Hooked On Books

Hooked on Books, Main Street, Penticton
Sketched this over my morning coffee, Yogi at my feet.  Hooked on Books, here on the right, is the newest store to carry my book, and they've invited me to do an event in their wonderful shop!  On September 23, 7-9 pm, I'll be doing a talk on waking up your creativity.  I'll be selling books, including handmade blank sketchbooks and covers.  Admission is by donation, proceeds going to 'Raise a Reader'.  I'm very excited about the whole thing.  If you're in Penticton come on down.

I haven't been blogging much lately.  My dad hasn't been well.  He's in the hospital in Kelowna, an hour away, and we've all been taking rotating shifts sitting with him.  He's 86 and has had a wonderful life.  It's hard to see him struggling now, but we're glad to still have him with us.  I've been so busy between working, sitting with dad, and putting together my new book proposal (more on that soon) that I've forgotten to go sketching lately!  Today was the first time I've dipped my brush in water since the Wells trip.  It felt good.  Sketching is always like a little brain holiday from everything else that's going on.  Love it.

More Travel Sketchbook Videos!

OK, making the video tour of Wells prompted me to go on a video making SPREE!  Here are some of my favourite old sketchbook journals, made into videos on youtube.  Fun!  Click on the journal cover and it'll take you to the video.

Walking Tour of Wells Sketchbook Video!

There's a new video on youtube of my time in Wells.  It's a sort of a 'Walking Tour' of the town, in sketches and drawings.  I hope you check it out.  It's about four minutes long.
