Sometimes I get an idea of a place or building in my mind that I just have to get out onto paper.  Something magical happens when I pluck that idea out of my imagination and capture it on a drawing.

What creative ideas or places are stuck in your mind?  I would love to help you transform them into inspirational drawings or built architectural creations.

“Here’s another fine mess…..” – Oliver Hardy

Diaries/journals don't have to be only in written form.  Over the years, I've managed to keep bits and pieces of drawings I've done.  Here's a rare glimpse into my early drawing days.  As I look back upon the drawings I've saved...it's interesting to see how what I drew and was interested way back when has influenced who I am today.  Live Creatively!

You Are What You Eat – Dining Room Sketch

Today’s post is not an inkling sketch, but an architectural rendering for a project I’m working on.

I posted it as a reminder that “you are what you eat”. I’m making some serious positive eating lifestyle changes.

If we don’t take care of ourselves first, then how can we take care of others?  Just something to think about.

If you don’t know it by now, I love sketching. For me it’s the ultimately therapy (besides Ben & Jerry’s…and improv). For me, sketching is a way of sharing my inner core values of creativity, inspiration, and compassion. Today I did something very random. I was sketching on location. Two people passing by were really enjoying the scenery. I gave them my sketch. I cannot begin to express the power of positivity and warmth I felt by handing them my sketch. Yes, there is definitely power in words….but the power of lines on paper can really draw some wonderful benefits.
