Day 46: Xavier Santos


Okay, I've noticed that people don't comment as often as they used to and that is fine, people are busy. Plus this is a drawing a day not a blog post a day.


With that being said I am not going to post everyday. I've decided to let a few drawings build up and then post.


Plus Xavier is wondering why his papa isn't playing with him every chance he has.

Day 42: Drawing a Suite Valentine




The Valentines are in the mail to those of you who so kindly requested one. I hope you enjoy.


All the drawings were done, randomly put in envelopes and addressed. I don't know who got what.

Day 37: Pictures of Me


My friend Jeb asked me recently in an online note if I was getting anything out of this. Well, I couldn't tell if he was asking about the drawing everyday or giving away free Valentine drawings. I do get a good feeling out the free drawings. The drawing every day for a year, I think I am getting...somewhere.


What this is for me is practice. In anything you do, I believe, you only get better if you practice daily. You want to learn a musical instrument, practice. Do it every day and you will become good at it.


I started out very satisfied with almost every drawing. Now I find they aren't as strong. This is really forcing me to think more about what I am doing. Not only in the technique of what I do but why I do it. What do the images and/or markings I make mean? Should they have a meaning? Should they be easily interpreted? Do people read it to them? Should they? Not sure.


I do find myself slipping into the self portraits...again. Not sure if I like that direction but as I say, get a notion-do it.


I guess all in all if I am still getting notions I'll still be drawing. Hopefully, within a year something will develop.

Day 33: Behind the Scenes


If you want something done and done well, you have to do it yourself. Why is that? Is it because one person's expectations most likely isn't another person's expectations. I suppose.


Why do I bring this up? Because I'm a control freak. I never used to be this way. What has happened to me. Egad!
