for the scribblers & doodlers

The Sketchbook Project: 2011

What a totally cool project! My sketches are more like chicken scratches but, what the heck, I am doing it. This will be a challenge and a stretch for me as I don't consider myself much of a draw-er. However, in the 6th grade I drew 50 girls from 50 states in anime style and conducted my own Miss America contest. I cannot remember which state won, it was definitely what I considered my best drawn and prettiest girl. The inspiration was Sung Kim, who came to my school in the 5th grade after moving from Korea. She could draw those anime girls sooo good. I wanted to be able to draw like Sung. My personal Miss America contest was my attempt at drawing. I wonder what happened to that notebook? Long gone, but now I have another chance to doodle and create something.

Do you doodle?

I can't draw with a darn, but I'm down with this. What theme did you get/choose?

Wouldn't you just love to have that old notebook of yours? This sketchbook project sounds really interesting - how did you find it?

I always wanted to be a good doodler. But i'm not. I would have loved to see your 50 girls from 50 state. Very creative.

The theme I chose was "a day in the life". I figured it gave me lots of leeway.

I found it through this blog

Oh I can doodle but I can't draw. That's what makes this kind of exciting.

I bet this is gonna be a fun little project; I don't doodle much, although I do have a little sketchbook that I sometimes utilize, like when I'm in the mood for embroidery. Hmmm...I may have to check into this project. Away I go to do some clicking...
