Being the first artist was a little intimidating. Open the book and it's the first thing you see! Late in the process, I decided to scrap the idea of a landscape painting. Instead, I wanted to inspire... but at the same time...convey a message for each artist that opens the book for the very first time. Getting in there and and attacking those pages! Blessing each blank page with their creative minds and talent. Then came the idea of the first 2 pages being seen as one huge entrance way. At the same time, a bold warrior is pointing towards the massive door, telling you:

"Get in there...and DRAW!!!"

Stay tuned, up next.....Inking :D

Thank you so much for commenting on my sketchblog.
I'll sketch on my moleskine sketchbook still, but I'll do water coloring on a different watercolor moleskine. ^^ I love your work too!
