A few days ago I found myself feeling unproductive so I decided to lay out all of the drawings from the last week across the floor. It was a good check in to do because I’d produced a lot more work than I’d realized. And now this work is making its way to my Etsy shop for other people to enjoy.

These two are my favourite of the group of drawings I’ve created to date. At the moment I’ve just started working on a piece that will combine paper cutting and drawing. I’m curious to see how well this will work.

The drawing obsession continues (of course it does!) but now things have shifted to longer lines flowing around a circular area. The first two drawings I completed are spiraled lines around a central point working towards a finished circle on an 8.5″ x 11″ piece of paper.

I am kind of amazed I can do these because I’ve often struggled in the past to maneuver a pen smoothly across the page. I think my hand has been made steady and skilled by working with a knife the past few years.

These are two of the five drawings done in the last week. I’ll share more in another blog post. I’m enjoying the process of these because they are being done for their own sake, and I’m happy with the final results.

Leading up to Christmas I decided to go on a little bender of card making. I’ve had a pack of blank white cards for years just sitting in my supplies waiting to be made into something lovely. I went at a few of them with metallic gel pens and made the abstract series of cards pictured here.

I gave most of them away to friends for Christmas, but these are like small sketches of larger pieces I would like to do when I get a moment.
