Illustration Fri. - 'proverb'



pencil, digitally colored - sketchbook project journal, theme: 'in flight'

"Time flies....so you might as well hang on and enjoy the ride!" It's been next to impossible the last month or so to contribute over at IF as much as I've wanted to due to our recent move, so glad I could finally squeeze a sketch in after I found my journals this morning - the rest of the unpacked boxes and totes can wait :)

Sooo many ways to go for 'proverb', cultural, biblical, english - I found a list with 1000 proverbs here. I ended up using a classic one to suit the theme of my Sketchbook Project journal so I don't have a mad rush to finish it up by the January deadline. My theme is 'in flight' so this fit perfectly and I like that it's still in pencil stage right now (love playing around adding color digitally!) so I can work it more if I want.....

Also a few posts back I mentioned I switched out the thin paper in this journal for a thicker stock, one that I prefer. Here's how I did it, it's fairly simple but the text is kinda small so hope you get the gist of it:

Have a fabulous week!!

Hey this is a great tutorial! Thanks! It's too late for me to rebind it, but perhaps next year, if I do it again! :)
