Smalls

In an effort to make more art, I always have a pencil case filled with unlined 3"x5" index cards, water soluble colored pencils, flair pens, mechanical pencils, black fine tip sharpies, micron pens and an aqua brush in my purse.

Whenever I have a few minutes  available, I start a small drawing with the micron pen or sharpie. These drawings can be random abstract wanderings, silly cartoons from my imagination or repeated themes that I'm always returning to. I call them my smalls.

They are a great way to keep the creative juices flowing and a way to make art 
even when I have NO TIME!!

When you're on the go, use flair pens to outline your image. 
Plain water will turn the water soluble ink into a flowing watercolor.
