It seems like October's Drawlloween kinda primed the creative wheels. I need to flesh it out a little more, and work on the background and I may just paint it. My list of paintings to do during this off season is growing.
First off, this sketchbook Limited Edition, I'm limiting it to the number of pre-orders that come in, I will NOT be making any extras. I am accepting orders till November 20, then the listing comes down.
I massively enjoyed this monthly challenge, I made all the way through, and created 31 drawings. You'll notice there isn't a day 21, because, honestly, I was utterly stumped. But there are two drawings for day 7.
Pages: 20 interior pages, printed on 60# Bright White cover stock.
Cover: Full bleed gloss.
Size: 5.5 x 8.5 inches
Binding: Saddle Stitch
Assembled & Packaged by me.
This year it marks the end of Drawlloween, a month long drawing challenge, which I found massively fun and very inspiring; so much so I have 3 maybe 4 new illustrations to do from my Drawlloween Sketches. Also November marks the end of show season for me, my last show was ToyCon in Bridgeview IL on Nov 1st.
This is when the real work begins. Every artist craves change during their career, either subject matter, mediums used, a need to experiment more, I think I'm at that point again. I'll be totally revamping my gallery, retiring old work to make way for new. Also I'll be concentrating more on new illustrations for merchandise in my stores. Mainly Society 6, Zazzle, Redbubble, Tee Public & my new Threadless Shop. I'm also thinking of taking my 'art cards' to a new level, I need to experiment to see if what's in my head is actually doable.
All in all, last nights Haunted Halloween Flea Market show was pretty decent. Where I was located at, was windy as hell but, the people were great, sales were good, and my 'Three Wee Witches' found a home with a lovely lady. She so smitten with it, that after she bought it she gave me a hug. That kinda made my night. So if given the opportunity next year, I will do this show again. Huge thanks to Jimmy for all of the hard work he does to make sure things go smooth for us artists.
