I've decided to throw away my fear of being an author/illustrator and just go with my gut, which is saying GO FOR IT!  I thought it would be fun to keep a sketching journal here on my blog, so here goes.

Last week I did a quick sketch of a cute little Gerbil (I thought it would be productive to make a grid on the photo and paper, but found that it took longer to make the grid than it did to sketch.  So I'm over that! Probably won't happen again.)

And here's my new friend sketched yesterday. (Awe, isn't he cute!)

Here's to trying new things and going with your gut!
