Making Room In Your Day for Drawing

As I’m leaving my apartment to take my daughter to school and I pick up my book bag packed with my work materials (laptop, notebooks, pens, etc.), I see my black 8.5″ x 11″ sketchpad and wince knowing that the extra weight will hurt my back.

I am not a lower back pain person but because I carry too much, I’ve caused my back to smart a little bit.

I know my notebook is the match that will break this camel’s back. And yet, and yet…it’s got to come along.

My days are filled with obligations, rushing around and a lot of long stints of staring at a computer screen. If I want to keep up the drawing habit and drawing my cartoons, then the sketchbook must come. Yes, I could get a smaller size but honestly I don’t enjoy drawing in a smaller sketch pad. I’m used to the 8.5″x 11″ size.

I will make the time to draw and make sure to inconvenience myself a bit to make drawing more convenient.

xo,
Natalie
