So, I’m still woefully behind in the 100-Day Project, but it’s ok. I’m going to keep plugging along, but now that I’ve done 35 pencil sketches, I’m going to finally switch gears.
I’ve spent the last couple weeks working in ink on the illustrations for a children’s story my sister wrote in the wake of the tragic Orlando nightclub shooting on June 12. She was moved to write a story to hopefully help any of the younger people affected by the shooting know that there is still good in this crazy, sometimes scary world. I’m posting it here for all to enjoy.
May was a busy month…had to end my school year early to undergo surgery in late May. We all know trying to cram the same amount of work into fewer days results in, at the very least, exhaustion, and most likely, crabbiness. I raise my hand, yes, to both here. However, in addition to my work-related obligations, I was bent on finishing the Mondrian-inspired piece I had started — and I did it!
Based on Mondrian’s Fox Trot B, our task, again under the tutelage of Nicole Arnold on Skillshare, was to recreate part of a Mondrian and then alter or personalize it in some way. I was pleased to have finished this — part of it before and part of it after surgery.
And now that I’m back up and around a bit more normally, I have re-committed to catching up on the 100-Day Project. I am up to Day 22, still 20 days behind, but I’m going to keep sketching till I catch up, and then I’m just going to keep going.
