Things have been very busy lately. I have had more design work and besides that I have been busy with my personal project. I have also continued to participate in the #inktober challenge. Here is one of my favorite ink drawings from last week. I've been working so much on both design and illustration lately that I am feeling just a tiny bit burned out. Normally any moment I have that isn't filled with activity with kids or house or cooking or 'other'... I immediately rush to use it for drawing/designing/painting time. This weekend I just couldn't bring myself to walk toward the computer or drawing table. I can't avoid it long though, because I start feeling like I'm wasting time. There is a tiny voice inside me that will not let me rest. So, more work will probably appear here soon. Thanks for reading... MM
I've been busy with several art projects lately, some are mine and some are for others. Right now I am having a great time with the Inktober challenge that was begun a few years ago by Jake Parker. I am doing a small ink drawing each day in October.
I usually don't work in ink. Not because I don't enjoy it, but because I like it too much! It's addictive. I get in the mode of wanting to go ink over all my pencil sketches, but I decided a long while back that I needed to pursue a different style because my ink work seems to hard and graphic for what I want to do. I also can't do color well with ink work and I do enjoy painting my work in order to 'finish' it. Regardless of all that, I am certainly having fun doing this challenge. It's also nice to do work that is not for any real purpose, just for fun.
Thanks for reading,
Thanks for stopping by. I'm a published illustrator working on getting better every day. My goal for my work is for it to be charming, bright and endearing. I share my ongoing work progress online because I welcome all the encouragement and feedback I can get as I try to improve my skills. I currently have a children's book project that I am nearing the end of.
