Last week, I was sorting through some of my storage units from childhood that are currently in the garage and on doing so, I unearthed an old sketchbook, which had just one single painting in it.
It’s funny how one piece of artwork can bring back a flood of memories, I was around 14 years old when I painted this picture of Lilo from Disney’s Lilo & Stitch (2002) and it was a very hot summers day, so perhaps that explains the Hawaiian choice!
I love anything that’s creative and I find that drawing can be a nice escape, kind of therapeutic, but I’ve fallen out of touch with this hobby over recent years, mainly due to a lack of time and other responsibilities.
I brought the lifeless sketchbook back inside with the mission to continue sketching and fill its pages, in-keeping with the Disney theme, I immediately started to work on a new pencil drawing of Anna and Elsa from Frozen (2013).
At the risk of misplacing this sketchbook for another 11 years, I’ve decided to share my artwork online, so if you’re interested, you can follow my sketchbook journey via my DeviantArt profile or the new Art page on my blog.
I also thought that it might be fun to accept requests, so if you have any ideas of what you would like to see me take on next, then please leave a suggestion!
Do you have any forgotten hobbies? Which hobbies do you wish that you had more time for?
