SKETCHBOOK FURY - THE ART NINJA'S GUIDEBOOK - LESSON 2 OF 4
Your sketchbook is your training ground where you practice your moves - your idea garden.
Come along with us as Graham Smith shows you how to plant your ideas in your idea garden and let them grow.
He'll show you how to experiment, practice, record ideas and develop them. It's your rules & your ideas. You don't need to show anyone.
LESSON 2 of 4 - OVERCOME FEAR:
We'll look at how to overcome creative blocks AKA perfection paralysis or white page fever.
One of the biggest fears is not knowing what to draw. In this Graham gives a list of advice on what you could draw (people on the train, every fruit you ever ate, expressions your pet makes, etc). In general, DRAW THE WORLD AROUND YOU. The more you dive in and draw a subject, the more you understand it, and the less you fear about it.
Don't let perfection paralysis get you. Not everything needs to be perfect. Just start, keep practicing, draw something every day, and your drawings will vastly improve.
STRIVE FOR CONTINUAL IMPROVEMENT, NOT PERFECTION.

Thank you for your advice. It's funny that I started drawing daily the beginning of this year with the contract to myself to finish what I draw wether it sucked or not. You are right tho that I was focused more on improving than what I am producing. After 3 months, I felt that my drawing has dramatically improved and seem to understand the art instructional better. Like u said, it's always about getting better.
My problem with sketchbooks is my perfectionist syndrome. I just can't use my sketchbooks sloppily, messy, dirty way. Goos sketchbooks are expensive and I'm constantly afraid of wasting pages. My sketchbook has to be neat, pretty, filled with nice drawings, pleasant on each page when I go through. So this results me not experimenting much. I got a cheap sketchbook to use fearlessly, but when I'm on my cheap sketchbook then I'm afraid of drawing something too good in it which I'd rather have it in one of my pretty sketchbooks. I might have some kind of OCD idk. LOL
I've been drawing since I was little. I don't do it as often as I would like. Still I draw a lot. Not everyday and that's what I need to do. Draw everyday. I'm way to structured. I'm just like that. I'm learning to let go.
thank you so much. You inspired me so much today...i have started my sketchbook finally to submitted but first time without fearing about the outcome. thank you so much for so many motivational and inspirational words!!!
Man, I can't thank you enough.... I've been struggling for a few months now just trying to get started. Every time I got frustrated I would head to one of my local art supply stores and buy a new sketchbook, different from what I have, hoping it would inspire me... The result, I have a shelf full of brand new empty sketchbooks that I'm going to start filling and making my own... Part 1 gave me so many great ideas for doing that.... Again, cheers, much appreciated.....
