I have been admiring this book for several months now whenever I visit Michael's Arts and Crafts store. The book Creative Doodling and Beyond is filled with inspiring prompts and exercises to get your creative juices flowing.
So I decided to finally get this book since I always want look at it in the store. I thought it would be a good fun exercise to follow along with.
A few days ago I was looking through my old sketchbook from college. I attended the Columbus College of Art and Design. I love looking back to see what my work looked like when I was starting just starting out.
In high school I actually was more interested in drawing photo realist art, but when I went to art school, I started to make more cartoon art. We had a some students that would go on to work for places like Hallmark, American Greeting, and a few friends went to work for Dayspring.
When I finished art school, I actually went back to a more realistic subject matter when I exhibited at a lot of festivals and galleries back then.
Then eventually after having kids, I went back to a more whimsical style of art. So you can see I have gone all over the place.
I'll show you some more of the exercises I am doing in my new book soon.
