Key Ingredients

I am still having fun drawing things.  Now before you think I am more talented than I actually am, one of the best things I learned from Andrea Joseph's 'zine  is to trace around objects to help you gain practice.  Since trying to draw things in proportion has always been the hardest part for me, I found this so helpful.  I have been tracing around all kinds of things, then filling in the details. 
 I eventually had to act like a six-year-old and start coloring things in.
I even tried drawing some notebook paper on the journal page. That was easy... just take a ruler, blue and red colored pencils, and draw lines! 

The hardest thing to draw was the pen I've been using.  It's hard to get that tiny writing on the drawing.  My pen is a Pentel Hybrid Technica pen (size 03).  I love it, because it has a hard metal point and has a very smooth ink flow.
