Yes friends, Saturday morning mama comics is back by popular demand!
I wasn't planning on making this a 'regular' series... (since last's week silly sketch was just a fast, funny, rant about this stage of motherhood) but so many of you kindly encouraged me to keep up the sketching, so here we go!
Confession: I never draw.
For years the dust has collected on my many sketchbooks.
I only, ever, paint.
Filling canvases, not paper, with my creations.
As a child/teen I used to draw constantly... cartooning a lot.
So this is sweetly nostalgic for me to embrace again.
I'm now realizing that this is a delightful way to get a quick 'creative-fix' too!
While the kids are playing (nicely) for a nano-second... I can do a fast sketch.
No clutter of paints to unpack.. or sewing machine to heave on the table.
So now I keep sketchbook and pen at the ready.
I like the 'all out commitment' of using ink.
Pencils make me hesitate.. adjust... fix... slow down.
What you see is what I drew - with no parachute!
Oh, and hunched over the sketchbook - with tongue sticking out - is more how I roll.
Now, I won't promise that this will be an every.saturday.comic.series... unless I feel so inspired!
But I plan to keep using 'real life' events/comments made by our family as the fodder.
Which is why I kind of love this project - it records all the hilarity that is our daughter, and inspires me to get sketching again!
Thus... I shall name it "A.musing.mama!"... get it?
(Don't worry I think I'm funny... even if no one else laughs).
*Speaking of funny.. stay tuned for Monday Mamalogues where I share just a few 'extras' of the crazy things our girl says... she just keeps cracking us up!*
Have a fun-filled weekend friends!
