Update info: I had a Brain-Fart

I just wanted to mention a couple of things:

First, I started this blog with the intention of scanning all my sketchbooks to save them from damage. One of my first books was partially damaged because of my clumsiness--I spilled coffee on it. Also, putting my drawings out for everyone to see would encourage criticism and critiques of my art, which in turn would improve my drawing.

I've mentioned in previous posts, that drawing (and getting a late start with it) has changed many things in my life--All for the better! With this in mind, I set out this blog with the intention of collecting as many resources from the net that I could (and will keep collecting more) that would help anyone who wants to learn to draw.

With these two goals in mind, and some very fortunate 'blurfing', Graffiti-My-Blog was born. And it is my way of reaching the latter goal for this blog. But late last night, I realized that I forgot to mention one thing in the GraffitMyBlog Post. When I selected the walls that I wanted to use for this project, I specifically chose desktop backgrounds. When I was working through the idea for G-M-B, I didn't want just a link exchange program. I wanted something people would find fun and interract with, and participants would have something that they created themselves. Possibly even treasure. I knew right from the onset of this project that everyone submitting graffiti-ed walls is creating a piece of art. Their own art.

(In a guilt-free, non-destructive, rebel with a 'virtual' spray can kind of way---who could resist that temptation!!)

Being overly excited about posting the idea finally, I had a brain-fart, and forgot to mention that the walls were desktop backgrounds of 800x600 32bit hi-res graffics. I have larger pixel sizes of these graphics as well, but decided to go midrange to accomodate more computer users. So not only can you Graffiti-My-Blog to link exchange and help me reach above goals, but you can easily turn your graffiti, your art, into your desktop background. Sorry, when I do get excited about an idea, I go full boar, and brain-farts do happen (not often though, really!).

Thanks

Adult Colouring Pages Free to Download

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…
