Apparently, each new year I tell myself I'm going to do more sketching. So I picked up my Moleskine sketchbook last night and, while partcially watching football games, I doodled. Several bloggers have gotten the Zentangle bug (see Myrna Wacknov's blog for more info and check out Joan Sandford-Cook's own take on it) from their site and are trying it. But I just doodled. My little brain won't wrap about the Zentangle premise and how it's done and I don't think I'll buy a $50 kit from the makers to learn.
Anyway, I had only 4 other sketches in this Moley - all dated 1/08! ha ha
So January seems to be the time when I think I'll sketch more and try - for about 4 days.
Here's my New Year's sketch - I might do another (there are a lot of football and basketball games on these days). I see a crazy face/mask with a curly beard and a long moustache - not what I was thinking about but that's what came out of the doodles.
I do sketch but maybe it's this Moleskine book which has never made me fall in love with it, not even so much as infatuation for a while. I prefer by Exacompta sketchbook because it has more body and more texture and the paper makes me want to draw on it.
