I must make some marks

small sketchbook drawing by Stella Untalan.

I've really been unable to make any progress in my studio for the last two months. This is something new for me. It has never happened before. I'm internally motivated and I make lots of work all the time.

I've decided that I need to take some gentle action.

I started making small experimental sketches in my Moleskine. I've also decided to carry a couple more sketchbooks and pens in my art gobag.

This is one of the little sketches. I hope it will get me making new drawings. I can't keep these things in my head or they will die there. I need to make marks to let my brain and body connect with drawing.
