My sketchbooks are where I put down my most intimate and uninhibited ideas. It is my meditation and self reflection. I think I am more fearless here because it feels less "permanent." Over the years I have learned to cherish these pages in my book and really let go. It's difficult to get in the studio most nights ... so my sketchbook is my sanity.

You see, art isn't just my "hobby" or my "second income"'s home. Since I learned to mark with a pencil I have not stopped (well except that one time I got tired of realism) but anyway...It's my safe haven.

I started a little project and would LOVE it if you all could help me :)
I want to draw but looking for pictures takes me FOREVERRRR. Seriously. It takes all the fun out of it. So I would like to ask anyone who would like a little sketch done of them to hashtag a picture of you with #karinalove_drawme on your Instagram account.

If you hashtag a picture of you (not some supermodel or your pets lol) I will do my best to be fair to everyone and do about 4 sketches a week. I will caption your picture with your IG name if I post it here and mention you in the IG post as well. Only rules are: It has to be you or your photography and your pictures cannot be private (or I can't see them). Btw, it doesn't have to be a brand new pic.
It would mean a whole lot to me so go hashtag #karinalove_drawme on your pretty pictures now. :D

with love,

ps: hashtagging does not mean you give me full rights to use your images in my personal artwork. I will contact you if I want to request a picture for a painting :)
safe haven
