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!
