Creative Challenges into Creative Habits

LTieu-be-mine

I blogged about my daily doodle challenge for this year and I'm still going strong posting (almost) daily on instagram. There have been busy days when I forget or get to busy, but I can quickly pick up the habit again or sometimes I'm just not able to post but I still create my doodle. It's really ...

Doodle A Day Challenge for 2016

1 LTieu Work

This year I'm taking on the challenge to create a doodle a day and post it online for accountability. At first, it might seem a bit silly because if you create for a living, you probably already create every day (or almost every day). You don't really need to be challenged, right?

Doodling away variations of girls. A head here and a head there...brewing in my head! I think it's going to end up being a cute little print...

Peek Into My Sketchbook

Recently I made myself a new journal, simple longstitch binding and opted for a larger size - A4 full page - which is more challenging for me to "fill up." I used mixed media paper from Canson, so hopefully that will allow me to play with whatever medium I choose, day to day.   I've been trying ...
