1. Unravel your year
Every December, Susannah Conway, author, photographer, and teacher, releases a workbook called Unravel Your Year. The workbook has become part of my end-of-the-year ritual.
"When I feel I’ve given the passing year a thorough assessment I want to start weaving my intentions for the shiny new year heading my way! I’ve been sharing the Unravel Your Year workbook, in various iterations, for over a decade, and it continues to be something I love sharing." -Susannah Conway
The workbook is wonderful for creative folks. You can download it for free on her website. This year's version has three sections; a review of the previous year, looking ahead to 2022, and a 2022 monthly planner.
2. Drawing Tips
Here is a 7-minutes video of drawing Tips from Aussie Jon Lovett.
"I like to get in a few fairly light confident lines in and then sort of strengthen the ones that work. The ones that don't work, they can stay there, it doesn't really matter. They sort of add something to the character of the drawing."
