Loving that I am making time to draw so much. 🙂

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 🙂

Sometimes writing and drawing is the best therapy. I did these scribbles at lunch the other day to even out and move on after a rough morning at work. The act of concentrating and drawing meshes well with prayer and meditation.

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)

Another in the weekly drawing series:
A card for a new addition to a friend’s family and a sketch of today’s preacher. I am still struggling to sketch people like this…must practice more!23-2010 // card and sketch
