Sketchbook Project 2012, complete!

I've been a busy bee for the past few weeks. One of my big accomplishments was finishing up my Sketchbook Project 2012. I really enjoyed letting loose and experimenting with this project. I started it at a time when I literally hadn't drawn a thing in MANY months. I hit a major creative slump last year, and the combination of this and the PiBoIdMo challenge really whipped me into shape - and unlike how I feel about physical exercise (hee hee) I LIKED it! Getting started was tough, but once I marked up a few pages, images just poured right out. I played with technique and style. I didn't worry much about making mistakes - they just turned into happy accidents.
I encourage anyone interested in trying the Sketchbook Project to just do it. The book was a lot shorter this year than the 2011 books, so that made it way less intimidating for me. I can't wait to go visit the books on tour with other artist friends too. Go check it out here.
