So I thought I would post some sketches I have done lately. I am not sure what draws (hehe pun!) someone to pick up a sketch pad and a pencil when there are so many other things one could be doing; like meeting up with friends, baking muffins or watering the garden.
I don’t know what compels me to draw other than the simple fact that I enjoy it.
Drawing is completing different from writing.
I am present the whole time I am writing. Neurones and bring lights flash in my brain as the millions of writer monkeys squeal and bump around in that messy mess. The pencil though is different. It requires a quieter mind. If anything I am more present as the intense focus to get that shading right or the proportions accurate drowns out the endless blah blah blah.
So here’s to Zen, man. Take a looky, it’s nice in here.
