For the past week (maybe longer), I have practiced doing some simple doodling. Staying with it, and adding more and more just to see where it goes. This is a fun challenge for me, this intentional daily sketching/doodling. Its not something I’m very good at, but its fun to try something new!
I have challenged myself to only using black pens on white paper this week, not worrying about adding any color. Keeping it simple, eliminating choices. I got some fun new watercolors recently and, although I’m excited to use them, right now they overwhelm me. So, no color. And no stress over what to draw
And just doodle (which isn’t as easy as it sounds some days).

Hello! (I’m new to your blog and wanted to say hi!) I like your idea of doodling every day, I’m not a drawer but doodling I can handle! Maybe I shall try it too! 🙂 (I can feel a new pack of paper comin on!)

blair – love these! using just black can be so freeing! i only use black in my sketching – i just posted a video on my blog of my first 100 days of sketching. i’ve told you before, you were one of my original inspirations for doing it!

This was such an inspiration for me! I have plain ol’ cheapie white Ikea plates, dinner and salad size. I’ve been yearning for new dishes but just can’t bring myself to buy any. I just also happen to have porcelaine(?) markers on hand from a previous project. Your doodling inspiration + markers + blank plates = new dishes! And everybody gets to participate! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!
