I've said this before, but there is something about taking a picture of a drawing that lets you in on some of the quirks. I'll make some adjustments to the lines so it's standing straight-er. I made it a point to not bust out the ruler to get perfect lines for this whole challenge for two reasons. One was learning to draw again and to really get my pencil to mark the way I wanted. The other reason was to preserve some of the organic feeling of sketches.
This morning ended up being wide open so I took myself to the gym, then at home I made a cup of french press to go with this sketch time, while listening to french music. I'm trying to do things that I used to love and maybe I'll start to feel like myself again.

I'm an illustrator and graphic designer who is desperate to get back to the basics of pencil and paper! I'm challenging myself to sketch everyday for 40 days in hopes of regaining my overall skill, creativity, and wonder!
