I decided it was time after 10 years of compiling and holding onto sketches that I've used for outdoor works, product designs, commissioned paintings, character studies, etc. to let a lot of it go... Going through the piles of sketches I've accumulated I was able to see my growth as an artist from where I started to where it looks like I'm heading. I enjoy seeing how a simple sketch/idea is the initial start of a foundation for something much bigger! All the sketches in the paper bag will be left for recycle and the smaller pile will remain for reference material when needed. I've provided some photos of initial sketches, some of which might look familiar to you. I'm looking forward to another 10 years of sketching and seeing what new things I can create that will end up being used in a painting, product or a future project.
