Ah, January. Not only is it a lovely sounding word, but it is a satisfying time to start a 31 day challenge.

This month I’ll be sharing a series of rough drafts of vignettes that will be preliminary sketches for larger, colorful illustrations. Not all of these sketches will make it into final artworks, but this way you will be able to see some of my mistakes and progress along my journey.

A vignette is an impression, an observation and a moment in time. Not quite a poem and not quite a story.

In January of last year, I created a series of story ideas on notebook paper that I rarely shared with anymore. Now, one year later, I’m building on those ideas, and sharing them here with you.

Cheers to a creative and art filled New Year!
