Inspiration Tuesday: Michael Nobbs

My pal Michael Nobbs suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and yet is a creative and productive artist. We had a chat recently about how he does it and how we can all use his techniques to get more done each day.

Michael is also a teacher in the newest kourse at Sketchbook Skool. If you would like to more tips, suggestions and perspectives from him and our other new fakulty, check out Expressing at

  1. I think about art all the time and draw in my journal often which I carry everywhere but Michael is right. I need to time things to refine things. I need to re-work my ideas. I have avoided that because it takes time. My sketches take ‘no time’. I think I need polish of some sort. People respect art that looks more polished.


  2. Very inspirational! And this was the last argiment for me to join the new course. As a working mother of 5-month-old one i thought thay I won’t find time to draw… but then i realised that I can sertainly spare 20 minutes a day 🙂


  3. I use the timer on my stove as motivation to get most things done. I need to create but I also need to make dinner. I too, only have so much energy for either. So, depending on the day I’m having, I set my stove timer for _____ time up on my feet for chores and______ time down in my seat for fun = create. It works most of the time. Baby steps.
