Sketchbook Friday: Doodle Bobs

Often times when sketching (or attending meetings) I give myself little rules or guidelines to follow. These rules send my sketches in a very specific direction. I scanned the image in upside down, because that was the direction I created them. In this case, I took all of my notes from the meeting upside down and had drawing limitation on my sketches in regards to shapes and build of the little images. It was kinda fun to see what came out of the little experiment. I often challenge artists to restrict themselves with a set of rules, in order to problem solve creative ways out to solve the visual problem. Even if the outcome is less than astonishing (although sometimes it is), often times your mind will thank you, and perception can change about future art projects. I give myself homework all the time.

Each Friday at noon I scan in one new sketch or drawing from one of my many sketchbooks. Many times my sketches are ideas for larger projects that you might find on my fine art website William Hessian dot com, or as projects right here on my Bearded Bunny art blog. If you enjoy these sketches make sure to also see my Favorite 20 sketches from 2011 or go back and check out all of the sketchbook friday posts.
