I haven’t been very artistically productive this past week or two. I know the amount of images in this post say otherwise but it’s honestly been a hard slog to be creative. I think I am feeling the depressing effects of a too long winter. I feel a bit zapped of energy and creativity. I did head outside today though and went on a nice and long Pokemon walk (am I the last person still playing?). It was sunny but holy cold wind! Ouch! I am so ready to see something green growing in my garden. Hope the weather in your area is treating you well.
I like zombies and I like Marie Antoinette and lucky for me, others want to collect art like this so I get to make it! It’s always fun to create zombified beauties. The bloody beauty above is done in acrylic paint over top a book page. And below are some of the drawing practice sketches I did over the past couple of days. It’s been a while since I sat down and just sketched and it felt good to do a bit of mindless drawing without having to come up with concepts and ideas. I’m going to continue on tomorrow. Practice always makes me feel better.
And finally, a set of portrait ATCs for a swap on IllustratedATCs.com. Some of the portraits are personal but I’m sure you might recognize one or two others. These are all marker or coloured pencils. I love to use them when I have time since they seem to take ages for me!
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend! And sunny, warm days.
