A Day in the Life of My Sketchbook!
I feel as if I should be giving you a slow cooker recipe to correspond to this article. I may joke but ultimately in today’s day and age, whatever your background – whether you’re a professional single parent, retired, semi professional, career focused or a student, there is a fact that is common to all of us.
Our time is finite whatever our background.
One of the most common questions and statements I hear often is “how do you find the time?”
I find the time because I make time. My sketching on a daily basis is a priority to me because it supports my well being and creative development. So before you read about “my day in the life of my sketchbook” take a moment to personally align yourself to why you like drawing and sketching in the first place.
Whatever your reason you will need to focus on the positive outcomes it brings you so that it can climb to the top of your priority list.
In my previous post I talk about what motivates us to get creative and how we can easily get discouraged if we don’t establish some routines and parameters to grow and develop.
There were some suggestions to stop and think about where you can squeeze your day in order to be able to seize it, and find the time to “book” in some drawing if need be.
I admit, however, that simply wanting to draw and viewing it as a priority is not enough. I’m going to be laying out some templates for you to use from my own sketchbooks on the basis of the type of day I am having. Your job is to decide which situation resonates in your mind the most. As you grow and develop you will probably find yourself using different formats for different occasions.
