Sketch 365 - Humphrey
My sketch for today has been inspired by Sally Hunter, the creator of Humphrey and his friends, you can visit Humphrey's website HERE
I fell in love with a calendar with these cute sketches on and had to treat myself.
I sketched him out this morning in between customers (back at work now) and then painted him in watercolours this afternoon whilst I enjoyed a fabulous catch up with Anita
- and yes you are my diamond too ( providing you are able to read my blog and forgive my solecisms as promised earlier lol xxx)
I aim to incorporate each of Sally's 12 sketches into my sketch-a-day project, so at some point each month expect to see more sugary sweet cuteness by way of Humphrey and his charming companions.
Whilst on the subject of sketching.
I am mixing it up a little this year.
Last year I completed 7 days straight with one particular artist of choice as my inspiration, although I am still going to continue with the inspirational artist part, I will not be completing a run of consecutive days.
As I have undertaken rather a lot of challenges this year - most of them art based and year long ( what on earth was I thinking - please tell me 2012 has more hours in each day) I decided that I would integrate the sketches I do for my moleskine journalling project, Kate's art calendar, Tam's lifebook course, Darcy's postcard challenge and any other challenge that I fail to say no to, into my sketch 365 project.
Still with me ?
I thought not lol
And before any of my longer standing readers begins to think I have abandoned my other crafting, I am still going to be posting regular cards and scrapbook pages, I have made a promise to myself to create at least one christmas card per week for 2012 and also increase my scrapbooking. Scrapbooking is my passion and I have allowed it to take a back seat for the last couple of years, but I really want to make a concerted effort to reintroduce regular layouts into my creative repertoire.
