A pile of drawings from the Winter of 2017.
I recently updated my Society 6 shop with some new drawings! They do an amazing job of printing, and I can't recommend their products enough. If you are interested in purchasing any thing from my shop, or another artist's you can click here to get $10 off your order.
In order to find my store after clicking through the link above, just search "Mali Fischer" :)
Quick little pattern doodle.
I had a fun time playing around with composition today. I was feeling pretty stuck drawing-wise, so I made some little doodles and then I arranged them in different ways on a blank canvas and came up with three different lil pieces! I guess this would be considered a digital collage.
I'm excited to share that the next issue of Maker's Magazine will have a cover illustration designed by yours truly! I also made some accompanying graphics, which I'll be sharing here once everything goes live. You'll be able to pick up an issue of the Magazine on July 5th.
Sometimes when I'm feeling stuck with drawing, I will fall back on collage as a way stirring my thoughts and reminding myself that it's all just shapes and lines.
A drawing for this Monday, on which I am thinking about what "success" means to me.
This last week marks the first of me being a full-time freelance illustrator! Mostly I am surprised by the fact that I have been so busy working on drawing projects for other folks that I have not had time to make a single thing for myself. To mark this new chapter in my life, I am committed to posting on this Daily Drawing blog more often - in fact I am hoping to prove its title true. Thank for stopping by :)
Lately I've been thinking about how arbitrary the idea of self-care is. I like doing it and I know it's important, but sometimes I get confused about it. At certain times in my life, self care is eating that hamburger, or sleeping all day. At other times in my life, self care is laying off the hamburgers and waking up early to face the day! I guess maybe the most important aspect of self-care is just knowing when to stop and when to go (as in, when to stop having a second glass of wine and when to go ahead and do it), it is the luxury of paying attention to what's best for you at that moment in time.

Some day I'll get there. 2017, ink and digital color
I went to life drawing and it was challenging to draw in a way I haven't for a long time - by actually looking at a thing / person, instead of drawing from my own head.
