The Slumps

Here are a few selections from last Tuesday night's drawing session. I don't know what was happening with me but I found it really hard to get started this week. I did some warm up experiments then tried my hand at a few more rook sketches— but nothing was working. When this happens, I like to switch mediums to see if something will click. Eventually I got a rook drawing off the ground but mostly I just deposited a lot of paper in the recycling bin. I really can't decide the best method to tackle creative block but I found sitting around and stewing on it definitely doesn't work. Getting loose and switching from pen to pencil was a good start this time.

First a snap shot:



Then a little character sketch with ink and sponge:



Thanks for reading/looking!
