Little Stuff

Somedays I head out and sketch, some days I draw the little stuff.

These persimmon studies were made while designing a new session for Sketching PlayLab. Looking closely at the simplest of things is such a rewarding process, especially if you can stick through the drought of ideas that seems to follow that first burst.

This page below started with me sketching my chai cup but quickly evolved into a page full of cups and mugs drawn with different tools. Gotta love mark-making: so freeing, so expressive and so much fun.

How is your sketching practice going? Here in California, most of us are in our most strict lockdown until January 2nd, 2021. It’s become more essential than ever (for me) to put pen to paper everyday. Carving out sketching time, however little everyday, helps me feel anchored in this crazy world.

  1. You pack a lot onto a page – each image a tiny gem of observation. Not sure if you intended, but I note a sensual connection between the mugs and persimmons.
