Sketchbook

<br>People on the bus – the rather grim elderly gentleman spotted me drawing him and got even grimmer. He was scary and did a good line in Glowering, so I stopped… which is why he has no body. Serves him right.

It’s been ages since I had time to just sit down and draw something just for myself – in the middle of a weekend that’s slightly more leisurely than usual, I managed this little sketch of my weird attempt at home beautification. Not pot plants but bag plants! Hmmm…

    Hi Sarah,
    I’m loving your illustrations and sketches.
    I’m drawing myself and not sure how to go about it; I love illustrating, especially for kids.
    In any case, if you have a word of advice (how and who do I show my works etc) – I will be really happy to get an email from you.

    Take Care!

    Hi Magda;

    I’ve been getting a lot of queries from people about how to get started. I’m definitely no expert and I feel like I’m just making it all up as I go along, but I think it might be nice to put together a page of links and good starting points for people who are wondering where to begin. It’ll tke me a while, but I’ll let you know when I’ve posted it. πŸ™‚

  3. Hi, I just visited your blog for the first time. Beautiful artwork, and thanks for the glimpse into your sketchbooks!

  4. Hey there, I just stumbled upon your sketchbook, really nice:)
    Do you usually refine your sketches at home?
    I try and sketch people at supermarkets and places like that but, well, I usually only manage to put down the main volumes since everyone stands still for just a handful of seconds…
