I’ve been visiting a lot of art blogs lately… there are a ton of them out there and an unbelievable number of great talents as well. One thing I’ve noticed about many of them compared to mine: they have a lot more art. I seem to mostly talk (so to speak).
I like to write so that won’t completely change, but artists like my friend Steve Silver always inspire me with their seemingly unending commitment to draw, draw, draw. It seems like I never draw anymore unless it’s for a job. If you never do it for yourself, it becomes nothing but a job.
So, I’m dusting off my sketchbook and committing myself to doing at least one sketch a day in it. It will be whatever I want it to be… maybe a study of hands or a caricature or a chair. Whatever. I’ll limit it to 30 minutes maximum. It will serve as a warm up each day and get the juices flowing (well, that and Monster Lo-Carb).
Here’s the inaugural Sketch O’The Day: Daniel Craig, the new James Bond. I hope to see the movie sometime soon.
