Doodles, Doodles, and more Doodles... Happy New Year!

So far so good for the New Year. I've been drawing more than ever and my work is encompassing not only my OZ passion project. I've been venturing out and trying different things, letting loose if you will. Over Christmas, I sat down at the dinner table and started doodling as much as I could. I put no limit to what came out of my head, just drew for fun... What a concept! This last month has been about finding the fun in drawing again. Often times it is easy to lose sight of what is important. I think it shows in ones work if the fun is lost. Not all drawings will be beautiful, but all drawings will matter one way or another. In the coming year I really hope to let go of my pride and allow myself to create. It is easy to get stuck in the trap of feeling that every bit of work one does should be a portfolio piece. In the intersession between portfolio work, these drawings can help make the good work far better. In addition to this, I've been finding that I can still satiate my hunger for detail by working it within the shapes that I create on the page. I've found a happy medium... I'm still finishing "The Silver Slippers"... It will be done soon enough! I wish you all a Happy New Year!
