Last year I attempted to draw a sketch a day sort of as a visual journal. I made it all the way to October but then I ran out of paper the same size as the paper I had used the whole year and I never got around to cutting paper to match the dimensions. In short last year I failed. But that is what art is really all about, failure, but only if you learn from that failure. I was working on my graphic novel over the summer and experience several failures but I have learned so much from them, I have now been accepted to SCAD and I attribute that to the lessons I have learned from my failures.
In short, Learn from Failure and succeed next time.
So here is the plan for this year... I will fill a 3.5"x5" sketchbook with drawings that showcase that day in my life. Some things I learned from last time are that I want each page to be more finished artwork, and I don't want to limit myself to just pencil.
This series will be titled "Today's Sketchy"
meaning both that today is sketchy and this sketch is today's sketch (see what I did there? :)
