January Sketchbook Roundup


January is over which means I'm officially one month into my 2016 sketchbook "resolution" and I'm actually loving it. These little paintings have been so much fun, and I have some exciting plans for the February sketchbook. Until then, enjoy this little gathering of my first month of sketchbook paintings.

If you've been following the sketchbook project on Facebook or Instagram you may have noticed that quite a few of these were inspired by books. Here's the list of my recommended January books, all in one place for your convenience.

  • Hatshepsut - "The Woman Who Would Be King: Hatshepsut's Rise to Power in Ancient Egypt " by Kara Cooney
  • From Libya to Mars - "How We Got to Now: Six Innovations That Made the Modern World" by Steven Johnson
  • A River of Stars - "Bridge of Birds: A Novel of an Ancient China That Never Was" by Barry Hughart
  • Snowy Nights in Narnia - "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" by C.S. Lewis
If you decide to read any of them, or already have read some of them, let me know what you think!
