one small step
Several months ago I picked up Danny Gregory’s book "Everyday Matters" and was totally inspired to start sketching. But, being the perfectionist that I am, I’ve had a hard time getting started. The idea of using my precious moleskine as a practice ground for quick and imperfect sketches has contributed to my reluctance to put pen to paper.
Instead, I’ve been cruising sketching blogs of talented artists like Suzanne Buchanan and Tommy Kane and checking out Danny Gregory’s site.
But all this time, the urge to draw has been nagging at me to just DO IT. So this morning I finally did. I opened up the cheap little notebook I keep by my bed to unload miscellaneous thoughts and knocked out a quick little sketch while I was still groggy and before my rationalizing mind could interfere.
It's just a baby step, but at least it's a step in the direction I want to go.
