Sketching in the Car...

I had an idea brewing before we left to meet up with some friends for lunch at the Mitsuwa Market in Arlington Heights, so I sketched what I could in the car before I could get motion sick. I had the best Udon from Kayaba, then had my first Chai Bubble Tea. OMG so good.

Since original art sales have been painfully slow, I'm going to start focusing on 1. Sketch Cards again and 2. doing work to put on products in my Society6 Store.

The Muse is Restless.

Been trying to get some drawing done to participate in Inktober, but... The kittens we adopted had a flair up of Upper Respiratory Infection and ended up making ALL OF THE OTHER CATS SICK TOO.  So for the past week and a half I've been disinfecting everything, every day, washing kitty blankets, food & water dishes.  It's tiring.    Not to mention that the kittens are about 5 months old, so they are between biting all the time and cuddling.  They still are not to the point of going to bed at night, instead they wrestle and bite on each other till they are booted off of the bed.

The muse is still restless, but the artist is exhausted.

In search of something more...

Finished my elf. 5x7 Marker/Colored Pencil/Acrylic. My camera shows more yellow (if there's a lot of blue) I still need to reinstall my scanner drivers so I can get a proper image of it.

Even though I'm happy with how this turned out, it still doesn't satisfy my muse. Back to the sketchbook for more drawing.

Think I'm going to transfer it to bristol so I can color it. My original intention was to draw up something for a new site profile picture. We'll see how it turns out, but I feel like I need to keep drawing, because this still doesn't satisfy the muse.

Last nights sketching

I feel like I need to re-evaluate my direction - I just don't know; I'm feeling listless. (could be the crappy weather too). Maybe I need to just do a ton of drawing and see where that takes me?  Or just completely reinvent myself artistically?  I feel like I'm in need of a change.
