spring flowers and a little bit of a break...

I'm going to be taking a short break from blogging, I can tell I am going through a little bit of a creative block, and can't think of things to do and post right now, I have two projects I am working on to submit to magazines and that seems to be all the creative energy I have right now. I go through this from time to time and then the creative inspiration always comes back around so I will be back soon :)

My drawing notebooks

These are my drawing journals where I practice drawing flowers, usually from magazines and books and I'm also starting to incorporate more lettering ideas after seeing this image from Pam Garrison.

This afternoon I was looking at this april 1995 issue of Victoria that I bought on ebay and I was happy to run across an article about Aude Kamlet, someone who did a lot of illustrating for Victoria through the years and shes been an inspiration of mine and this article was about her garden journal so now of course I am inspired to start a garden journal this year. I've always done drawings in my sketchbooks but I want a journal where I also write down notes and lists and whats blooming when. It's just a little patio garden but I still think it will be a lot of fun and keep me busy this summer.
