Since organizing and hosting the first Sketchbook Revival Workshop in 2018, I've been creating a sketch just about every day. It's how I warm up, explore a theme, learn a new subject, play with color, and just have fun. I can spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour on a sketch. What's important is keeping up the practice since I believe that consistency is where the magic happens. Here are some sketchbook pages from my Sicily inspiration series, 30 days of parrots, intuitive figures, collage play, and a series of character sketches illustrating some of my favorite quotations by the poet Rumi. .
