Here's some of my sketches in my journal. Nothing great but everything you draw doesn't have to be great:
Did some sketching while watching one of the Sherlock Holmes movies starring Robert Downy Jr. and Jude Law. I hope they make a third movie in this series. Robert Downy Jr. is one of my absolute favorite actors.....onto the sketching (and by the way my brain felt healthier after I was done sketching):
I sketched the below pages a few nights ago while watching TV with my kids. Some of it was me just copying pictures I saw in a book. The rest is just from my own head. Sketch, sketch, sketch....it is a good thing!
Check out The Caterpillar, my absolute favorite children's magazine (maybe my favorite magazine of all). It is whimsical and lovely and fun and always makes me smile!
It comes from across the Great Pond from Ireland and Wales.
And the pages above will be featured in the Summer issue AND I drew/painted those pictures!!!
I am so thrilled.

The act of drawing effects your brain in a way like nothing can. Check out the benefits that drawing has on your brain.
I don't know about you but my brain needs some strengthening. This is definitely something I'm going to get back to doing. You could doodle at work while talking on the phone. You could draw while you eat. It doesn't have to take a long time.
