Sketchbook Edition 11: New chapter
- this is your fairy tale with illustrations
To write and draw. To live through a difficult period on paper and reduce the level of anxiety. To write a little fairy tale and leave a mark in your history.

I wrote and drew the book, which became my second passport and opened up many new opportunities for me. And I know how important is to have support and faith, to know that you can.
You can write your own story.
And draw illustrations for it.
You can give the World a piece of yourself, pass on the experience to a new generation and inspire someone not to be afraid to open their hearts.

You can create your own little world. A calm and joyful place where your ideas can take shape and meaning.

I prepared 11 tasks for you, that will help you step by step write the story and draw illustrations for it.
Just take my hand and trust my experience. We can do it together.

Kind bonus:
Meditation "The Tree"
For all participants of any level of Sketchbook Edition, access to my author's meditation "The Tree" will be given as a gift.

Our loved ones often don't believe in us. And we stop believing in ourselves. This meditation will help you realize that your power and light are within you. These are not affirmations like "I can do anything", this is a visualization of inner strength. Just put on your headphones and imagine everything I'm talking about. Let go of your skepticism and open your soul to your inner light.

You are unique. There is a great power within you.
It's time to realize it.

Sketchbook Edition - is a big cup of tea, the warmth of home, the rustle of paper, and the touch of pencil on a rough surface. These are lively lines, lively inspiration, and a moment.

When you don't need to compare yourself to anyone; when you are trying to do your best; when you can let go of your hand and allow yourself to create.

When you are not afraid to spoil the spread but allow the lines to flow smoothly from the soul to the paper.
In simple words
Sketchbook Edition is my author's marathon, which takes place on a closed site.
I come up with tasks to inspire you, you draw and write a fairy tale.

The marathon helps to start drawing after a break; if you have some art blocks; if you have never painted or if you want to draw something new for yourself.
Draw without stress!
There are always special people at the marathon who will give you support, there is no competition.

Sketchbook Edition is NOT a course or a competition.
This is only for you, for your Soul, and time for yourself.
Take your mind off and finally find time for creativity.

The primary goal of the marathon is to draw with lively materials in a sketchbook, but do not limit yourself. If you want to draw on a tablet - draw.

IMPORTANT: keep it simple! This is a marathon about light, simple illustrations. Don't force yourself to draw full book spreads, let your hand go. The main thing is the idea.
Once in two days...
From June 1 to June 22, on the closed site, you will have new tasks for drawing and writing a fairy tale, and music for inspiration.

You choose the time for drawing by yourself - it can be an hour for a day, it can be 20 minutes.

There are 11 tasks in total to write a fairy tale and draw illustrations for it.

Children can participate too.

You may need any tools that you enjoy working with: pencils, markers, watercolor, liner, and, of course, a sketchbook.

ATTENTION: From 1 to 22 June 2022 - the active phase of the marathon
Until July 1 and August 1, 2022 - access to tasks is open, depending on the tariff. Do not put off creativity, create together with a big team!


Will you go on a creative journey with me?

Common questions
And answers :)
1
I am bad at drawing. Can I participate?
Yes! Everyone knows how to draw in their own way :) SKETCHBOOK EDITION is not a competition, not a competition for professionals, this is a time for yourself and for your soul. Every day, along with the tasks, I will show a lot of inspiring examples, because the main thing is to try and not be afraid! Perhaps, despite your thoughts, you CAN draw :)
2
When the access to the tasks will be closed after the end of the marathon?
Access to materials will be closed on July 1 and August 1, depending on the participation tariff. The main thing - is not to postpone, but to draw together with the team, less perfectionism, more tries, mistakes, and growth! Access to tasks will be issued strictly according to the marathon schedule:

From 1 to 22 June 2022 - the active phase of the marathon
Until July 1 and August 1, 2022 - access to tasks is open, depending on the tariff.

After the specified deadline, tasks are closed for all participants, even if you forgot or did not pass the marathon.
3
If I will miss the day, will I be suspended?
Absolutely no. No one will stand over you and control your inspiration. Just try to find at least 15-20 minutes a day for the task, for example, you can rotate tasks with texts and illustrations, or you can do it all together. You will see that daily practice opens up a second wind.
4
Are there any age restrictions?
No, children can participate too. During the marathon, we will not draw any "adult" themes, and I do not use any "bad" words in my posts :) Also, in the marathon, we did not raise the topic of war, but if you want to get through this difficult period of life on paper, you can write a fairy tale and draw illustrations based on your experience, events, and emotions. It is only your choice. The main thing is to listen to yourself because the primary goal of the marathon is therapy.
5
What tools and materials should I use for a marathon?
Pencils, markers, watercolors, ballpoint pens, gouache, pastels, whatever your heart desires! For example, I love working with colored pencils. Budget and ideal for sketching option for me - MARCO. More expensive - CARAN d'ACHE. I usually choose soft or watercolor. Any sketchbook is suitable, you can even use office paper or craft paper for sketches - it's only your desire. My advice is to continue the existing sketchbook, in this case, you will not suffer from perfectionism. For those who want to make the marathon period really special, you can go and get a fresh sketchbook with yellowish or white thick paper, or a watercolor one. Before the start of the marathon, you can draw a beautiful cover of SKETCHBOOK Edition to end up with real beauty.
6
Can I draw a digital illustration during the marathon?
No one can forbid you to draw digital illustrations, it's only your choice. But in general, the marathon is aimed at fighting perfectionism and finding lively lines when you feel the material and the rustle of paper.
7
What equipment do I need for a marathon?
Phone or computer with access to the Internet. You can open the tasks from the phone. We also invite participants to join a closed WhatsApp chat, this is optional, so you can install WhatsApp for yourself.
