I hit a bit of creative overload, so have been a bit of a slug for the past two days. In that same time (actually, since about 10pm last night) uber-spouse has painted five ... FIVE ... watercolors - including a riot of a kung-fu cat. He makes it look so easy. Makes me want to flick him. ok, not really, but I imagine some of you know what I mean.
I want, want, want to post pictures of what I ended up making as party favors for my birthday give-a-way. Unfortunately, I also want the treats to be surprises, so I have to wait. pisser. am hoping for some feedback on a couple ...
In the meantime, I found a really old "idea book". Seriously old ... it was from one of the very few art classes that I took back in the early 90's. I think it was a two-d class, so nothing earth shattering. A funny thing ... I pasted older sketchy type things in the book ... some from as far back as '87. EEK ... that's over 20 years ago! cuhrazy. I had forgotten about some of those old pictures ... like ornate, but cracked mirrors with odd reflections & those jagged cliff type sketches with a sigle flower or blade of grass growing up out of the desolate scene ... a few attempts at realism that aren't exquisite studies of perfection, but they aren't half bad (there's a rose that was done with a ball point pen that's actually fairly good) ... and letters/words - man, I must have done hundreds of thousand of letters/words throughout the years. It was nice to revisit the book.
OK, last night of sluggishness ... tomorrow I need to get started working on a few drawings for the 2009 Diary Project ... what I am thinking is that I'll pick my three favorite designs and then I'll let you lovely blogger buddies pick the one I submit. Yep. That's the ticket.
