So, lately I've had the urge to draw more often. I even started a somewhat complicated charcoal drawing today! It's a deviation from the usual straight forward portrait, as it includes 3 individual images that I'm trying to blend together in a sort of collage. I got it about 2/3 sketched out today and I'm happy with one third of it at least. Heh. I got sort of frustrated with the second part because it wasn't coming out quite right (working with smaller scale images/details is more difficult I have discovered.) But I shall press on at a later date.. and see if some charcoal and shading might bring it around.. besides, that's the fun part anyway!
In the meantime, I still need to tweak my drawing for John and slap some color on it. I'm also debating on putting my charcoal experiment on hold while I punch out a regular charcoal portrait. PLUS, I have tons of ideas queuing up in my head! I wish I had more time, and less distractions, in my day so that I could really crank out some artwork!!! (24 hours is just TOO short for a day! Can we change it to 30? 18 hours awake, 12 hours asleep, that sounds good to me!)
Anywho, enough of my rambles (which no one reads, I'm pretty sure.) I just found these kick ass necklaces..
And so I wanted to do a feature of some of my favorite..."Cool Crafts"
(Above necklaces included, of course!!)
(I love handmade journals and books!!)
