Just a few days ago, my friend Trevor pointed out a cracking little video about sketchbooks and journals, and since then I haven’t been able to get it out of my head. Now it’s forming itself into yet another New Year’s Resolution:
- to do a drawing – or anything visual – every single day and post it on the web.
At first quite a lot of my drawings will be for my ‘Beetroot’ children’s book project, because I’m challenging myself to do one of them every day until I get the book finished.
I don’t want to stop at that. I have ideas for many more things this year. I’m determined to conquer lino-printing, and also have more ideas to resurrect my character ‘Brixham Bill’.
I need to make sure I do something every day, even the smallest of doodles.
Where to put them? I couldn’t choose between Tumblr or Pinterest, so I’m creating a visual journal on both.
So, curses Trevor Vincent! You’ve inspired me to add another thing to my list for 2014.
