Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way

I wrote this book to help you conquer the intimidating prospect of filling 365 blank pages,  It's divided into monthly themes, with undated daily prompts that suggest what to draw each day. You can work through the journal from front to back, or jump around and draw whatever appeals to you at the time. Monthly themes include:

  • A month of nature
  • A month of your favorite things
  • A month of characters
  • A month of print and patterns

I encourage you in this book to explore experimentation with a one-page tutorial at the beginning of each month that outlines accessible ways to draw with different materials, such as ballpoint pens, colored pencils, paint, and collage.  There are sections of different paper types, which creates so much variety to flourish artistically; brown craft paper pairs well with black ink and white pencil, black paper is great for white and metallic gel pens, and heavy white paper is included for painting.

The journal is not only useful as a stress-reliever and as a mode of personal exploration, but also as a way of changing visual thinking. And when completed, it will serve as a reflection of its owner.

I have written prompts and  tutorials for each month and technique. I'm so excited about the unique packaging which has an open spine so you can see the paper types from the outside! Draw Every Day, Draw Every Way is a must-have for those looking to sketch and doodle their way out of an inspirational rut.
