Foxxfyrre's Black and White Sketch Book is a spot of the web where I can share my drawings with you and share the journey I took while learning to draw. I started to draw at 37 years of age, and since then have fallen in love with drawing.
Because I love drawing and learned as an adult, I've put this blog to purpose of helping others to find resources to help them learn and start their own journey.

GraffitiMyBlog Wall #12
This next Graffiti wall is from houseband00, whose blog is entitled My Life with D (The Houseband Chronicles). Houseband00's blog is the most personal of the personal blogs that I have reviewed for Graffiti-My-Blog as yet. It is a very heart-warming, sometimes heart-wrenching stories of a single father raising a young son 'D', which he accomplishes by sharing music and lyrics, and poetry that he loves, and well placed conversations with close personal friends. Anyone, no matter if they are a parent (single parent) or otherwise, cannot leave this blog without being touched in some way. Touched by a person who truly shares the love he feels about life and child. I know that anything I type here will not do enough to express what is contained within My Life with D (The Houseband Chronicles), but it is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so between the sentiment shared in Houseband00's profile picture,
and the great work he has done on his graffiti wall, expresses it all better than I can.
Adult Colouring Pages
Adult colouring books are becoming more popular, and as their popularity grows so does the price tag. I just went and bought one for my wife and the price was well over $30 CAD. That's pretty steep as far as I'm concerned.
I bought it because I was hearing all the benefits of colouring for relaxation, mindfulness, and the like. I like to draw, and I am well aware of the benefits of drawing, but whether the benefits of drawing are similar in colouring I won't say for sure. You may want to read the article "Are You Having a Relationship with an Adult Coloring Book" in Psychology Today to gain further insight on the subject.
After paying the steep price for an adult colouring book, I thought I would search the web to find anything on the subject, and possible free to download colouring pages. And, well, there is tons of stuff out there. Two sites that I found are quite good and have lots of pages that you can download for free. Davidrd Colle…
