Saturday Share: Lisa Congdon & Creative Bug

Saturday Share. My new weekend ritual. Lisa Congdon is a talented and popular illustrator who has a worth ethic that will inspire anybody to get off their butt and get drawing and creating. Lucky for me she happened to be hosting a four week Creative Bug video class on Line Drawing that I signed up and took. I allowed myself to copy in my sketchbook for a little while while I got back to my own voice. Copying really gets an unfair rep when it is such a good way to master skills. My six year old daughter loves to copy me and everything she sees. That is how she learns, learning by doing. The trick is to make sure you keep going into your own voice eventually. So I copied Lisa for a day or two in my sketchbook. But soon enough it got for me to copy and I was forced to find my own way and that is where I am at right now. It is a great class, especially the first two lessons. I highly recommend anybody that likes to draw to sign up for it.
