Last year I attempted to enter The Sketchbook Project, but with a new job, a lousy theme and no motivation, my sketchbook never made it on the bus (there isn't really a bus. At least I don't think there is.). This year I decided to try to enter again, thinking that I would have tons of free time over the summer while waiting for the birth of my little one, and thinking that I would have down time while Sweet A naps. Well, the summer is over, Sweet A is a month old, and I am just now opening my sketchbook for the first time. Such is life.
This year I selected my own theme, one that I thought would be very doable, In Ten Minutes. My intention was to sit down with the sketchbook, a pencil and an eraser, set a timer for 10 minutes, and see what comes out. It shouldn't be so bad, and entirely doable, right? It is only 10 minutes after all.
