Draw Something.

Spiral Notebook by Witandwhistle.

I saw this typography piece on Etsy today and really liked it.

It’s so true with me that I always put off drawing because I’m not happy with the direction it’s going and I abandon it. But the reality is that I need to draw something, every day, even if it sucks. Especially if it sucks. Because what our parents always said is cliche, but true – practice makes perfect. Just like with any other skill, you lose your drawing abilities when you aren’t drawing every day.

So for me, the hardest part is getting over that hump of being defeated because my sketches lately aren’t up to par with what I know I can do.

I’m hoping to make progress with this, though. Life is hopefully settling down a bit – after more than a month of searching and 20-some apartment viewings, we FINALLY found a place. We will be moving mid-April and although now I have to somehow figure out how to clean and pack among family visiting from out of town next weekend and us going away the following weekend, I’m hoping free time may be in my future!

The hard part will be convincing myself to be productive with that free time. Seeing as how I spent 8 hours watching Bates Motel on Netflix yesterday and am already on my second Disney film of the day today. (See my previous post for how I like to spend my weekends.)
