Sketchbook Project

I’ve signed up for #Reverb10, a project where bloggers are sent a daily prompt in December, aimed towards nurturing a reflection of 2010 and positive manifestations for 2011. Curious and want to join? Click on the badge below.

December 6: Make

What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

So currently, I’m scrambling to fill up 80 pages of a sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. Not having drawing skills has posed as a problem in how quickly I can churn out these drawing doodles. Originally my theme was “lines and grids,” but now I’ve changed it to “a day in the life,” which is more up my alley. It’s like a retro dated diary with sketches of something pertinent to that day. I’ve learned I cannot draw faces so the rest of the book MAY just be pictures of buildings I’ve been in for that day. Ha :) Follows are the pages I have so far. Materials? Ball point pen (whatever is at hand) and Crayola colored pencils.

As for what I want to make in the future? In 2011, I’m resolving to try making Vietnamese food. I’ve never tried because I’m spoiled by my momma. She makes me whatever I want when I visit Houston. That’s a little embarrassing to admit, but it is truth.

Questions: What was the last new hobby you tried out? How did it go?
