I think the title of my sketchbook says it all. I am pretty much a complete newbie - I used to love drawing when I was in high school, then in university I only doodled during lectures, then in my first year of my PhD (which I subsequently quit) I did some life drawing classes and I haven't drawn since then - so no drawing since 2005!!!
Since my ex-husband dumped my pregnant ass I have been trying to bring my creative side back - so I am dusting off my pencils and getting into it one again. With two little ones to chase around every day I don't have much time for art - but I am going to try my hardest to draw at least one thing a day. I'm hoping one day to write and illustrate books for children within the fantasy genre - so this is the start of my journey! I'm currently reading "Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain" by Betty Edwards, so a lot of my sketchbook entries will be exercises from that book.
Thanks for reading if you got this far and please leave a comment if you want me to come check out your sketchbook - I would also love any critiques - I'm here to learn!
