I think using my annual leave to relax, rejuvenate and to sort out my life has been a good idea. I was so keen to jump on a plane and just get away from this place, but then the problem is I’ll come back and I can’t avoid “reality” forever. This week has been a really productive week- I’ve started cleaning out my closet; gone to the dentist; found a GP for myself; dealt with issues I’ve been avoiding and reignited long-lost hobbies…
I love drawing and sketching; and for those who have followed me for a long time know I used to go to Dr Sketchy. I guess in highschool there were set times to sit down and be creative but as you go through university then get a job, you have to find time. I find it very meditative and I wish I had more time/dedication to get better at it.
My boyfriend bought me the Intuos tablet 2 years ago and it’s been in the last year that I’ve started experimenting with it. You may have noticed my handwriting in a few photos :p During the last 2 days, I’ve been trying my hand at sketching with the tablet. Still getting used to and lots of experimenting but I’m having a lot of fun! I hope to integrate it more into designs and other projects! Here are my first 3 sketches, hope you like them!
If you have any tips or pointers about how to sketch on tablets, I would love to know!
