It starts with a Sketchbook. Or a paper. Use a Ballpen. Or a pencil.
Last year I journal with words. I write my day’s event on paper. Filling it with complete details as much as possible. This 2012 I still journal but this time I DRAW my day’s event and write.
I draw inspiration from a coffee break with a friend who by the way is chasing after his dreams. Hooray!
I draw what I observe. My sister here is a perfect “still life”. PS* This sketch doesn’t look like her but I manage to capture the form. It’s still human! Haha
I draw what I eat. I didn’t bring my sketchbook to the place though but I captured the food in my mind and draw it when I got home. Still craving for these delicious food!
I draw the highlight of my day…which is a Cornetto Disc. Simple joy!
I color everything with watercolor and sometimes a bit of color pens for the words. I draw anywhere mostly while watching a late night tv series.
This is my perfect cup of motivation: Drawing my life.
You try it too! It’s filled with learnings and fun and good for our creative souls. Happy PPF!
