tonight the streets are ours

It's really rubbish when your holiday ends, isn't it?

Here are some of the sketchbook spreads that I made on my recent stay cation. I'm enjoying drawing, in this way, so much at the moment. I was never really interested in journalling before, but I am now hooked. It has surprised me.

I was also surprised by how willing my visitors have been about adding their little drawings to my book. I though they'd put up a fight when I asked them to contribute. But no.

Oh, I don't want to go back to work tomorrow.

The drawings are fantastic, wish my sketchbook looked like that rather than the unmitigated disaster that it actually is.

I continue to love your work - I'm glad I have a couple pieces of it. Keep up the great sketching.

Hi andrea... i always follow your blog but hardly ever leave comments...but I hope you know I am always looking over your shoulder and loving it all!
But got to say that I love these journal type pages! Sensational! And I too love having others contributions to my pages.

My son looked at it and immediately said, "Oh, that's Obi Wan Kenobi from the Clone wars."

So there you go.

I have to say it again! I love your sketchbooks! I can sit and study them for hours. I hope one day that you might consider doing a youtube video where we can watch you draw!!Thank you so much for all the inspiration you give us ;)

Lovely. The sketch/journal/guest-sketch is terrific. I thought the difficult table looked fine, especially since I was looking at it upside-down.

Have you ever run across a nice little drawing book called Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain? It's available free on the web, excellent exercises. Your 'draw it upside-down' technique is one of the exercises in the book. You might find the book interesting, although I think you're far too good an artist to really need it.

My only criticism is that you don't post 10 drawings daily. Please consider forgoing having a life in order to post more frequently.

Wow very nice and handsome sketches, but im curious, do you sketch on paper first then scan? or do u sketch directly on PC?

Thank you, all, guys.

Beth, I know of the book and have completed a couple of excercises. I might just search it out again.

Mariam, it's all done the traditional way with pen and paper.

Cheers, folks. I appreciate each an every comment.

Andrea, I love the sketch of Lego Anakin - you captured his "waah I'm about to cry at ANY SECOND because I'm such a whingeing BABY!!" Cheers to you, yet again ;).

And I agree with AngelEyes - I love seeing what you share with us, but I'd love to watch it happen!
