pencil sketch

Human DOING.

Posted on Updated on

This quarantine time has made me see I am way better at being a human DOING, rather than a human BEING. I like to be busy. I don’t like to be still and feel hard things. It’s ugh, and uncomfortable. But this time is teaching me that’s exactly what I need to do.

Slow down.

Breathe.

Feel it. Stay with it. See what it can teach you.

This illustration came to me when I jogged passed one of my fav trees this week. Man, it felt good to dig out my pencils & ink pens and lose myself on paper. (Drawing on toothy watercolour paper is also really satisfying. My Moleskine sketchbook was full so I had to – happy accident.)

Hope everyone remembers to slow down! Love to you all.

I can’t grow a moustache – but I can draw one!!

I was thinking as Inktober was ending… hmmm, I should keep drawing. Someone suggested, why not do a Movember theme? I thought it could be fun to think of 30 [31?] different sketches of moustaches and different styles to draw them in……. and THEN I thought, why NOT try to raise some moulas for this great cause whilst my pencil is running amok??

So [with help from Tams of course] I quickly created a Movember profile, and just finished my first sketch! I thought Kip from Napoleon Dynamite was a good place to start on the moustache spectrum.

My plate is pretty full, but this is a great way for me to put some pressure on myself and support my Bros in the process.

Please consider donating and kicking my butt a bit further down the road to keep the drawings comin’! Click here to donate: http://ca.movember.com/mospace/8179729
