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.

Back From Long Hiatus
I started this blog in 2006 to post some of my drawing and hopefully get some feedback on my art. I got busy. Blog got busy. Blog took many different directions. I had fun with it.

I take suggestions well, especially when they can help improve my drawing.

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…
