Inspired sketch

I think I'm channeling Garth Williams this week. As a child, I was obsessed with Native Americans and pioneers. I researched both subjects to death and, of course, drew them endlessly.

I find I'm not sketching as much as I need to lately. I'm hoping that the Sketchbook Project 2012, which just arrived will get me going. Meanwhile, I'm sketching even though I don't feel like it. You should see last night's page—Yuck! Sometimes it just doesn't flow, but that's a normal part of being an artist. I just finished Steven Pressfield's The War of Art. Loved it! It makes the bad days easier. I know I just have to keep showing up everyday and do the work. Hopefully, I got the ugly out last night so that today the pretty comes back. I've reserved some inspirational illustrators' books from the library (Arthur Rackham & Richard Scarry) to push me through to the next level.
