If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed that I have been sharing a lot of sketches lately. While I am battling the summer heat (eh ☀️😣) and found it too hot to work in my room, I have been sitting under the air conditioner practising character sketches. 🎨

I have never been confident with traditional art forms. Like any skill, you have to practice and experiment with different styles and mediums.

With my recent encounter with art-block in creating digital illustrations for my latest book, I thought I would take Mia’s advice and try something different. While my sketches are not related to my book, they have been a fantastic creative exercise.

“I like to experiment with a different medium, like try to do one of your illustrations in a medium you don’t normally use, watercolors, oil, vinyl, just doodle with pencil on a tiny piece of paper, color with scraps… try to get creative in a different way.” – Mia
