Just a doodle...

In college I was immersed in art classes. I never had the motivation to just draw for myself but the minute I got a new art assignment I dove in and didn't come up for air until I had it finished. I loved the chance to take that white blank canvas and transform it into space. Sadly I have failed miserably at keeping up my drawing talent. I am writing this blog post to hopefully motivate me to get back into hand rendering, separate my mind from the computer and get my hands dirty. 

The following images are from college, well the first four are from my college career. The last image is in fact drawn by Sam. We have been pondering ways to make our house more efficient and aesthetic so Sam sat down and rendered this little beauty, I was to say the least impressed. Now I just want to see it come to life in my living room.

Very nice! I hadn't seen those before. Speaking of drawings where are the ones you did while watching Arrested Development?:)

Those are great. You should definitely get back into it! I know it's hard when you don't have a purpose. When we got our first house, though, I went crazy and did murals everywhere I could. SO FUN! Right now I'm illustrating a children's book for another author. We'll see how that goes... =)
