1. I had some technical difficulties with this episode. The camera automatically turned off twice during recording :(.

    I FINALLY determined it was my SD card being old and crappy. In case this is happening to anyone else--basically, the video capturing buffer fills up on older SD cards which forces the recording to stop. Upgrade your card or reduce the video quality!

    The blank page is an intimidating thing for many artists. The way I approach this challenge is to simply start without a plan. The journey is the goal for me, not the destination. I hope this video inspires you to confront the blank page and triumph! :) Good luck!

  2. Maybe it's because Google had a brontosaurus on their Search this morning, maybe it's because I woke up thinking about cave paintings, maybe it was the happy coincidence of both, but that influenced this episode, and I'm dedicating it to respecting the past, and accepting the mistakes, and evolving from them. Heh--because humans developing from amebas was all a series of perfectly imperfect happy accidents.

  3. My previous drawing attempt this morning didn't get captured. My camera decided to stop recording about 2 minutes in. Instead of letting it defeat my goal to do one of these episodes (at least) every Saturday morning, I set off to create an additional sketch!

    Obstacles will always be there--find the motivation to push past them.

  4. The first of the time-lapse series I hope to keep up with. I'll be starting with sketchbooks but will expand to include digital collage work and maybe have this series motivate me enough to go back to creating "graffiti expressionist" paintings like the old days--time will tell... one time-lapse at a time!

  5. Switched to a smaller sketchbook that I started back in 2009 or 2010. Got half way through and then life got in the way. This is my attempt to finally finish what I started!
