Just a quick comic page from my sketchbook, drawn late at night after I couldn’t think well enough to write anymore.
In case you, like many of my friends, are Canadian or otherwise not familiar with the East Coast of the United States, D.C. is an hour further south than Baltimore. Also, geography is not taught in most public schools.
Lately I’ve just been carrying around a watercolor set, sketchbook and a paintbrush and busting out sketchy little comics and doodles whenever I have a moment, not really about anything. My fingers are itching for when I have time to work on bigger things!
I’m also still blogging over at Lazy Femme, and am in the process of doodling these little “Dear Abby” heart author portraits. They aren’t very consistent so far, but I do like both of them.
I just got back from a week in Tennessee and Kentucky, which I wrote a little bit about at Lazy Femme. From an art perspective, it was amazing having a weekend at Ida with some of my greatest heroes and buds, feeling inspired and challenged to push harder and try new things. I’m mostly going to be sketching for the next month, flexing my watercolor and life drawing muscles to build up to a couple of new projects.
The other night I watched an entire season of Game of Thrones while filling my sketchbook with those swirly things. I used to fill notebooks with those things during class. Call it meditation.
I’ve also been making a lot of friendship bracelets which I suppose I’ll post about soon enough.
Someone told me to draw “Mitt Romney as he who shall not be named from Harry Potter. Maybe drinking unicorn’s blood.”:
My roommate Matthew comments, “too political!”
My mother comments, “How about [you draw] Obama running back to school to learn how to run a country . . .”
Keepin’ it fair and balanced, people. Just kidding, smash the state.
