Sketchbook Project - Finished!
Helloooooo! I'm here! Where have I been? Well, interesting story there. Remember when I signed up for the Sketchbook Project? I was feeling extremely freaked out about trying to let myself be free with this. I did a few drawings and just felt awkward and stressed each time. I put it on the back burner hoping I would feel rejuvenated and confident enough to fill it up. December came around and I got swamped with an awesome project (will be sharing that soon too!) . I was pretty much just going to let the Sketchbook Project go and take it as a defeat.
Then I saw a fellow illustrator, Pop-i-cock's, post about the Sketchbook Project and that she wasn't going to be able to do it either. I took that as a "okay, I'm not the only one that didn't get it done". Then the next day she posted she was going to do it! I felt a surge of inspiration and took the challenge back on. (Thanks, Pop-i-cock!) She mentioned she was doing her book in vector graphics. I hadn't even realized that was an option. I realized "HEY! I can totally do this". I had two weeks to fill the book up! So I began cranking out sketches in my little book and had fun! I added in some vector pieces to show a variety of my style.
I'm done! I did it! I had it done this Friday and was ready to ship for the postmarked deadline of Saturday, January 15. They extended the post marked deadline to Tuesday, January 18 on Friday. I felt so happy I had it done and had a little time to look it over and take pictures/scan the images. I could relax and enjoy my weekend. Actually, I ended up catching up on all my projects that I had to push off till the weekend. But those are done now too! Yay!
So here are a few images from the book. I hope you like them.
Subject is: ...You'd be home by now.
