Things on my desk - Rowland's book

I really like the 'stream of consciousness' feel from Rowland's book. I let the things that I keep on my desk for inspiration / distraction guide me.

And here are the things on my desk.

Brilliant! Has a sense of potential - the creatve potential of the work that is made on your desk.

Thanks guys!! I was beginning to feel a bit left out :-)
I think I misunderstood the 'rules of the game' I thought the idea was to be 'stream of consciousness' so the two books that came to me were here only a week or two. I didn't realise that we had a month to play with them: but then maybe it's good that we all are different... some of you guys have produced the most amazing art-- I don't consider myself an artist- in Italy I describe myself as 'lo scarabocchiatore' the scribbler- and I don't think I'm putting myself down as much as 'setting out my stall' as it were so I'll probably do the same with the other books when they get here: it'll probably still only take a week or so! . . but then maybe not :-)
Happy sketching!!!!

The moleskines that fall in my hands are rarely worked on longer than a few hours, so don't stress Rowland. I find if I think too much about working in them I screw up. So fast is better.

Thanks... not stressed . . I know that some of the 'best' stuff I've ever done were 3 minute sketches in a life class when I'd just started back in 2004.

actually, there were only 4 days between the day I received EWian's book (2/14) and the day I posted the finished work and its video (2/17)... Rowland you are not alone!!
Now you know you don't have to finish in a hurry, but you don't have to use up the whole month either. :-)

loved seeing how the things on Jennifer's desk 'come to life' in her drawing. (those googly-eyed wooden creatures!! XDDDDDDDDDD)
