On a completely unrelated note, I have a work in progress to show you. There were supposed to be several more pictures but I'm having trouble finding them in the abyss of my new computer. Really steep learning curve. seriously.
So here's a teaser. The piece will be called "By the end of the week" and it's about some days when you feel defeated and just want to curl up in a ball in a dark corner somewhere. I'm sure you can relate.
This drawing is just the beginning of the process - the pattern, as it were. It's drawn on a piece of construction paper with a soft pencil. I usually shy away from drawing things that are supposed look like real things, as I have no art training whatsoever and little innate skill with drawing reality (and, frankly, little interest in art that is that analytical for me), but this one just poured itself out of me onto the page. The artists out there will know what I mean.
I promise to post the finished piece when it is done.
