Well, it's the final day of Sketchbook Month (as declared by friend and fellow artist Cedric Hohnstadt). I hope I will keep up this discipline, it's been a great exercise. I mean, I end up drawing something every day anyway, but it's more often for a client. Drawing something just for me has been a great adventure... and a mini vacation every day. (Though I can't promise I will post something new every day.)
What I have learned from Sketchbook Month:
1. Bold simple shapes work best. Even in complex drawings.
2. A personal sketchbook is like a diary. Do not draw with the idea that someone will be looking at it. If you do, your drawings will be self-conscious, and not as good.
3. Corbett Vanoni is the heir apparent to Mort Drucker.
4. I am surprised at how the medium I choose affects my drawing style.
5. I really like drawing gorillas.
