After a nice vacation for a couple of weeks, I’ve been (far too slowly) getting back to work. I have plenty of new art painted for graphic sets. That’s the easy part. The hard part – scanning, cleaning, promoting – I still have to do. So no new graphic sets here yet. Next week.
On a more fun note, I decided I needed a bit more time off and I started an art journal for the fun of it. I never make art for myself. It’s always for work or for a trade or for some course I’m taking. I think the last thing I painted just for fun was a couple of years back. Way too long. So I decided this would be the summer of art journaling. I made my own 8″ x 11″ journal and stuck in some nice Bristol board and some cool Stongehenge drawing paper (which I proceeded to paint on), stuck it all together with a pamphlet stitch and boom- one hand made journal with a small number of pages so I can actually complete it. Above is a double spread… pretty girls, my fave thing to paint. And the other two are pages about giddy excitement (new journal!) and fave imaginary creatures.
