making time to draw...

I realized the other day I used to draw all the time. Any piece of scrap paper I would find would end up covered in my doodles. I'm sad to say I very rarely draw these days and I really want to change that. This Film & Mixed media class has shown me that I need to get back into the other arts that I love so much and not just graphic design. 

Well I'm in the process of opening up a shop of sorts... no, it's not my Etsy shop. Unfortunately, that is going to have to wait a little longer before I relaunch. But when it came to designing a store front, I decided to go back to the basics and get out my sketchbook :] 

I decided to go hybrid with this one and scanned it into Illustrator to shade. I had a lot of fun. It was a nice break from my usual designs and I can't wait to incorporate it into my "shop" which you should hear more about in the coming weeks. Until then, I think I will be caring my sketchpad with me more often so I can draw whenever. I love it! I just need to start drawing anything and everything! Any suggestions???
