It has been quite a few years since I have done any type of art on a consistent basis so I am well over due for some creativity in my life. In that earlier post I shared that I would be using the book, You Can Draw in 30 Days by Mark Kistler in order to jumpstart my creativity and relearn anything that I may have lost or forgotten. I must say I am really enjoying the process and can’t wait to see my progress on day thirty. I really feel like a kid a again, so excited to learn and share.
