Getting Back Into the Swing

When I looked back at my design accomplishments in 2014, I realized that I'd done a lot. I got my designs up on Kess In House in April, completed another series of designs for Kess in July, and started a range of art prints (to be revealed later this year). However, one thing I was missing was drawing on a regular basis. One of my New Year's goals was to draw one thing every day, even if just a little scribble. Momentum is the key word here. For some reinforcement and motivation, I signed up for Lilla Roger's MATS Bootcamp. Lilla sends out a mini assignment every month and then a "big" assignment one week later. This month the mini was to draw Edwardian brooches. And the big assignment was to use those drawings to create a journal/notebook cover. I was most drawn to the bug brooches, so here is what I ended up with. I have loved getting back into drawing again on a daily basis and look forward to seeing where that leads!
