My How to Save the World Sketchbook is done and on it’s way to the Arthouse Co-op for their sketchbook show! The opening is on August 22 from 7-10. Now, I’m just crossing my fingers that mine actually gets there! I wish I was able to go see them, but sadly it’s not in the budget right now. If you live near Atlanta, Georgia, stop on by and tell me what the show is like. Here is a picture of my finished sketchbook:
I may be finished with the 30 small sketches that make up my little book, but I am still working on enlarging my favorite ones. Here is one that I did today:
“Value Your Time More Than Your Money,” 8 x 10, pen and ink
I wanted to create a drawing about appreciating time instead of stressing about money, because a shortage of money always seems to be rolling around in my head. Money always seems to be a problem– whether you have a lot or a little, but sometimes you have to make a choice to have less money, so you can have the time to do what you love, spend time with people you love, and live the good life (which I think really has less to do with owning objects and more to do with quality time spent). Prints of this drawing will be available over at my shop momentarily.
Keep an eye out for more peeks at my sketchbook. I will be posting larger drawings and possibly, some scans of the small pages.
Also, I have heard that people might be having some difficulties leaving comments on my blog. If you could, drop a comment here, and then I can see if they’re going through. Thanks for looking.
