This is it!

Updated: Sep 9, 2019

The place where I can freely share my travels, thoughts, challenges, and everyday life through sketching.


It’s been a few years since I shared my drawings.

I graduated from an associates degree in Graphic Design in 2003, I then did a bachelors and started a masters degree, which I decided to drop due to work in advertisement agencies being very time-consuming. I think I stopped sketching every day back in 2003. It’s now 2018, I have taken up drawing and doodling every day since 2012. I can’t possibly look back without saying that I have not gotten better. I was better. But now that I am consistently sketching more, I hope to improve.

I completed the Inktober challenge in 2017. My first challenge ever. And I did it in the middle of a crisis, which is an entire subject all on its own. I have also signed up for a few courses and joined sketching groups to keep me busy, inspired, and motivated.

What have you been doing to hone your skills, passion, and hobby? I’m curious.

I try to work very hard at what I do every day. I give my 100% to everyone I work with, my parents, my partner, and his children. There are only 24 hours in a day, and most days I feel like that is not enough. I wish days were longer! I could be doing so much more if only I had more daylight.

I want to share what I have been doing to better my skills in sketching, inking, and watercolor. The books, tools, websites, blogs, teachers, workshops, courses, conferences, and everything, everything that could mean something to someone. If that makes any sense.

So let’s just start by saying that if you don’t have a sketchbook: go get one. Any sketchbook, any size, format, or style. It does not even matter.

Just start somewhere. I’m staring here. Come along with me.

This is it.
