We’re obsessed! And we don’t just mean with art supplies. Obsession is what Sketchbook Skool co-founder Danny Gregory is talking about in this week’s SketchBook Club.

Artists can become obsessed with certain subjects, drawing them over and over again, in different ways, using different media. As Danny explains, that kind of obsession can be a good thing; drawing something over and over again improves your skills and the way you see things. It gets you into the habit of drawing frequently, which has so many other benefits, like giving you that lovely calm feeling that comes with making art. That’s the kind of obsession we can get with!

Enjoy this week’s SketchBook Club, and tune in to the Sketchbook Skool News page on Facebook on Wednesdays at 5 pm EDT to watch live with the Sketchbook Skool community! If you can’t make it, SketchBook Club is posted here on the blog on Fridays.
