My talented illustrator pal Cheryl Oz and I have been teaming up for some daily doodling and sketchbooking. We've been playing around and holding each other accountable for daily doses of creativity. Here's a look at the good, the bad and the ugly from my sketchbook over the last two weeks.

My Black Sheep Valentine is in stock at last.

In 2013 I signed up for a challenge to read 50 books over the course of the year and enthusiastically dove in head first. However, let it be known that I am also a huge procrastinator. The reading challenge came into perfect alignment with my procrastination and I used reading as my number one procrastination device. (I also have an extremely competitive nature. Oy.)
I told myself, "How can reading be bad?" Well, there's a limit and I found that as I neared the end of the year, there were things I wished I had made time for over reading. I stopped the challenge in December with just three books to go.
This lead to my paltry reading of 14 books in 2014. I told myself that I could start a book on Friday, but had to be finished by Sunday so as not to get in the way of my work. This worked for a while, but I hit a string of disappointing books midway through the year and my reading of books dropped away almost completely.
Well, I'm ready to approach 2015 with a better attitude. I don't plan on fifty books this year, but I think I can find a healthier balance. I have a better handle on my daily work routine and habits and feel confident in my ability to stem procrastination. But I find myself a bit out of the book loop and am looking for titles to try. What have you been reading? What do you recommend?
I continue to keep my reading list here on the blog. Won't you follow along?
