Well, it's finally Friday...or...Saturday. Now it is Saturday, almost 1am. The first full week of school went great but I must admit, I had to take naps every day this week. I try not too, but I know I will be up til 11:30-1ish every night anyway so I might as well sleep a little. I am hoping that I will get more accustomed to the schedule very soon, this is going to be a busy year.
Rainy weather here didn't keep me from heading down south to hang out with Jess and Angela, the two queen bees of this whole Art Hive endeavor. I can't believe it sometimes, but it is really happening. The magazine is set to come out in October, with three launch parties already set, Angela and Lady selling ads and making connections, Jess graphic designing her BEEhind off. (sorry, I had to!) And I feel fortunate to be a part of it, my first article already written and turned in to Jess. My articles are going to focus on looking for inspiration, staying motivated...kind of why I started this whole blog here.
As for my art for the day, didn't have time to draw with my 5th graders, they were busy finishing up their drawings for the week, selecting their best two drawings and the one that wasn't as successful and writing their explanations for their choices. But I did work on my daily art (#237) here at Jessie's, taking my inspiration from the Art Hive mock-up she designed, well, the first one. This is the same image on the business cards and the website, I figure I see it enough...and I can include a bee so it can go with the images I have been working with this month.
And now, time to sleep. I don't think my weekend will include any pool or oceanside drawing...nope, just going to try and stay dry!
