I always find the the first blank page of a new sketch crazy intimidating so last night around 10pm I flipped to the middle and told myself to draw whatever. This is what came out. To me it looks like my subconscious was feeling a little Catholic. Drawing the monsters in the bottom was the best part. I think I want to do more of them. Although next time I'm going to take the time to find my black pen. Blue looks kind of silly to me.
I visited the National Art Gallery yesterday and got to enjoy this incredible German Master Drawings from the Wolfgang Ratjen Collection 1580-1900. It made me feel like I draw like a monkey but SO delicious to see. Check out the slide show. The sketch books on view were jaw dropping.
