February sketches

Whoa! I completely skipped posting my daily sketches and didn’t even realize it. So, here is an update of some of my favorite Hobonichi sketches from February. Part of my problem is that I am forever feeling self conscious about my sketches. And the Hobo has proven to be a personal space (which I love)….

Shiny new things

Since I decided not to buy a cover for the Hobonichi I was worried that it would it would get messed up hanging out in my bag. I found this Diary Pouch at Baum-kutchen and it’s perfect. It carries a few pens in the zipper case and the Hobo fits nicely in the main pocket….

Week one with the Hobonichi

My first week was spent trying to figure out exactly how I was going to use this little journal. I also spent some time obsessing over covers. Apparently, the company makes limited edition covers each year and they sell Out pretty quickly. There were a few still left at the Hobonichi store but I decided…

Happy New Year!

My interest in drawing has been very up and down this year. I haven’t picked up a pen in a few months. I had some knitting projects I wanted to finish and so drawing took a back seat. For Christmas I received a drawing instruction book for pen and ink and it renewed my interest….


Ahh. Nothing like a little getaway to reset. This has been a fun weekend at the beach. 

A perfect day

I haven’t had much time for this lately, and I’ll admit that I started the page for June 3rd three days ago. But it was nice to finish it. I need to remember how fun and relaxing these are. 


I finished a sketchbook!! I haven’t done that in a long time. This particular one has gone through many stages and styles. It’s a Traveler’s Notebook insert – the one with extra thin paper. I’ve been really impressed with how it was with ink. It has worked well with my Day In Comics drawings.  I…

I got a little lost

I sort of skipped doing this for a week! But I think I’m back. Maybe. Anyway, here is May 9th and 10th.

Meditation and a Pinhole Adventure

I spent all day on Sunday at a silent meditation retreat. We had an hour break that we could spend (silently) doing whatever we wanted to so I sketched. I figured it was meditative so it fit right in with the plan of the day! On Monday, my husband and I went on a little…

Wine 🍷 and whiskey 🥃 

I’m finally finding time to post here after being busy. Here are a couple days from last week, Friday and Saturday.

May the fourth (be with you)

Here are May 3rd and 4th. A couple of beautiful days spent indoors working. I finally unpacked my bags from vacation and looked at my new old camera. I also tried drawing a tiny self portrait. 

Back to the daily grind

Here are yesterday’s and today’s moments. They were busy days. Yesterday was spent on planes, trains, and automobiles. Today was spent on my feet all day doing RFID tagging at the library. And then laundry when I got home. I’m exhausted. 😴
