Fingerless gloves from a small loom. I liked this project. I probably shouldn't be posting a picture because somebody will likely get them as a gift this Xmas. I am just proud of my work.
Typical me-- feeling guilty for enjoying knitting when I should be working to make money. Student loans are stressing me out and I am engaging in self-hate.
Catching up with the #DailySketchChallenge with oil pastels and pens.
I have never liked using pencils daily, but in art I found I liked them for adding value. So 2 years ago I challenged myself on inktober not to use pencil, to break things down simpler. My last couple pencil drawings in 4-5 min have been terrible. I guess I really did learn to use pens.

Catching up on the 2-5min #DailySketchChallenge I did some custom greeting cards for friends and I had a podcast editing gig to finish.
Anyway, with @CountZero encouragement I tried my brush pen on one. Another was my first time with oil pastels, and then chalk pencil and my sketch pencil.
I don't know. I just think information should be free. If you want to build a course on productivity, sure charge for it. However, if you're writing a blog or article, maybe it should be free. Maybe we should grow as a society, as the human race, together. Of course, we've all been raised with the message $ = success. So get that money. Put your work behind a paywall. It doesn't matter if it is good, as long as you have bank.
Well, that turned a bit masculine. A previous #30FacesChallenge was too thick compared to the orginal, now this is too thin. 🤔
It doesn't look like the original, but I like it.
One of the things I like about the #DailySketchChallenge I am doing is the timed aspect. This feels freeing, like when I moved away from designing on the computer. No undo. I am learning to trust myself and go with it. First one in 4 min, second took 5. I used charcoal pencils.
Realistic Sketches in pencil has been a strength which is why I moved to watercolor to grow. But 5 minutes? Oh that's a challenge. Yikes.
5 minutes on the first, 4 on the second.
I'll be thankful for all of you on Canadian Thanksgiving tomorrow!
I'll be even more grateful if you take advantage of this LAST DAY for a $20 tee from my store. (use code: howl)
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
