I’ve been having a rough time the past month or so, and my studies have suffered as a result.
One of the things I’ve been struggling with has been my sketchbook practice. Or lack of it. For one reason or another, I have been feeling very avoidant about actually starting to use the sketchbooks I bought.
I tried to get myself started by making my daily task as simple as possible. Specifically, I adjusted the task so that all I had to do was make a single mark in my sketchbook. I figured that this would help me work through the avoidance.
Surprisingly, it took a week or more of avoiding this task until I finally did it. Yesterday. I took one of my sketchbooks, and I took a small book of drawing exercises. And I made a couple of marks in my sketchbook.
