This sketchbook is my therapist. Not this one specifically, but any single one small enough to fit in my pocket. I tell it everything, from quirky thoughts and funny notes to abstract concepts, drawings and positive reminders. Keep it analog folks… a doodle, sketch, writing, poem, or scribble every day helps to keep the brain fit and the thoughts flowing. ✏️
Quirky Botanicals and Friends Colouring Book. My first colouring book, all hand-drawn illustrations that started off as doodles -- as a way of destressing and relaxing, taking breaks from 'real life' and work. My form of joyful creative therapy! It's available at Amazon worldwide and Barnes and Noble online.
A few more pages from my DA sketchbook.
Father time is a classy guy
Willow's an oc of mine... she's very quirky. She's better suited to hanging out with the dead than the living. Also, super open to tips on this one because, as a beginner, I'm not amazing at diverse people. Like, black people have different facial structures and hair. Asian people have different facial structures and hair. So if I got something wrong, I'm open to redrawing that part. Just lmk.
Pattern made with a black Micron, a blue Micron and Liquid Paper on the back of a coffee cup sleeve.
These are a few pages from my DA sketchbook that I filled using only a blue pen and a red and a blue highlighter.

I should have made the legs way longer.this creature, despite not having any arms,likes playing pranks on people for example turning your hair purple (if you have a headless head then you're going to grow a long purple beard regardless of gender)or even making your nose humongous,though it's easily frightened by anything,if a person spots it,it quickly runs away with it's long,two legs.they run very quickly.to this day this creature has never been captured by anyone.
Pelican Queen gives a captivating rally speech to her subjects that are in her mind. Used some watercolor-pencils and some digital overlay.
i still think about you often and wonder what you're doing
I hate drawing hair
Just a little White-Out & Sharpie brought this yogurt to life!
Inktober day 1, Poison. I drew a octopussy on his head, but then he forgets to keep his mind on the really dangerous thing, the poisonous snake coming from the corner. Be aware out there..
daydreaming to have these kind unique botanical jugs or vas in my own home
New sketchbook time again? That it is. Credit to one of my workmates for inspiring the title here, hehehehe. It's been a busy few days here at Bleu HQ... '^^ :-)

I've been using this dot-grid notebook (which I originally I got with the intention of using as a planner - Thanks, 'Rona) to make random watercolor pages with my doodles. I can do this in a few minutes here and there to break up some monotony and build up a book full of just them.
We all come from different places and I wish I could visit them all.
Doodling is what I do. It's a way to make visible the randomness that's in my head - just drawing out a concept right when it comes to mind and scribbling on whatever I can find.
My assignment (for fun) after watching "The Art of Sketching" course by Mattias Adolfsson on Domestika.
Kind of like the Wacky Packages of yore.
