a little sketchy

For my blog night this week I wanted to do something a little different, or at least something I am way overdue. I sat down and filled some sketchbook pages. I started with some quick gesture sketches of my wife and kids as they were sitting or playing around in the living room.

Then I looked around for something else to draw from and we had a framed antique photo of a couple that I am presumably related to. I don’t really know them, as it is quite an old photo, but I know it came from my grandmother’s box of photos. Anyway, this is Mrs. John Holm. She sure was a handsome woman!

Finally, I filled a page with some surreal stream of consciousness type sketching. I’ll leave the interpretation up to you, though I have my own ideas.

I’d love to hear what you think of that sketch. Can you make up a story of the thoughts behind it? Sound off in the comments below.

Stream of consciousness drawing #3

I present another drawing from the stream of consciousness. These are just an exercise in putting down my imagination to paper. There is no story or reason to anything, just simple drawing. Sometimes they give rise to an idea that I will go further with, but most of the time they aren’t really anything besides imagination practice. I definitely recommend giving it a try, and don’t hold back! Put anything and everything down that comes to mind.
