January 31st ...oops...erm... February 1st



I have lost track of time...

is it 1 am already?

Just finished a little doodling with my paints at my desk and feel like a new person...I really think I am addicted to painting. Seriously. I feel I am not 100% "me" when I am away from my drawing. Its scary how relieved I feel as I watch the paint hit the paper.....Like I have been choking and suddenly I get a huge dose of oxygen!

Sorry...another weird moment there...

Anyway...above is another spread from my sketchbook. The pic on the higher right side of the page isn't mine, its a detail from Iznik pottery (courtesy of mr Dean, thank you!)... The other stuff is just more doodles ....

Before I say goodnight, I would like to thank all of you for your support the past few days....Its really helped me....I love you guys!!

So talented.... couldn't ask for anything nicer to look at.

Your sketchbook puts mine (to deathly boring) shame! I love them! It reminds me a bit of Sara Midda's books - which were basically collections of tiny illustrations with hand lettering. I'd buy a book printed from your sketchbook pages!

Yes, I get sketchbook envy too when I'm looking at Maya's work...really would be worth putting some on your website when you've got time.

I think my "dream job" would be making journals....I've never thought of trying to do a more "professional" (well...I mean tidy and more thought about) one...
Maybe because I enjoy them too much and wouldn't actually feel like I was "working" if I did...
(shocked emoticon goes here: never thought about that before...!)

I think that sounds ideal! And I wouldn't overthink it too much - your spontaneous instincts are superb. "Sketchbooks" are hot property right now... This is worth thinking about!
