a lecture in pictorial form

So many pages of my sketchbooks are filled with this...complete and utter randomness. I'm never sure whether to share them or not, but here goes.

You mean you've been holding back?...TUT!
Yes, share them! I love pages like these, a thought in process...a split second trigger of the mind in pictures...Fabulous stuff!

I've been following your blog for a couple of months and I absolutely love your drawings. They've inspired me and made my fingers itch to draw myself. One of the aspects of your work that I like the most are the lines: certain without being strict giving off a feeling of ease and fun. Hope this doesn't sound too cheesy... But it's my opinion. :) One thing I'd really like to know is what sort of pens you usually use for sketching, for example in this one? And do you do your colouring mostly in markers (of the TRIA/promaker kind) or in water colours or something else? Thank you for your wonderful pictures!

Hi Kristina-

Thank you so much for your comment! I really do need to be better about labeling my work with the media I used. Most of the time I add color with Chartpak markers...in this case, however, I drew with a regular ol' Sharpie.

Thank you Anita for all your encouragement!

Oh please share more of these with us ... they're fab!

Been away on projects and its wonderful to be back a-blogging and catching up here... Thanks for the David Macauley links ... really inspiring (for someone who spent a lot of her childhood wanting to study architecture)...

Suzanne,
I love looking through your blog. It is interesting to see the things that you drew during our class. I especially love the cappel person at the bottom of the page. You truly are an inspiration and I wish I could draw as well as you.

Your random art is more lovely than many planned stuff. I appreciate your sharing it!
