I love sketching animals and I’m always surprised by some of the thoughts and ideas they inspire each time that I do. As ever, this isn’t an episode specifically about animals, but about life itself and bits of inspiration that I’ve learned along the way. Thoughts that I hope will inspire you on your own creative journey. Though, sure, the little kid in me would be totally excited if it were possible to hold a conversation with a giraffe or a penguin. That would just be so cool!
What I DO know is that sketching stuff is a wonderful habit to have. No matter what’s happened that day, the moment I sit down to sketch is the best moment of all. And though I thought it would be an art journey all about learning new techniques, it’s become one about learning new ideas and ways to keep a positive outlook on life. I like to imagine that animals know a thing or two about life and are just keeping those sage secrets from us. In my childlike heart, I’m quite certain that there’s much we could discover, if animals could talk.
