Time to Draw

Well, I did a total of two drawings last week, way below my goal of four a day (which may have been a bit over ambitious). One was from a photo of my son hitting a beach ball with a toy bat, shown above. So anyway, I am putting myself on restriction for a few weeks. I spend so much time online looking at other blogs (which I enjoy), as well as an abundance of other needless online activities, that I lose so much drawing time. Of course, I didn't help that the magazine I design was on deadline last week as well!

In the words of Danny Gregory, this will be somewhat of an "electron fast." No unnecessary web surfing, TV watching, etc. I will be drawing instead. And this will be the perfect week to start since work will be slow! We'll see how it goes.

Yes, you go do what you have to do! Glad you are going to put energy into your drawing! Have a great time and we'll see you when you get back to blogland!

Boy do I related to this post. What a great idea - an electronic fast. I think I'll do the same. Thanks for dropping by and commenting on my blog! I'm really enjoying your whimsical illustrations. Please keep at it because you have talent.

I'm working at becoming a better artist too (does that ever stop anyway? I hope not). :-)

Thanks, Paige. However, my "fast" didn't work out too well. Also, thanks for the encouragement!
