Had this image a few days ago after I’ve been in a major creative dry spell. I cranked it all out last night/this morning and I freaking love it. I think it looks so badass and neat. Totally what I wanted it to be like.
A few weeks ago I had been in this habit of just reading through Sun-Walking when I was bored, like, for a few hours at a time. And I had been paging through Wind-Running and redoing a few scenes at a time before I suddenly realized I felt totally ready to FINALLY tear that whole […]
If only it weren’t so perfectly transparent when it’s summertime and I start using pale yellow in ALL my pictures, hah. I bet you my color choices are actually seasonal though. Cool blues or dark reds for winter, warm pale yellows for summer, and sometimes heather pink. It’s teaching season right now and I’m […]
After my recent (No) Trouble piece I started thinking about how awesome all of the super “girl power” songs have been lately. The next day the guy on the radio was all like “There have been some females on the radio lately who are just ON FIRE” and I was like HELL YEAH so […]
I’m sure I’ve said it in here somewhere that I realized I do more art when it’s warmer than during the winter. It’s technically spring even though it’s snowing but it is currently raining, so I’m getting right into it. I’ve done two traditional ink paintings that I’m totally in love with in the past few […]
Hey I like this. Was doodling, trying to channel Lucienne so I can be more like her. Huu.
Getting texts from Kyra at various points in the story while she was reading Sun-Walking made me more sentimental about Lucy. So I drew her post-story with tattoos and scars on her legs. … Yay? Weird fluffy Ingrid. This has been a somewhat discouraging last few months for my art. Really, since my art show, […]
So late last night, I officially completed my read-through of Sun-Walking. 12,000 words down, minus one character and some glasses, and I made it through with enough affection left to feel like just gushing about Lucienne. The story is so focused on her and it makes me feel good to have written what I think […]
So in my life, I either run from endings or I put them off. Usually with people, I run from them. With things — creative things — I tend to put them off. I remember taking forever reading the last chapter of “Immortal Rain.” I have a lot of good drawings that haven’t been shaded […]
So, about two days ago I FINALLY finished my third complete rewrite of the middle portion of “Sun-Walking” that I’m calling “Wind-Running.” I first started this “sequel” in June of 2011. I don’t think it took me long and then I rushed right onto the last installment, “Sky-Dancing,” and then suddenly for some reason I’ve […]
