Take a look inside my sketchbook…

I’m coming to the end of one of my sketchbooks. Before it gets tucked away on a shelf, I thought it’d be cool to show you some of its pages. After all, the point of this vlog is to inspire, and you might want to try making a book like this, too! I use this book to keep in touch with what lights me up. I might not get to the studio every day, but at least something surprising can happen within these pages.

Take a look!

Some pages are better than others, but working in this sketchbook keeps me connected to my visual language and regular art practice. Many of these pages influence my larger paintings!

Do you have a practice on the side of your regular art-making that keeps you connected? Let me know in the comments.

On this week’s episode of the Art2Life Podcast, I’m talking about objectivity. We all have an emotional investment in our work, but on the flip side, we need to bring objectivity to our work so it’s more relatable and connects with others. Join me this Wednesday as I share different ways to apply objectivity to your practice.
