For those several weeks that I was on my sketching streak, I looked at everything differently. And I liked it.
It's similar to when I'm writing songs. I really learn how I feel about something when I write a song. I guess the similarity might be simply about being in the present moment. And I'm always trying to do that. Because as I get older, I realize that life is short. And I want to be right here in it. Not rushing ahead.
So... Sketching. Drawing. Doodling. Maybe I can slow the world down for myself, just a little bit. And see it in a whole new way.

I signed up for "Beginnings", and it starts today! "Beginnings" is the first course in the Sketchbook Skool line up, taught by Danny Gregory and 5 other talented artists. Each artist/teacher takes on a week of the class and gives lessons, insights and homework. You, the student, get to share your work, check out your classmates work, and cheer each other on. All from the comfort of your own home, and at any hour of the day or night. The class goes on for 6 weeks. There are three other 6 week courses that follow this one. That means I will for sure be sticking with the practice of sketching for 6 weeks, probably 24 weeks, and hopefully for a lifetime!
