Sketchbook page - charcoal, paper

So one of my new years resolutions was to just draw more, for fun, with no real end result in mind.  As a freelancer I am always thinking "but how can I make money off this?" and sometimes lose sight of drawing for the love of it.  So here we go, drawing for fun, just because I can. Click on image for a larger clearer version!

This page was done in different charcoal pencils, willow sticks, Conte sticks... I don't think I've used this type of equipment since college! It was fun, and messy, and relaxing, which is the whole point of this exercise. Hope you enjoy this peek into my sketchbook!

Love the baby bird.
Also intrigued by the mechanical bird. Well done!

Funny enough, I know I said this was just for fun, but I think I will be making the baby bird into one of my paper birds, I love him too!
