Daily Doodle: Drawing Myself out of Drawing Jail

If you’re an artist or just plain artsy you’ve probably gotten yourself into drawing jail. Its like a writer’s block but with bars and bailiffs and Judge Judy all in your head telling you that there’s only one way to draw and you better do it. Its a creativity lock-down. The only way out is to do something different and the only way to do something different is to get uncomfortable. I upped my discomfort by laying down blotches of watery gouache and went to town with a Kuretake #8 pen.

Different is good.

Hey All, I finished up my design internship at The Sexy Skeptic at the end of November. The Sexy Skeptic is a wonderful group for fostering skepticism and open discourse of topics such as politics, feminism, science, and sex.  If you haven’t already check out their site! These designs will be featured in the group’s workbook “Fostering a Skeptical Mind” sexyskepticbust_1_smallbrain_1 activism_3body_1  feminism_1 grief religion_1 science_1 technology_1
