When I woke up this morning...in the weird, climber-like position I usually wake up in (sometimes there is a cat on my back and/or pillow...just sayin')...the first thing that I saw was my new tattoo. It made me happy.
And it made me want to draw.
So I got up, tip-toed to into Jessie's studio/Art Hive office (I forgot to mention that is where I was)...and I started to draw. I finished up my piece from yesterday and then drew my daily piece.
Sometimes, when I finish my daily piece early I don't know what to do with myself for the rest of the day. Today was kind of like that. I cleaned, I napped, I tried to organize my art table...then I organized my beads and jewelry findings while watching a few documentarties...'Unzipped' (1995) a documentary about Isaac Mizrahi and 'Bloomberg Game Changers: Anna Wintour' (2011)...kind of on a fashion kick this weekend. John was in Michigan so I watched every fashion-related documentary I could find. Both of these were really good, 'Unzipped' went over the behind the scenes of Mizrahi preparing for a runway show after one that received less than stellar reviews. His passion for clothing and for style really struck me, no matter how crazy the industry life was for him, ,regardless of the reviews. As for the documentary on Wintour, also really interesting, seeing her rise in the industry. Now I want to watch it again, then watch the 'September Issue' and then watch Devil Wears Prada. And I want to create a bunch of fashion illustrations while I watch it all. But not tonight...gotta get some sleep so I can teach art camp in the morning.
And now...I am rambling...blah, blah, blah...I added my daily pieces to the 'Recent Works' page and also to my FB page, and I also added four new fashion illustrations, shoes from the Prada F/W '13...and I made a few jewelry pieces...pretty productive day...some of it, admittedly, was me trying to pass the time til John comes back home.
So...ummmm....that's it. Goodnight! -JLG
