I am not usually too far out of the visual artist circles when it comes to browsing blogs. Quite by accident, I have recently been getting hooked on two blogs that have nothing to do with pencils and paintbrushes and the smell of turpentine.
The first one is Rock Paper Scissors. She has an adorable etsy shop and you can buy her books on her website. Theresa has been journaling her thoughts and experiences with "A New Earth". I like how she gives a small window into how she is working things out. I find myself thinking "Me too!' as I read her posts.
The second website is Nardeeisms. This is one of the most unique blog concepts I have come across. She writes about her daily life and gives each day a song that corresponds. Her writing is fresh and her ability to tell a story is delightful. A small dose of Nard in the morning with a cup of coffee and I find myself singing the day through. I am completely addicted.
Now that I have added these to my blog lineup, let me go sing a song and draw something.
A New Earth, Blog, Eckhart Tolle, self help, Tolle
Playing with some of the inking tools in #clipstudiopaint I am learning to really appreciate this program more as I get used to using it.This is no one in particular for no particular purpose. It's just handy to have some random images for NPCs. My #happyDM is pushing for color. The job is never done. #dungeonsanddragons #digitalart #illustration
Eternal Wait - I finally quit fidgeting with this one. It is #graphite on 8.5x11 smooth bristol board. It is nice to get something to a finish. No matter where I roam in media, graphite will always be my true love. I will be taking this to #Shakedown3 this weekend if you want to see it in person. #art #artist #drawingvia Instagram
Toxic - This is a journal entry before words are added.The topic of toxic people has been coming up in many discussions lately. This is how I think it would look if you could make a visual image. This started as a simple form study and ended up as this. #journal #art #artjournal #selfcare #toxicpeople #getitoutofmyheadvia Instagram
Number 3 in my quest to complete #inktober2017 I started with an ink wash and then used my Microns to accent the details. This is definitely an experiment worth repeating. It reminds me of the interior illustrations in books when I was a kid It is #ink on #watercolorpostcard #art #artist #drawing #illustrationvia Instagram
