I was really inspired and impressed by Tom Judd’s drawings at 50up. He does kind of a diary where he totally fills a page each day with his drawings, doodles, text and the date in big letters. They are just amazing! Here is just one of them:
I filled one page in my note pad at school (it was a very boring class) with doodles, and when I came home I coloured them with my pens. I didn’t use watercolours, and the drawing are not very similar to Judd’s drawings at all – but that’s where I got my inspiration anyways. It came out like a rainbow, crazy but happy.
My doodle makes me smile, and I wanna make lots more of these. I draw a lot in my notes at school, just for fun.
To create this was just a fun little moment in time – to colour this page and see what would happen with the composition.
I decided to add the doodle page to my art journal, to keep it safe.
It turned out like this:
This is the last spread of my second Art Journal. I can’t believe I’ve already filled two whole sketchbooks of art (!). Time flies, right?
I’ve got a similar one with a white/cream coloured cover to start in soon, but I haven’t had the time yet. Today I’m writing an article about scrap booking.
On the right of the spread you can see a little scrap of the stretch fabric I bought last week. Isn’t it beautiful?
I think it will look very nice with my new jeans when I make a sweater out of it, but I haven’t got a pattern yet. I’m thinking I might draw a pattern from a loved sweater I already own. We’ll see. Writing first, sewing later.
Sew you later…
Take care and thanks for all your wonderful comments this past week!
