2. Draw and Feel

Last Friday, the new term inSketchbook Skool started, and it’s pretty exciting! Not only am I teaching my class on sketching food, called ‘Draw It Like It’s Hot’, also the 6-week kourses ‘Beginning’ and ‘Expressing’ are happening as we speak! And it’s not too late to sign up!
This week’s teacher in the kourse called ‘Beginning’ is Sketchbook Skool’s co-founder Danny Gregory, and we’re off to a great start!
His klass is all about how drawing makes us feel and that we all are creative – in our own way.
As Sketchbook Skool’s head master and head mistress, Danny and I alternate doing the homework assignments along with all the others in the Sketchbook Skool Kommunity.

So here’s what I came up with this week, for his homework called ‘Draw And Feel’

6. Draw Tip Tuesday: How To Deal With The Blank Page

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!
Do you ever fear that first blank page in a brand new sketchbook? I think we all do. It’s a blank slate, a new start. Which is awesome, but what if that first drawing doesn’t quite work out the way it looked in your head? Um well, nothing disastrous about that, BUT it can make you procrastinate on your first drawing in a new sketchbook. Procrastinating could easily lead you out of the drawing habit, and we don’t want that!
Have no fear. There’s a simple solution and it’s a golden oldie.

9. Draw Tip Tuesday – Illustration ideas

Welcome to Draw Tip Tuesday!

When you don’t know what to draw… Then, what to draw?
The things you like most are actually a lot of fun to draw. The subject will be familiar to draw, and enjoyable.
I love food related art, and I love good coffee, so today I just pick a few favourite styles of coffee, and draw those. Adding banners to use as ‘titles’ for each item is a great way to unify the elements in your illustration. For these coffees, I can write the ingredients and even the measurements next to it, and then it becomes an illustrated recipe!

There’s more where this came from! Follow me on YouTube by clicking here

One of my favourite “go-tos”, to draw in my art journal is coffee. What’s yours?

17. Lights! Camera! Action!

Happy Holidays to all my followers! If you didn't get the chance to watch my first video author interview with the charming Adam Giles for Mirror World News, then here's your chance. During our interview, I talk about my time travel series, what's coming up next, and give some pointers to fellow writers. It was fun to do, and although I was a tad nervous, I think I pulled off my first face-to-face interview with style and finesse! At least I hope I did! Wink.

Wishing you all the best in 2016, and thank you for investing your time by tuning into my weekly blog! I really appreciate your support and kind comments. Cheers and please enjoy! Roll'em, Adam...

22. It's been awhile

Well, let's see....Since I last posted here,
a friend died;
a snowstorm obliterated the craters left by my last carrot dig;
I made a video for my granddaughter (posted below);
I read some books but not as many as I want to;
I crocheted a squirrel (working on a fox);
I took my Mom to a doctor's visit - no, make that three;
I have felt a lot of things.

I have felt the insubstantial nature of life and the inelasticity of time.

I have felt the despair that comes from resisting inevitable change.

I am hopeless that our race will ever become kinder, or even less selfish.

And, then, I see something that raises my spirits.

Being human is hard.  Sometimes, I don't see the point of our kind.  And, then, in a flash, I do.

Well, enough, here's something silly for the day. Little Blue Bunny and Nutty Romomlia

25. Need To Recover From BvS’ Sturm Und Drang? Watch This Video!

Almost every other post on my Facebook feed recently is about Batman vs Superman. That’s okay… I get it… It’s a Major Motion Picture, a tent-pole movie, the foundation of a franchise. But man…  someone added too much carbon to the Man of Steel… He’s PG-13, and soon to be Rated R. You can’t really […]
