Page 1- a rolling pin, and a hammock.

The first page was, a rolling pin and a hammock, so without further adieu, here it is.

So first, why not just draw a 'rolling pin' or 'hammock'? Well, while it's perfectly fine if you want to just focus on the one thing it actually wants you to draw, I think it's fun to take that one item and just build off of it. 
It's a great starting place and if you let your imagination flow, you can get some really neat-o drawings. (Though sometimes my imagination doesn't want to flow, as you'll see in my next post.)

OK, so first I'll talk about the first sketch, what kind of inspired the 'tough baker girl' if you will, was a character from a movie called 'Stranger Than Fiction'. The characters name is Ana Pascal, not only do I love her character, I thought it worked perfectly for 'a rolling pin'. So if you haven't watched that movie, you should definitely get on that!

Onto sketch number 2, to be honest, I don't really know where this idea came from...

One last thing, I scanned the drawing onto the computer, and it looked really bad, so my brother had to take it into photo shop to darken up the lines and what not. Bottom line it was way to much work. So either A, I scan them, and take forever to make it look decent. Or B, I just take a photo of the sketch and post that. It would not be as good of quality, but probably allot easier. 
We shall see.

The Beginning of '642 Things to Draw'

   So I recently stumbled upon a neat little sketch book, 
     called '642 Things to Draw'

Basically what it is, is a sketch book full of ideas and inspiration, what you've always dreamed of right?
it's just what it says it is, 642 things to draw. 

    On every page it gives you something to draw, and a section to draw it in.
     I think it a great, especially if you find yourself not drawing simply because
   you don't know what to draw (Like myself)
 I'm very excited to get started on this. So this blog will be documenting the whole process, whether it be some of my favorite sketches, or every sketch (good or bad). I hope you'll follow me and enjoy the journey that is '642 Things to Draw'.
