Illustration Friday: Diary

I kept a diary for so many years, well into my twenties. Sometimes I miss writing in it - it was a valuable exercise, turning abstract thoughts into sentences with a beginning and end - but after a while I just fell out of the habit. I either didn't have time, or I just really didn't feel like writing. And, like everything you do, when you fall out of practice, it's that much harder to start back up again. Maybe I should start a sketchbook diary...

I love the textures and the soft colors. The composition makes you really wonder what she is writing.

Nicely done! I love the patterned paper for the skin...lovely.

I used to keep an idea journal, where I jotted down quick illos, words, lists, photos...Like you, I have fallen from the habit and miss it.

Currently, time is not my own. Someday, I'll get back into it.
