Sketchbook Update

Last year I declared March to be “Sketchbook Month” and started an informal little blog challenge: a sketch every weekday for the entire month. Several other artists joined in and pretty soon we had a pretty good party going. With the new baby things are just too crazy for me to attempt it again this year, but I’m hoping next March I’ll be able to give it another go.

In the meantime I’ve been doing what I can to keep my sketchbook from growing too cold. Thought I’d post a few recent doodles.

After years of hearing other artists sing the praises of Blackwing pencils I finally ordered a box. The guy in the army uniform was from my first day breaking them in. I gotta say, those pencils make for some silky-smooth drawing. The Blackwing’s reputation is well-earned.
