Advice about illustration.

Advice about illustration.

Here is a link to a post by Jackie Morris, with some good advice for the creative process. Jackie Morris is an artist, and book illustrator who lives in Wales.I love the full title of her drawing and art blog.  "Jackie Morris Artist - The Balance of life as an artist and writer living and working in Wales: or how to ignore housework".

I think her paintings and illustrations are absolutely wonderful, and enjoy her style of writing as well.

Her advise is for drawing and sketching but I feel it is so applicable to any creative process. As well the comments which follow this post, offer some good advise on working creatively.

I visit Jackie's blog regularly to uplift my spirit, and take in the atmosphere of her part of the world.
Click on the link,"Advice about illustration" above, to read her post. Maybe you will find that you will enjoy following her blog. :)  Jackie has another lovely blog called We Three Ginger Cats, authored by  her cats.

Wishing you a good weekend, and to my friends in the States a good long weekend, as you honour Memorial Day.

I have just been there, and definitely see what you like about it. It will be a place I visit in the future, too, for inspiration, and grounding.

Hi, Sandy,
I'm glad that you enjoyed Jackie's blog.
I love the chance to read about her work, and as well her life in Wales.
I hope you have a good long weekend. Here it is quite rainy.

Oh, I love the look of her studio! Reminds me of my mom when she painted, stuff everywhere!

It's so true about drawing all the time and I think that goes for any creative process that we have an ability and interest in. Flexing the creative muscles makes them stronger. ;<)

PS: It's really hard to read these security words Brenda. Have you considered unclicking the need for these? I did weeks ago at both my blogger blogs and haven't had any problems.

Ger,
I'm really glad you had fun looking over at Jackie Morris's blog. :)

Hmm, I never know from one day to the next if there will be security words for Commenting. I will try to unclick these.
Thanks for letting me know, I too prefer not to have them.
