i’ve started a new sketching project for 2017: sketch du jour (a sketch a day . . . yes, EVERY day !). i will be documenting these sketches on my instagram page, mostly so that i will be accountable. they are just quick sketches but still, wish me luck !
you can keep up with them here.
i’m pleased to reveal the cover of my upcoming book, “France: Inspiration du Jour” (chronicle books). this is my next book which is a compilation of sketches and photos that i have taken during my sojourns in france. this book is very close to my heart and feels incredibly revealing, as i had never intended for anyone to see my personal sketchbook (let alone to actually have it published !?) . . . but i’m very much into stepping out of my comfort zone. this book will be out on may 2nd, but you can pre-order it NOW here. and you can also get a sneak peek of the inside HERE.

i never thought i could draw “people” very well, so i decided to just dive in and devote an entire sketchbook to drawing wilma. i know there is some controversy over the 10,000 hours rule, but i believe in it. and for me, it works . . . and isn’t that what matters ?
wilma doing what she does best.
i’m working on FIVE sketchbooks here in vermont. one of them is writing one of my favorite quotes with something that i have found in nature, and then doing a watercolor sketch of said object. this is bringing me such joy. you can see more of the entries here.
two of my favorite things rolled into one: notebooks + shibori. i found these amazing shibori notebooks at the beautiful shop in tokyo called POSTALCO. we spent a long time there drooling over the goods and i left with many treasures.
