Lately...in my sketchbook
I have no clue why I'm filling this year's sketchbook with polar bears. Really, I don't. I just like them. Their anatomy, their movement, the fact that they're not black or brown. Years ago, it could be already ten, I drew this very simple sketch of a polar bear somewhere on a blank spot in the left corner of my sketchbook next to other scribbles and doodles. I didn't think much of it at that time but now I think it's one of my best sketches ever. Just because it's so simple, has no shadow, just some lines. I think the feeling I've got when I look at that drawing makes me drawing polar bears again. Even though I drew many (and another page) this year, none of them top the one from my early drawing days.
