speak. They now look like the work of a very competent adult artist and you have lost a bit of that child like quality. Keep doing what you are doing....art is an ever changing process. XXXX

  21. Drawing is like breathing isn't it, but I never seem to make time to just sit and get my skills back in shape.... I need to start to set aside some time to get back to just drawing... thanks for the inspiration...xx
