My other true love

I’m not really making any new year’s resolutions this year. For writing, I’m going to continue doing what I’m doing — listen to both my muse and my gut and try to write the best books I can that I hope my wonderful readers will enjoy.

The new thing I do want to do in the new year isn’t really a resolution, more of a rediscovery.

I haven’t always been a writer, you see. I went to college for graphic design and I did that for a dozen or so years as a career while writing on the side until I got more serious about the writing than the design. Before becoming a graphic designer I was really into art and drawing. I wanted to be an illustrator of children’s books. Or a fashion illustrator. I never really had the major talent for it, which is why I moved into graphic design instead, but I enjoyed sketching and painting and all of that. So that’s what I want to do in 2011 — as a hobby. I haven’t drawn anything in years so I’m going to get a sketchbook and doodle often.

So, I guess that’s my new year’s resolution — DOODLE MORE OFTEN. I think I can accomplish that without much of a problem.

Here are a couple of pieces I worked on back in the day that I still like….

Do you have a new year’s resolution? What is it? Please share. I’d love to hear about them!

    I used to draw, a lot, but I was told by an inept guidance counsellor that pursuing college in the arts was a waste of time. I could only draw portraits of people. Ended up as a Law Clerk. :P

    This year I’m learning to knit, maybe I should pull out the old sketch book and see if I have the knack still.

    I love knitting too, but oddly enough I find it stressful. Mostly because I always pick challenging patterns. LOL. Crocheting is good too…less stressful. ;-)

    Those are GORGEOUS! I’d like to read more, and maybe do more sewing.
