I was given the challenge by a friend to sketch everyday this month... so I grabbed the nearest small sketchbook (crappy paper and all) and began my 31 Days of Sketching Challenge. I started late and don't have enough time in the day to work on these every day, regardless here is what I've been working on the past few weeks.
I am attempting to quickly get all the ideas, concepts, thoughts and "stuff" out of my head and onto paper.... an attempt to find those snippets that mean something important and need to be worked on in depth in my other journals. Perhaps larger on canvas.
Days 3-4: "Fear of losing ones self"
working through some ideas/thumbnails for an entry into my Book of Dreams visual journal. dreamt of a salamander and toad. took me all day to decipher the symbolism, but I hear my subconscious loud and clear.
though not a "sketch" I am prepping pages for new visual journal work and adding to incomplete pages/spreads... so I am kind of sketching in a way...
Day 6-7: "Love Deeply"
Working through some new bird imagery. This is a bleeding heart dove... I recently did a monotype print of one of these birds and am really drawn to them right now. SO, she will probably show up again.
Day 8: "old skin"
Working up some more concepts that have been mulling around in my brain for far too long.
Day 9: "muscle & bone memories"
I've been trying to figure out how to work this idea out on the page... going to work out a few more ideas over the next couple days... bare with me.
Day 13 or 14: "Truths be told..."
Looked up and this is the reflection staring back at me in the window. My mind was heavy in thought. Finished this up with some journaling off to the side.
Day 15: "ability"
