Happy new year to all of my art friends! Hope it’s a wonderful year for everyone and we’re all very productive and successful with our artistic endeavors.
This year, I’ve signed up for a batch of online art courses. I was lucky enough to get the Art Bundle Bundle for Good this year and there are soooooo many wonderful workshops included that I’m a bit overwhelmed. I’ll work through those as I can. I’m also working my way through two year long programs, Book of Days 2018 with Effy Wild, and Moonshine 2018, also with Effy Wild. Both are focused on art journalling though BoD is more general art journal stuff and Moonshine has a witchy/pagan bent. They’re both looking amazing so far! I didn’t sign up for LifeBook this year. I did it last year (well, maybe a quarter of it) but with all of the other courses, I thought it might be too much. I still have to produce art to make a living and can’t spend all of my days on the super fun stuff! LOL. Above is the first journal spread for the new year, this one from Book of Days. My word for the year: ENERGY! Hope I can sustain it! I usually fade in February.
This January, I’m doing the Doodlewash Watercolour challenge! It’s 31 happy things to paint for the month of January. I’m a day behind already. Par for the course! But I’ll catch up tonight I hope. I usually do the 30 Paintings in 30 Days January challenge but that’s been postponed until February this year. Works for me! I can do it next.
Above are a few ATCs from various swaps and events over at illustratedATCs.com, my favourite trading place. I think I might make some larger versions of the octopus Art Nouveau hair. So much fun.
I’m participating in Art Journal Journey this year! My first post 🙂
