trying to draw once a day

that’s what they tell ya to do.  draw once a day.  if you’re serious about getting better….

so.  i have been trying to open my journal once a day to do so.  while moses jones is on my mind–i am trying to catch up on sleep and haven’t had a chance to draw all the stories in my head.  meanwhile, i keep my hand, imagination, and rapidograph pen loose by drawing a doodle a day.  at least.

i added watercolor to this one.  i think it may have been better if i had left it just pen.  or added ink brush instead.

oh well.

plus!  i have been reading a lot of graphic novels to see different styles and writing ideas, etc.  i loved david small’s stitches.  the art work was wonderful, and i love to hear about other people’s fucked up childhoods.  i am also enjoying some jesse reklaw and alex robinson.  i like reklaw’s art a lot.  i like robinson’s stories.  i have read so many graphic novels at this point that i am seriously afraid i am no longer able to read books without illustrations.

i'm a disaster at every type of relationship i enter into...except with my kids. i think i'm doing something right there...but it is difficult to tell sometimes, especially since i have a pretty crappy support system since support involves relationships. i am a pretty dark person with a weird sense of humor. i spend my non-mom time cooking, baking, homesteading, fermenting, planting, sprouting, experimenting, reading, writing, drawing, plotting, obsessing, and hiding. as a mom i am about as unconventional as i can get. i unschool my kids & give them a lot of freedom to be who they are. this does not help my popularity. but my kids are super cool. i love my kids.

One thought on “trying to draw once a day”

  1. It’s easy to make link when in edit mode, just highlight where you want the link to go and click above where you see picture that looks a tiny bit like a figure 8 that I believe is supposed to represent a chain. Good luck.
