EDM 164 Revisited

100419 EDM 164 Revisited

Realised on the weekend that I joined Every Day Matters a few weeks after Easter a few years ago... In fact it was only TWO years ago – can you believe it! And Easter must have been early that year... So I am a few weeks late...but still... It is worth a pause.... as joining EDM has made such a HUGE impact on my sketching!

So to celebrate joining EDM and starting to share my sketches with the world I have re-visited the first EDM challenge that I did. The original is here.

I felt a little bit of pressure that this sketch had to be be so much better than the first – whether it is or not there are differences – one is that I no longer care so much if the sketch comes out perfectly (because I know that my circles will never be perfect) and the other is that I feel the need all the time to design the page (often over design the page... But still the compositional part of my brain is always ticking!) and back then I wasn’t so obsessed with boxes around everything. But most importantly, because now I don’t worry about perfection so much and I develop the whole page not just the single sketch, I have heaps MORE fun!!

Anyway – a big thanks to everyone who has done so much to inspire and encourage me for the last two years – for all your comments (which I never have time to reply to or often to visit your sites) and for all those that come to visit and never comment – thanks for looking – I often wonder who you are but I know that each view number is a real person who is interested enough to look at my ‘scribbles” So thanks....

Oh dear... I AM rambling tonight!


  1. A wonderful sketch indeed, Liz. I need to be more vigilant on those EDM sketches.

  2. Both versions are really great! You should be proud! nancy

  3. I agree with Nancy, I love both versions! =)

  4. Delightful sketch Liz. As always you inspire me to pick up pen or pencil.

  5. Both are great but I have to admit to liking your fully developed page a bit more, even the camera on it. That's good really as I am sure you are hoping you've advanced some in the last two years!

  6. You do inspire, for one!! And congratulations on your work being published!

  7. Wonderful, wonderful drawing. You just never know what simple things will make such beautiful art. Very nice.

  8. Not just your sketches, but your page layout and neat handwriting are a treat to view.
