For the third year in a row I joined 200+ other creative keeners in the ARTiculations Fill’er Up Sketchbook Challenge. We all took up the challenge of doing something–anything–creative in our sketchbooks each day for the month of March. The sketchbooks are now on display until April 26 at ARTiculations.
For me the challenge wasn’t so much about being creative because I work in the industry (kinda got to be); it posed a challenge because I had no rules or restrictions to follow, no client requests, no starting off point. I had free reign, and it was tough getting going. Sparked by my interest in all things aquatic and medieval decorative arts, I doodled chalices and sea creatives, and also combined them on a few occasions.
Here are a few pages from my sketchbook. I hope you enjoy them, and I encourage you to pop into ARTiculations located in Toronto’s Junction to check out the great collection of sketchbooks on display, especially by the grades 5/6 students.
