Time to look back at a year of drawing. I spent yesterday compiling this video, complete with soundtrack, courtesy of Josh Woodward. It’s really beautiful and adds feeling to the random, mostly chronological succession of sketches. It’s a great exercise though, this compiling thing, because it helps me to see a year’s effort in a flash.
I keep a rough count in my sketchbooks as the year goes by, and 2014 came in at about 1049 drawings, substantially more than last year, which I was not expecting. The burnout and depression of late summer really slowed me down. When I look back, there’s was more joy and excitement last year, I think; more ambition and determination this year. 2014 was also the first full year of daily drawing. I wonder what 2015 will bring?
