My metareality library

A very late homework for Sketchbook Skool Storytelling Kourse. Mattias Adolfsson taught one of the klass and his homework was to make a metareality drawing. This is how I imagine my library/living room should be….I love books and papers (and also art materials). If only I have so much room to fit in books and a fireplace big to fit in a piglet for dinner, that would be awesome.

Day #2

I have started on a new challenge, the 75 Day Sketch Challenge. Only pen, ink, and ink wash are to be used for the sketches included in the challenge. However, if participants want to add colors using colored pencils or watercolor, that’s actually ok too. Artistic freedom is allowed.

The sketch above is my day #2 sketch, a sketch of Lynn Cohen. Lynn is a klassmate at the Sketchbook Skool.

Post-it notes faces

Melanie Reim of Sketchbook Skool Storytelling Kourse had a brilliant idea – draw people on sticky notes. Why didn’t I think of that before? The size of the notes is so small and you will appear to be scribbling a note rather than drawing people faces, so much less suspicious and intimidating to your subjects. I completely love the idea!

How get an IV bag & line ready

Another homework from Sketchbook Skool Storytelling, Koosje’s klass. This time I had to draw a manual. This is a manual for how to get an IV fluid bag and IV set ready. So when the time comes, you are in a busy hospital and in need of an IV fluid but all the nurses are busy….now you can set up one yourself :)

Takhini river

We were trying to fish some Northern Pike right at this spot. The current was pretty strong. As a beginner fishers, we still haven’t figured out how to fish in such a strong current. So, no luck for us that day. I didn’t see any Pike swimming either. The water was crystal clear.
