I started sketchnoting. Sketching is something I always loved to do, just pencils, paper and me. But that is TWENTY years ago… So I thought – as I am currently offering a Week of Inspiration on my blog – a new beginning might be the right thing to get utterly creative. Again. Sigh. Love this so much.
Okay. What I was practicing in the last seven days:
- sketching with my new drawing tablet
- sketchnoting in my moleskine journal
- working on a new website
- trying out to spin on a spinning wheel
- writing lyrics
- a new knitting design (just in my head)
- singing the Rocky Horror Show
- writing in general and on my novel
Good week, I would say. And it still goes on.
I want to hug the world today. Prepare yourself, world.
P.S. And here you can see my first sketchnotes. I did each of them in a quarter of an hour in the evening to sketch all my inspirations and thoughts of my week of inspiration.
This one I sketched just out of my belly. Did not think much in the meantime. Perfect resemblance of my inner landscape.
This one is a bit too much out of order. But nevertheless, it was fun.
This was Day Two. Topic: Light. Love it very much – tried to give it a shape before I really started to insert details. I concentrated on typography.
First sketches with my intuos tablet. Marker, edding and pencils are working and I worked for the first time with layers. I started with a fast pencil sketch and later on I did the left simple marker lined face and added the sketch as a layer (right picture).
