Last month I joined the Sketchbook Challenge, an online group that shares sketchbook pictures based on a monthly theme. I thought the challenge would be a great way to get ideas and inspiration and try new techniques. Also, since I tend to sketch just occasionally, the challenge seemed the perfect way to make sketching more of my regular practice.
I didn’t actually start last month, but when the new theme of Everyday Objects was announced, I thought it was time to dive in. One of things that attracted me to the challenge was that the definition of a sketchbook and sketching is pretty loose and includes any medium and the themes are open to interpretation.
Here are some pencil/ink drawings from this morning and yesterday. I sketched some pictures of couple of my favorite mugs while drinking my morning coffee. Of all the everyday objects that I see around me daily, these are some of my favorites.
