Sleepy drawing tip and a timelapse
Sleeping Drawing Sessions
If we’ve spoken in the last 6 weeks, you’ve likely heard about my revelation about working while sleepy. Since I’ve joined Draw Brighton’s Patreon, I’ve been getting up at 3:50 am to draw with them.

I feel cruddy and exhausted that early in the morning. But also make some of my favorite drawings during those sessions. It’s like my inner critic stays in bed and I’m able to simply draw what’s in front of me without judging my choices. I’m not suggesting that you wake up that early to draw or work yourself sick. But next time you feel tired or don’t feel like making work, you may ask yourself “Is this an opportunity to explore?” Just see how it feels!

Drawing Vintage Cat Dads
I’ve found some glorious vintage photos of men and cats for the next drawing session, which is one week from today at 12 pm CST. I’d love for you to join!
Upgrade to get the replay and links to future drawing sessions sent right to your inbox. We’re only TWO patrons away from hitting my goal, which means a trip for Charles and me to Art Center, then I’ll create a bonus video for all tiers!
A series of short process videos: We use an empty storefront as a framework to create an illustration based on things we love -- fun!
A full tour & review of a 160-page sketchbook from August / September, along with a tour of my little red Moleskine.

Vote on what we draw next and when.

I LOVE sharing my process with you wonderful people. If you have any questions or would like to request that I share specific parts of my process, let me know!
Before I forget
Happy Gotcha Day to Vigo, the big, hairy cloud dog who I love to draw.
Thank you so much for being here!
