It's the end of another month, so it's time to share what I've been putting in my sketchbook ๐Ÿ™‚ This time I took the Huevember challenge, in which artists create with a different color (hue) each day for the whole month of November. It's been around for a few years now, but this is the... Continue Reading →

October Sketchbook Selections (& A Note About Sketchbook Challenges)

Hello! It's been a couple of weeks since I've posted anything, so it almost feels strange to write up a blog post again. I hope you're all doing well! First things first--I realize I am quite tardy for our most recent sketchbook challenge. This past month I've been preoccupied with several other responsibilities, as well... Continue Reading →

JaNanamation Sketchbook Challenge 16

Letโ€™s go abstract again, shall we? ๐Ÿ˜‰ This week, illustrate a color without using that color! So, what does that mean? Iโ€™ve always wondered what it would be like to describe a color to someone who was born blind. What words would you use? Do you talk about objects of that color? Emotions associated with...

Drawing Upside Down

Didn't get around to posting yesterday, but here is my upside-down drawing! I didn't know what to draw, so I just drew my dog again XD If you do any digital art, you might be familiar with the practice of mirroring your canvas every once in a while to check for accuracy.

We had to compare ourselves to some object, make a model of said object, and present it to the rest of the... Continue Reading →

Oops, almost forgot! This week's challenge is to draw a self-portrait...without actually drawing yourself! You'll have to get creative and think of a way to best represent yourself. It can be an object, a quote, or even something abstract! The only real rule is that you can't draw your face (realistic or otherwise) ๐Ÿ™‚ As... Continue Reading →


I can always count on my cousin to give me something crazy to work with XD Because the font she designed was so focused on a particular image, I tried to pick a phrase that was somewhat relevant. If you're not familiar with the proverb, "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure"... Continue Reading →

JaNanamation Sketchbook Challenge 13

Building on last week's challenge, this week we're doing some handlettering! Handlettering can be defined as the art of drawing letters ๐Ÿ™‚ Here's the catch: We have to feature each other's fonts from last challenge! You can write whatever you like (phrase, quote, sentence, etc.)! Just keep in mind that this is a GRAPHIC DESIGN... Continue Reading →
