Sketchbook 2016

In 2016, I finally remembered I like art. I like art. Oh my god, wasn't that the only thing I enjoyed doing in high school?  Other than rock'n'roll gender issues and video games, of course. 

It was hard to admit to myself that I let good skills go to waste. I was pretty dang good at art in high school. I did/do have a best friend who was a phenomenal artist, so that was always a blow to the ol' self esteem. But, yet, if I kept my nose on my own page and believed in myself, I could have an incredible skill set by now. Luckily, I've learned that I should believe in myself and now is better than never!

2016 is the first year in a long time that I maintained a sketchbook, it's  been around 10 years since I last had one. That said, here are my favorite pages from my various sketchbooks I tried in 2016!

(I have so many half filled sketchbooks now. omg. I should not be so picky about paper and size.)
