Matthew Laurence February Sketchbook

This is my contribution to Andrea Hendrickson's sketchbook titled "I hear it in the deep heart’s core".
It is a collaboration of my 3 year old daughter Naomi, 6 year old son A.J., and a sketch my me. 

I started a drawing on the right with the shadowed figures and while taking a break, my daughter decided to add to it, so in going with the flow I decided to let my son play as well.

Hope you enjoy-

Becky makes a mess in Robin's book, "Inspiration"

Robin Balshaw's cover of her sketchbook titled, "Inspiration" asks, "What brings you joy? What inspires you?"

When we travel, I take pictures of tiles, designs, carpets, and textiles. The patterns and colors inspire my doodling. They definitely bring me joy. For Robin's page, I looked at photos of Spanish tiles, Indian rangolis, Suzani embroidery, Tibetan carpets, and Tunisian rugs.

The result, quite frankly, is a bit of a mess:
But it was fun!
