Today is, sadly, the last day of my Winter Break. I can feel work looming over me, threatening to crush me with its weight of responsibility and, y’know, work. But, I’m an adult. I know work cannot be avoided. That doesn’t mean I want to go quietly into that good night. Or to work, for that matter.
Also, have I mentioned I’ll take suggestions for things to draw for the sketch? ‘Cause I will. Take suggestions, that is.
It’s the last day of the year! Let’s send the year off in style with a partyin’ pic!
I’ve been playing my guitars a lot this week; even did a bit of recording with my friend Emily on Wednesday. So today’s sketch is me playing a guitar, because why the hell not.
Tomorrow’s New Year’s Eve. Pretty exciting, I guess.
Here we are at the 30th sketch! I’m pretty excited. For today’s doodle, I did a version of myself as a Sim. I’ve been playing a ridiculous amount of the Sims 3 the past day or two, and it sorta got into my head. It’s how I’ve spent most of the past twenty-four hours, probably. I’m pretty proud of the shading on the shirt, though the pants didn’t turn out like I wanted. Such is life.
Sorry this post is late. We had a busy day of bowling and Muppet movies yesterday. Also, I played Sims 3 a hell of a lot. I think it’s an addiction.
Anyway, yes, watched the Muppets last night. Thought the movie was great. Today’s sketch is of me. As a Muppet. Because Muppets are awesome.
I usually draw pretty small. I mean, everything I’ve been posting in these daily sketches fits on a 3″x5″ index card. So today’s sketch is an effort to start thinking bigger. It still fits on an index card, but it’s a close-up self portrait. I also inked this one using a brush pen instead of my usual gel-ink ballroller. I’ve always been fascinated by the variation in line width you can get with a brush pen, and I’ve been trying to learn how to use them for awhile. I think I’m starting to get the hang of it.
It’s been raining here in Northern Virginia all day, and so of course today was the day I took a group of students to a museum up in Washington, DC. Have a rainy day sort of doodle.
A little self portrait for y’all.
