...just some pics from today...I woke up early, too early (per usual)...tiptoed into Jessie's awesome art room and began setting up my work area. Five 18x24 fashion illustrations later (added some color to these images from the Harper's Bazaar that I received yesterday as a gift) a small burst of crazed organization with Jess... then I headed home. Did some cleaning, took a nap with my in-house nap club (aka Mackie and Scooter) and then it was time to pick up John from the airport.
When I was editing my pictures to post tonight I realized that I already had 31 of these images created- that's more than the daily pieces, which are only up to 23 for the month...and I didn't even start this side project at the first of the month. I feel like I have really found what I love, and now I am just playing. I would like to practice my speed so that I could maybe sit in on some live fashion shows and sketch. Now that...that would be amazing. For now, will just keep pouring over these images that I see in the magazines and on-line and keep sketchin'.
And I finished up my CED #267...going down to 4 minutes this week. Kind of tough on the small format that I chose, but I don't like to switch sizes because then I will fixate on the fact that the sizes don't match...so...will just keep the small format.
...still trying to make NYC happen for the coming weekend...it might be a longshot, and I am certain that it is one of my hair brained ideas...but I can see my feet walking in the city, heading to see that show at the Whitney...fingers crossed I can make that happen.
For now, just mentally preparing for another week. I might even try to go to sleep before 11pm!!!
