You must think that I have gone completely bonkers and / or bananas!
Indeed, I have. These recent days I’ve made tons of these quick little sketches, and I’m really enjoying myself, although they do seem to take up a rather big part of my time available. Now that I think of it – these 22 sketches – If they’re about 25 minutes each represent.. 5,5 hours of drawing.. Hmm.. I suppose that’s actually kind of quick for so many sketches, but it’s also time that I ought probably have spent differently thinking about my tight schedule. Okay, let’s forget about that 😉

Anyway – If I start doing this amount of sketches, I’ll need to post them much more frequently. I don’t have near enough time to talk to you about each one in particular, and the time spent on editing, scanning and posting also becomes a bit too much all at once! That being said, it’s really been fun. Most of these sketches are from requests at “Reddit Gets Drawn” where users basically post their photos for a a lot of bored artists to draw! It’s really fun to look at the different kinds of artwork too. Some are really professional whilst others are really fun and all about “learning”. There’s a lot of experimentation going on too, so if you’re into drawing, go there, and try for yourself !

I try whenever I speak about my drawings online to also include a link to my new “Portfolio of pet pictures, and cat and dog drawings” – And that, I just did! Please go there if you want to see some of my more “finished” pet portraits. They’re mostly in watercolor and ballpoint pen. And if you’re a blogger of art or pets, It would be a real help to get one of those hyper-links from you.

That’s all for now. Have a great Thursday!

Oh, and I mustn’t forget to keep the count! These were my 638th-659th drawings since the 9th September 2014.
