2012 (the year, not the movie)

8:14 AM

It's 2012!
I feel like it doesn't have enough impact when you write out the numbers.
It's TWO THOUSAND TWELVE! 
It's like we're living in the future or something. 
We should all be flying around on hoverboards by now.

In honor of the new year, I've decided to pick up a new sketch project.
Now, at no point in 2011 did I think "Hey, I haven't been drawing enough lately" but I thought this would be a really cool thing to attempt so I'm doing it anyway. My friend Heather recently gave me a sketch journal that's designed to be drawn in every day for a year. The pages are small so it seems manageable, and for someone like me this seemed like an ideal way to journal. I don't know if I'll really be able to keep it up, but I wanted to give it a go! Here's my first entry:
I definitely rang in the new year with Diet Coke in my hand...That's how I roll.




 It feels a bit ambitious to add this sketchbook to my plate, but I love the idea of showing this to my kids one day - "This is what your mom was like in 2012..." And I turn 30 this year! 

It seems like a worthy year to keep track of. 
So I will.
