As mentioned in my last post, this year I’m committed to sketching more. This means sketching as a means of learning and inspiration, not as a practice for finished pieces.
To help myself commit to this resolution, I’ve been challenging myself to complete a sketch a day. Whether it’s a 5-minute study or a more complete work, I’m determined to pick up a pencil (or pen, or brush) once a day and visually jot down my thoughts.
If you follow my Instagram account, you’ll see that I’m doing alright in my self-inflicted challenge.
Drawing quick studies of my dog…
…drawing inspiration from what’s on TV…
…and replicating what can be found in the books in my library.

And while I may not be sketching every single day, I’m certainly doing more than I was. And that’s what it’s all about, right?
I challenge you to challenge yourself!
Whether it’s drawing, writing, or crafting, I challenge you to make more time for yourself and the things that you love.
