I’ve started a new sketchbook, titled Sketch Play, and I am seeking inspiration from other artists as my own skills evolve. My day begins and ends with art, reading or writing. And when I wake in the night, instead of fighting it, I get up and usually paint or read. In opposition to play, I am presently reading John Steinbeck’s The Grapes of Wrath. Reading as a writer, I take notes of how he reveals his characters and, I will say, he is a master of character and gives each one psychological and emotional depth. Wow!
PS. Today’s sketch play images were inspired by SCBWI illustrators and a greeting card artist named Dena. SCBWI stands for Society of Children Books Writers and Illustrators.
