First Moleskine Drawing

Here’s my first Moleskine drawing. It’s actually just a sketchbook drawing, though since it’s the $15 sketchbook that I waited a long time to buy and use, I’ll title it as such. And yes; I stuck to my little buildings. Particularly, this drawing is an homage to my sketchbook hero, Mattias Adolfsson, because I believe in giving credit where credit is due, and Adolfsson’s work has definitely made the gears in my head spin a bit.

  1. I’ve been following your blog for a while and I’m happy to see you drawing again/posting again. 😀 I’m just drawing for fun, tried to do it for a living a while ago, but didn’t succeed. After starting working I really had some trouble to take enough time to do some illustration or even little drawings. Felt a bit down. I even started an art blog, but it really pains me to see that I didn’t posted anything for some years now. Sigh … but for some weeks I’m drawing sometimes and seeing you getting back with your work really encourages me. ^^b

    1. Thanks; good to be back, and glad to hear that I can help, and yeah; the self-will to continue drawing and illustrating can be a challenge. Doing it for a living is even harder. Two years ago, I was at the tail end of a four year contract, and rather than “looking for a job”, I decided to strike out as a freelance illustrator, playing to my strength, and doing the type of work that I do best. Commitment is always the biggest hurdle to surmount, but them afterwards, it has potential to work out, albeit in roller coaster fashion. At the end of the day, the best anybody can do is to merely keep drawing, draw whatever you want, and not be afraid to draw what you do best. As for time to draw, well, gotta love pocket-sized sketchbooks, your one favorite pen, and the half-hour coffee break!
