If you’ve seen my posts on Facebook or Instagram recently you’ll know that I’ve started sketching again, for the first time in about a year. And it feels so, so good!
I’m very rusty, of course - who wouldn’t be after a year, and I’m quite nervous about sharing them.
I’m finding my way, and my style, all over again.
But having a pencil in my hand again and drawing with no agenda, no plan, no expectations, is exactly what I need. It’s so fun!
I’m overcoming my strange fear of sketchbooks and making mistakes, and am using a brand new moleskine along with my favourite skinny pencil. It’s from Muji and it’s my favourite! It takes 0.5mm lead instead of the standard 0.7mm so gives me the perfect delicate line that I love
I just adore sketching these little characters.
And I especially love adding freckles - there is something about freckles
I don’t know what has clicked this year but this is the most confident I’ve ever felt with my drawing ability. That confidence is still around a level 3/10 so let’s not get carried away!
But I’m definitely getting comfortable with my own style and way of drawing. It’s fun
I don’t know where I’m going with these sketches. Nowhere and everywhere.
But there is definitely going to be a lot more illustration in my future, I’m sure of it
