A Place to Call Home

Life surely is some sort of journey.
Many steps taken in one or different directions – over a lifetime – will take you somewhere. But is it the place you want to be?

I’ve found myself deliberately (and accidentally) in places, doing things that if I’d asked my younger self, I would have surely laughed at the question.

Regardless, here I am.
Luckily I’m still me, haven’t lost myself or my love of art.

Bedtime! The Best Time to Post a Blog <3

Interesting things happen when you decide to sketch for an hour or so before bed, instead of consuming YouTube videos.  When you decide to work instead of play.  Things get done.  The ball moves forward and you are that much closer to a goal.

I should do this again and see if I get similar results.

Sketchbook Neglected

Water-colorsss

Still haven’t finished my sketchbook cover.  Guess since it’s been hiding under a pile of papers and I haven’t seen it in a while, it hasn’t been nagging me to complete it.  :/

Canvas Sketchbook Cover

PencilsSMALL

Purchased a canvas covered sketchbook to take notes in my Ceramics class.  I thought it would be cool to be able to draw and paint on it and it was more durable than the other ones they had at Michael’s and more within my price range.  Too many pros to pass up.

Pencil sketch turned out pretty cool, I’m always of fan of creating a lot of depth and making overlapping panels gave me that opportunity.  Subject matter is a mix of things I just like drawing and some Sci-Fi/Fantasy elements I enjoy.

InksSMALL

Adding inks and experimenting with some water color pencils in the space scene.  Still not sure what I’m going to throw up in the empty panels.
