COUCH-ISMS

Here is one of the many reasons why drawing a kitty is an excellent exercise: it forces you to move fast and draw loosely. It frees up your hand and your brain. These late-night quick sketches leave me with a sense of peace -- and further awe for anything feline.

HAPPY 9TH, BLOG.

And just like that, 9 years have gone by since the first post on this blog. I started out on Typepad, moved to Blogger a couple of years ago and haven't looked back. 
Thank you for visiting wagonized either for the first time or on a regular basis. 
Cheers!

WHY FINISH, REALLY.

Sometimes in the middle of a drawing, I suddenly realize it looks too clean. Is that why I leave so many of my drawings unfinished? No, it's also because I don't have three hours of sketching time to close the deal. So there.

MOOSE

Expect some moose. Meese. I am in a moose kick. And I will make sure to make a time lapse video of the making of the next one.

GET ME OUT OF THIS RUT

I am finding out that in order to get out of a week-long drawing rut, one has to:
1. slow down all social activities
2. drive less, because it's time-consuming and creativity-killing
3. talk less on the phone
4. go back to what's on the table and just draw it.
