Danny is best known for his book Everyday Matters which he talks about how he started sketching as a way to cope when his wife was in a terrible accident that left her a paraplegic.
The focus of all his books is getting people to sketch/journal about their lives as a way of recording/journaling and mediation.
It’s a topic that keeps coming up for me. I want to sketch/journal on a regular/daily basis but then I never get around to it. "real work" gets in the way etc. Well this year I am determined to make it a habit. You'll be hearing more on myblog later about that!
If you like the idea of bringing more sketching into your life, check out this free ebook from Michael Nobbs (who also struggles with chronic fatigue like me!). What I love about his web site and blog is that he shows how to work art into your daily life in tiny and manageable amounts. Sign up for his newsletter for lots of good tips too!
I'm impressed at your energy in class. Now even more so.
Thank you for sharing these great books..i'm off to look into purchasing them now. I'm just starting to get into mixed media creations and am very excited about it.
Many blessings, doreen
I too am a fan of Danny's books! Great stuff.
As for getting even a little bit of art in every day I created a journal for myself..two page spread in calendar form. Gives a small space a day and then of course if I'm into it..there's more room around the "day" spaces for bigger doodles. The pages are also made with watercolor paper as well, so I'm able to use whatever medium I'm in the mood for.
@ WW - your journal sounds amazing! you should sell those! I love the sound of that concept!
