Blue Hair-Jim
marker on paper

Last year my focus of improvement was in gesture drawing and conveying more movement and action in my figures. I had to become more comfortable with working more loosely and treat each mark as an opportunity for learning rather than a precious object that may be ruined.

Freehand drawing used to intimidate me and I viewed it as a skill I did not possess. After a year of doing it with permanent markers without the option to erase or undo I’m feeling more comfortable with diving into a fresh sheet of paper. The worst that can happen is that I just have to start all over again.

Improving with each new start.
