There have been many times I've reached for my sketchbook at 10:30 at night, when I really just want to go to bed, and thought. that I really couldn't be bothered - but, showing more discipline than probably any other time in my life, I've done a new (non-work related) drawing every single day for a year.
It's been incredibly rewarding and the avenue for free and colourful creativity I wanted. I also have a valuable and personal record of my children (who invariably end up as my subject) which is a lot more precious than the thousands upon thousands of iphone photos.
Generally I'm feeling pretty pleased with myself.
And of course, I'm carrying on... day 367 and counting...you can see my drawing every day at www.instagram.com/jennybloomfield.
(It was suggested by some of my nearest and dearest that I 'just have a few spare drawings in reserve' for those days when I can't be bothered... but I didn't, every drawing was done on the day and I feel all the smugger for it.)
