more from the withDRAWal sketchbook
Someone emailed me asking how I could all this a sketchbook because the sketches were not all that good. This gave me a giggle because the whole purpose with this sketch-book is to do lots of bad art. For me, it is an exercise I use to loosen up. We all get to a point where we think our time has to be spent creating hugely impressive works of art and craft. I feel that there needs to be equal time to just flow with a line or a stroke of paint. To explore a color. No pressure and no expectations.
That is where great art comes from, taking times to make lots of bad art after bad art instead of staring at a blank canvas and a studio full of unused supplies because that creative spark or inspiration is not there.
So go make something even if you have to huddle over a shipping box as I find myself today. There is never a perfect moment or a perfect studio to do your art, don't wait for the time when it all comes together.
