Drawings from my sketch book are a visual diary. When I look back on them I can vividly recall what was going on at that point in my life.
This Particular time I was sketching daily. Pencil drawing always bring me great pleasure, whether they are mine or others.
Whether your a professional or a non-artist (which I don't believe. I feel everyone is an artist), try sketching daily and see what comes up. And then a month from now look back at your sketches and see what memories emerge.
sketching goes deeper than just written diaries; touching a primal place within our being, before words even came out of our mouth.
