Getting back into the sketch of things

Posted on Oct 22, 2015 in Art

It’s been a while since I had a sketchbook with more sketches than text. But I’m aiming to change that.

I’ve recently been inspired by my (purposeful) lack of side projects and my talented cousin Emily who’s currently taking illustration in Ottawa. I’m saving up for a set of fancy alcohol based markers, but in the meantime I thought I’d get back into things with some quick pencil sketches.

I’m happy to report, just like riding a bike (ok, not like me riding a bike) I’m pretty much at the same skill level as I was however long ago that I used to do this. This isn’t my own composition and design, but rather a sketch from a watercolour I found online. I’m not going to show it to you here, only link to it, because mine pales in comparison. But let it be a benchmark here on in!
