Cricket noises everywhere

This place hasn't been updated in a while... I had dedicated the majority of my free time to client projects (this is now changing). I still sketch every single day, but most of it is not very good.
Here are some sketches I did recently. Top left is view from my window in Pilot Parallel pen which doesn't have waterproof ink. Bottom left is again, view from my window, this time in waterproof brush pen. On the right are some things that caught my attention.

Brush pen & watercolor sketches

This following sketch is something I completely about. I couldn't decide whether to draw a boy or a girl so I drew something that was not obviously either. Ang he/she has a huge nose.

Pencil portrait

I have some new sketches on the way. If you'd like to be updated more regularly, you can follow me on instagram :)

Dead sparrow

Yesterday our family cat brought a bird, and after he let it lying there I went to sketch it before burying it. It's not everyday that I get to draw a bird from up close.

My first horse sketch from life

Precisely what it says on the tin - yesterday I went for a walk and passed by a horse ranch, and I took a few minutes to sketch the horse, than colored it at home.

He(?) really is that chubby :) in other note, I didn't do the hair color correctly, he had more whiter patches on the back but I was very quick and imprecise about it.

Weekend wanderings sketches

I haven't updated this blog in a long time, so here are some selected entries from various short trips I've taken in the past few weeks.

If you're wondering what else I've been doing, you might want to check out my post on my other blog: Komfor band logo design process. There are a lot of sketches in that post as well.

Fuzine weekend trip

This weekend I went for a yoga retreat with 9 women from my yoga class. It was wonderful, the best vacation I had since summer. Of course I took a bunch of drawing supplies as I always do, and as usual - not much drawing was done since I barely had the time for it. Here are a couple of quick sketches.

Gazebo in the snow watercolor and ink sketch

View from my room window of a gazebo in the snow. Watercolor and brush pen in a small Moleskine watercolor notebook.

I don't get to update this blog so often, but for the past 2 and a half months I managed to sketch every single day. I'm very pleased with how that's going. The trick was to put it on my task list along with everything else that has to be done.
There's a lot going on right now in terms of projects, but once that's done I'll be able to dedicate my time to my personal work, I hope.
