At the risk of being a nag, if you’re still following this blog, you need to switch to Global Art Junkie. The archives of Sketches and Jottings are still here, but new posts are going up on the Sketch & Draw category of my other blog, Global Art Junkie. Hope to see you there.
All the pieces in Sveta Dorosheva‘s sketchbook series on Behance are excellent, and in so many styles. But this vignette jumped out as especially good. The whole Drawing for Fun series of this Israel-based illustrator is well worth browsing, as is her blog (in Russian).
The orange tones in the sketchbook of illustrator Amanda Schutz are bold and bright, which enhances her lively drawings. Her commercial work spans a huge list of clients, but the Moleskine has a big dash of personality.
Marcia Milner-Brage has been sketching for almost 60 years and this portrait of a junked truck in the Joshua Tree area of California shows her accomplished hand. From Iowa, she was traveling through the Mojave Desert when she drew the pickup. Go to Urban Sketchers Midwest to see more from the trip.
