Sketchbook Project items came in the mail today!
Excited to make a comic in the sketchbook and who knows what kind of edition of prints for the exchange.
Works in progress. I’ll post detail shots over the next couple days. Probably will make some cute GIFs or something. Be excited!
I haven’t done much 2D work since I graduated. Instead I have been playing with textiles and a little bit of sculpture work.
I guess I have been doing some book arts too, but nothing worth sharing yet. Mostly practice books to improve my binding skills.
Remember this flowchart? Well if you forgot, here is the little thing I had drawn in a Field Notes book way back when.
Anyway something just for fun to help me stay organized.
I have been doing more complicated embroidery than I used to do on my prints. I just realized I haven’t posted any complete project yet, hahah. But here is a cover I made for William’s daily agenda book for work. Please note that the bear is not a polar bear, but a kermode or spirit bear. Google it!
A sneak peek of sketches. Be prepared for my first minicomic of short stories coming soon!
I don’t do recipes, but just throw random stuff together based on what is on hand. Sometimes I’ll jot down an ingredient list if I tried something different that turned out really well. Which is what happened with tonight’s fried rice.
Ingredients: long grain brown rice, soy sauce, coconut oil, sesame oil, red pepper flakes, black pepper, sesame seeds, Chinese mustard, coconut flake, ginger, garlic, Chinese eggplant, carrots, asparagus, bok choy, eggs.
Definitely would make this again vegan, but today felt like an egg kind of day.
This is what I decided on for dinner: whole wheat pasta with tomato sauce, red peppers, garlic, spinach, crimini mushrooms, and zucchini.
Next is working on some longer complicated (for me) comics!
My general impression of the Apple Watch and pretty much the rest of it.
Now to figure out what to make for dinner.
Tonight’s last minute kitchen magic: whole wheat pasta with garlic, spinach, crimini mushrooms, and Chinese eggplant tossed in pesto.
It’s awfully brown looking, but really tasty.
Dear new followers:
You guys and gals are swell.
Earlier this summer I purchased a wide variety of dip pen nibs to try out. I’m not interested in learning calligraphy, but using dip pen to ink comics and do other illustrations. I am definitely enjoying steel nibs over felt tip pens in terms of line quality and control.
I owe my friend hellocheekyface many thanks for suggestion of using nibs. You should check out his tumblr for neat drawings, comics, photos, and more!
