foot, shoe and earth

sometimes i like to sketch. sometimes i have an idea in my head, and other times i just want to sit in front of the blank canvas and see what will come out. this is something that actually started off as a landscape, turned into a UFO, and then came in to land as a foot, or is it a shoe? or the earth?
since my camera is being an oaf these days, i have decided to start doing more illustrations again since it used to be one of my favorite things to do. i’d like to start doing it more again.
i am going to Union Bay this weekend (on Vancouver Island) and i am looking forward to seeing some new sights and capturing them in my mind. i am a ways off from feeling like spending enough time to do a full landscape illustration, but i can feel the urge coming as i start to consider honing my illustration skills again. my doodles have returned to me and with them a desire to create visually from the head. not instead of photography or anything, cause i really think the two go together.
gotta go, more work to do ..
