Hello World

My name is Shamus Collins. My wife came across a blog entitled "Creative Journey" by an artist named Myrna Wacknov. There is a link on that blog to another blog Myrna has created entitled "Drawn to the Mirror" and this is my point of interest. Myrna has set forth to create 365 days of self portraits that began on Jan. 1st. Well I am starting a little after the first of the year but I am going to make the same goal for myself. This sounds like a fun and inspirational way to force creativity. Let the fun begin.

With this one I think that I got a little carried away with the thick lines. Not exactly what I was wanting. Maybe tomorrow.

24/365 The quickest way is a straight line

This weeks sketchlings will be like none that I've done before. This week I will be focusing on line thicknesses and minimalism. Today's sketchling was all done with straight lines and in about 1 1/2 minutes.
