When I sleep…

Susanna Porob

… my mind refuses to shut down. My tourist is just one of the characters out of the sketchbook I keep on my nightstand.

I drew this one by the light of my cell phone, in the middle of the night. Yes, very scribbly.
But its there. Its not lost forever. 🙂 The oldest tricks work. Keep a journal by your bed. Its when the best ideas happen. It was a habit when I was writing my unpublished books, and now its a habit when I’m drawing.

I wasn’t able to make it to IF this week. I’m working on the piece right now, see?

But there’s been too much going on in my life to ignore, and I didn’t want to rush what is going to be a portfolio piece.

I’m being brave and owning up.

I’ve caught myself doing everything possible to make it in time and then not working on all my other ideas.

Its time to pull out all the notebooks and sketchbooks from when I sleep… and remind myself of my priorities – which is to get my portfolio in place, and keep a close control on the frustration I’m feeling on the journey to doing it.

Back to the drawing board… literally. 🙂


About Susanna Porob

I love illustrating and illustrations. I enjoy seeing things from a child's perspective and giving children the eye-candy that draws them in
