    Practicing in Between (Ep. 1 & 2)

    Winter’s begun and the longest night is here. I’m ready for fresh starts, a new year, and lengthening daylight slowly inching back towards spring. I’ve been practicing art quite a bit, and am so close to filling two sketchbooks: a multimedia one and a smaller drawing one (hopefully a sketchbook share video is coming in the near future 🤞). Today I have 25 sketchbook pages to share in this post (!!!). And I came up with the idea for an ongoing series that I’ve just begun, with a new original character!

    Sketchbook Number 4 Finished

    Yeeeesss, the Midori sketchbook is filled!!! *jumps with joy* I have been dragging this sketchbook around in my purse since February 2019 (well, after March 2020 it was just near my computer. Cause, you know…not much travel sketching in 2020). And even before that, I had it at my desk at work in 2017 for a while, slowly filling it with occasional doodles and drawing drills. I bought it from JetPens on a whim, specifically for silly doodles. Over time, it’s unexpectedly transformed into a book near and dear to my heart.

    More digital sketching

    Today was mostly cramming to get ready in the morning for dungeon mastering a D&D game in the afternoon. Which I hope went well – first sessions are so hard! I spent time sketching from about 7pm-9pm, and decided to practice more manga-style faces.
