This drawing started as a sketch of an eye. It was based on the photograph taken last week of Tripod lying on my Moleskine sketchbook and like some sketches, it has evolved and continues to do so, moving into a drawing now, given time.
This cat seems to lend himself to drawings, he has that kind of appeal about him. I have a few ideas of a series of mini portraits of him to play with in the future.
In the first day of the new year, I have lots of ideas spinning around in my head about what I want to achieve in 2007. In another post I will elaborate more on those goals and how achievable they are. This is part of a marketing newsletter that arrived in my mailbox today and the quote seems rather appropriate for today.
What are your dreams? I haven’t seen the movie “The Pursuit of Happyness,” but I’ve seen the scene in the trailers in which Will Smith talks to his son about his dreams. He says:
"Don't ever let somebody tell you you can't do something. Not even me. All right? You got a dream? You gotta protect it. People can't do something themselves, they want to tell you you can't do it. You want something, go get it. Period."
