Here are a couple of drawings from the last couple of weeks…

I was doodling while I was on the phone and came up with this. It’s definitely the most interesting thing in my calendar 🙂
Sitting in the car waiting while Shel had his drum lesson…I tried to journal, but the words didn’t want to come…but I found I could draw. So I grabbed a croquis and drew what I was planning to wear today. I wish I was shaped like the model 😉
Quick scribble in my watercolour Moleskine to see how the paper behaves differently to the pages in the sketchbook Moleskines. I like the way it takes the colour! The think, rough paper really soaks up the colour. I had a rough time with he watercolour beading up on the sketchbook paper, so this lovely new experience of laying down the colour without having to “manhandle” it was wonderful!
Did some scribbling in my journal this morning while I was waiting for something or other 🙂 I LOVE ampersands and typography in general…there’s something about these curly little guys that just captures my imagination and the way my brain works…always asking “and…….” 🙂
Update June 2011:
This is what my tattoo ended up looking like 🙂
I’m on holidays at the moment…you can tell I’m on holidays because I completely forgot to blog the first couple of drawings I did for the year 🙂 so here they are 🙂 I’m just about to head off for a trip to Tasmania and plan to do LOTS of sketching…so you can look forward to a flood of posts when I get back 🙂
Each year I attend the Global Leadership Summit and take sketchnotes to help me remember the key points. This year I went for a sepia theme and used PITT artist pens. I added some watercolour during the week as I meditated on the notes and thought about how to apply what I learned. I didn’t do quite as many drawings this time around…instead I focussed more on typographic elements.
If you would like to see the set at your own pace you can see them here. I only just fit all of my notes in…the very last entry was done on the pocket at the back of my Moleskine 🙂 There is something insanely satisfying about filling an entire book with sketchnotes 🙂 (The first half of the book is filled with the sketchnotes from 2008)
