I don't know why I don't do things unless there's some sort of pressure involved... maybe that's why I'm attracted to the design business? I must enjoy the expectations and deadlines!
Anywho, I got on a creative spree last night, pulled out my old toolbox from my art school days, grabbed a pencil and flipped open to a fresh page in my pad of Bristol paper.
I got a lot of requests through Twitter on who/what to draw (and I still promise to get to everyone eventually!) but for my first one I decided to draw Leona from This is Disneyland.
This is going to be a total surprise for her :)
I realize it's not perfect by any means, but I did it as a quick sketch and touched up a tiny bit in Photoshop, as I plan on doing for most of these. The point is to get my hands dirty again and make sure I'm not forgetting about my background in art as I move forward with graphic design.
I think I'm going to have to continue this weekly "Surprise Sketch" post with a different drawing each week, all as surprise portraits of your favorite bloggers! What do you guys think of that?
Fun? Me too :)
P.S. I'm part of a giveaway going on at Aunie Sauce! Lots of prizes up for grabs including some large ad space from me! Go get your buns over here and enter!
