You might have noticed that it’s been a while since I shared any of my sketches. That’s because I didn’t do much of any in February. The Month of Craft Photos sort of took over my free time and I stopped sketching everyday. I started up again at the end of February, but I’ve stopped trying to draw everyday. My daily sketches had gotten pretty sad because I was just rushing to draw something instead of drawing when I had time for it. My new goal is to draw more often than I did prior to this year and draw more complex sketches than I was when I was doing one daily.
To give myself a challenge I’ve been using photos for reference. My favorite source of inspiration is the LIFE archive on Google. There are so many awesome old photos in there. And I still throw in the occasional sketch of something on my desk like my beloved measuring tape.
