You can now follow my daily sketching on Instagram, and please do! You'll find the good, the bad, and the ugly at arianakilloran_draws, or click the Instagram icon on this site. (Don't worry, this is an 'art only' account so you'll be spared the copious images of my kids on this one.) I have been looking for a place to put daily sketches, and this seems like the perfect home. With client work and kid wrangling and sandwich making and looking for misplaced phone/keys/gloves/whathaveyou the sketchbook doesn't always feel the love. But I am trying to find those elusive minutes and make some marks. So join me as I bumble along in my sketchbook, and maybe it will inspire you to squeeze in a doodle here and there as well!
I am riding the high of having turned in a full set of sketches for a book project a day early! So far this project is pure joy. Where is the stress? The last minute panic? The agonized decision making? What makes this project so different? There are only animal characters in this book, and this seems to be freeing me up to just draw, without obsessing over who these characters are too much. And I was given amazing image directions by the editor. I am feeling like one lucky lady to have such an awesome job.
Since I can't share my sketches yet, I am posting an unused sketch from an earlier incarnation of the project. Time to get some fresh air!
