Sketchbook: pencil portrait

February 17, 2014 § 1 Comment



In an attempt to keep my brain in gear and excited about making, I have made myself a sketchbook filled with quick prompts for drawings/doodles/illustrations/techniques/visual tomfoolery. Bits of it might appear here from time to time, but being both notoriously bad at keeping up with this whole blogging lark, and tremendously busy, who know.

Anyway, here is my face. And a scarf. And a ridiculous hat. Because it is freezing in our little house.

Today I finished an embroidery project, felt all smug, and then looked at the work of Maricor/Maricar and felt completely inferior and completely inspired. Would you just look at this stitchery?!

Just a couple of speedy things to remind myself this blog exists! The first is for a wedding, and the second for a project I am currently running looking at character and narrative.
