getting back into the swing of things

I'm probably not going to say sorry for not blogging as I think a wee break is often what is needed to go away and live a life and come back with some good content.  I have however been working away on a new spring collection of drawings  developing my style and just getting back to enjoying my own work.

I have made a point of working in my sketchbook, I picked a few cheap ones up while I was recently in Manchester, I haven't work this prolifically in my a sketchbook since University, it's been nice to get all the ideas from my head onto paper and into one place.I have really enjoyed working from life, drawing buildings and colourful cars whilst I have had a few meetings in London. I have been finding it hard recently to stay inspired and with the overload of social media i have been finding the ability to stay focused and confident in my work rather hard.I think that's why I have gone back to working in a sketchbook and just getting back to basics is the best way to shake the insecurities off.

I am looking forward to  sharing my favorite sketchbooks in the next few blog posts.
