It’s been super busy for me in life recently. To begin with, I have a new job! It’s going to allow me the time to do some of the work I’m interested in. More on that later…
I found an old sketchpad. Well, I guess “new” would be more appropriate since it’s been in a cabinet unused for this entire time (5 years!). As soon as I started working with it, I knew it for what it was.
A damn great medium.
It allows me to give my markers an almost watercolor feel. That level of detail and control is exactly what I’m looking for.
Plus, now that I’m riding the commuter train again, it’s portable enough for my needs!
So I have a few weeks before #inktober kicks off and I expect to get in a lot of practice.
Luckily, my life seems to be making a turn. I’m holding out hope. 😊
Apparently, my family has big plans for my trip home on Thanksgiving. Personally, I’m just trying to lose enough weight to meet my end of year goals, but my mom has other ideas.
My work is coming along nicely. I can’t wait for this month to be over! There are a lot of reasons, with the whole issue of art projects being a small part.
I also have home repair, and several work projects that require travel. It’s as though life waited until #inktober to pile on!
Still, I’m a little amazed at my ability to juggle all of it. What was so daunting at the start of the month has become at worst a mildly exasperating endeavor. And I can see the end of the month rapidly approaching.
