Sketches

So I finally dared drawing in my brand new sketchbook. Hardcover, good binding, good paper. I thought I was over the days in which I wouldnt dare to draw on good paper. But no.

I havent been very inspired this last week. But I decided I had to get over it. I went through some of Stanchfield´s notes again, man is he inspiring, and a new sketching day begun today.

I really tried to concentrate in capturing the pose, forgeting about folds and details. Just the esence. Well, not that Im there allready, but I kinda feel today was a small step. And that feels good.

Do you feel good because you draw or do you draw because you feel good? I still dont know.

So here are the ones I like the most.

This time, instead of puting the sketchbook back in the bag while transfering buses/metros, I kept it in my hand ALL the time. And did it pay-off. I felt like a sniper scouting for my next victim.

I hadnt though of the psycological value of the size of the sketchbook. This one is way bigger than the last one and it shows, its obvious you are drawing, I couldnt hide it behind the backpack anymore. Now it feels like "HEY, look at me! Im sketching!"

Hope you like them. And comments are really apreciated.

Terrific post Germán!
Nice drawings and great that you broke in a new sketchbook with them. It's encouraging to see your successes!

Sometimes it is hard to find inspiration, but I do the same--there are few better comforts than getting outside and bravely scrawling over good paper!

I like your sketches. They are at once familiar and comforting, and yet new. Thanks for sharing.
