LEAVE TIME FOR A QUICK SKETCH

My time and resources are always limited for drawing. So many things are on the front burner: a full-time teaching job, grading papers, sitting down with my daughter with her Kindergarten homework (the kid gets more assignments than I give my high school Freshmen), dinner, dishes, bath, bedtime, grading papers, lesson plans, laundry, cleaning and, on good days, ironing. Unless I take a few minutes to sketch, I easily find myself in the best position to make a convenient excuse not to. So tonight, while my daughter was coloring her homework elephant, I quickly sketched her backpack with my Pilot pen on the back of a photocopy.

For more about drawing when your time and resources are limited and how not to lose track of the things you love doing, there is Sketch! (get it on Amazon, Barnes & Noble or iBooks)
