Something a bit different for today's daily sketch. After all it's the end of January (already jeez!!) and time to look back and see all the drawings I've made this month. I'm happy that I'm sticking with this - one drawing a day.
When I was a child I would like to have a blue room, with dark blue walls. Instead I had pink blankets and after I had a yellow period with yellow curtains and matching blankets and pillows over the bed. I can't complain, I love it. But the blue walls was really what I wanted. Now a days I'm happy with my white walls filled with postcards and other memorabilia. My room lingers between wood, neutrals tones a lot of blue hues! I even convinced my grandma doing me some granny squares blanket with three blue colours! I love it, it's one of my precious possessions!
Lately I've been trying to be minimal in colour in my work. Sometimes works, others don't. I'm not 100% happy with this drawing but I had fun doing it and that's enough for today.
I've also made a quick video showing a bit how I put colour in these drawings

if you want to know what's been going on check Thursday Bits on the Nuts for Paper blog. And after that well it was flu time for me :( At least I feel good again to draw.
Today was a long day that I've spend away from the computer. But I still managed to do this little baby.
Today I'm feeling like this, with my head on the clouds. I like this drawing, I might do an illustration based on this. It's not the first time that draw something over the head on the clouds theme, you can find it here - Cabeça nas Nuvens.
Today I'm feeling so under the weather. I'm with cold, I couldn't even think about drawing or do much actually. But I manage to convince myself quickly paint a previous sketch. The 3rd of the year.
At least this brighten up a little my day.

this year i decided to challenge myself. last year I've drawn a lot, and really like it. so in 2014 I wanted to step out of my comfort zone and make a drawing per day. that doesn't mean I will post all days, but I will make a drawing per day. doesn't need to be big, finished, or fancy. but something.
this represents well the past few days. it's cold outside, and it feels good to rolled out in blankets reading or writting. I've also recently read "Blankets" a graphic novel by Craig Thompson (i love it).
