No April Fool’s joke here! I’m actually remembering to upload a drawing. Crazy, I know.
Ya, ya I missed some drawings. I’ve realized if I insist on catching up though, I just get further and further behind cause it’s more intimidating to have to cram in multiples in my tight schedule. And then I make less art and that’s just sad. So I’ll try to keep to one a day but if I miss one here or there, I’ll no longer beat myself about it and just move on. Fair?
Aaaand here’s last Thursday’s. There won’t be more posts today, but hopefully tomorrow I’ll get fully caught up!
Already falling behind. Darn. Well, here’s my 5 min drawing for last Wednesday. It’s a cat’s skull. Not my favourite work, but the point of this project was to get okay with showing work that isn’t finished or didn’t turn out how I wanted. Take that perfectionism!
Two days in a row? Ridiculous. It’s almost like I’m trying to follow a schedule or something! Well don’t get your hopes up too much, we all know my track record :P
Whaaaat? I still exist? Yes. Yes I do. I’ve been absolutely horrible about updating my tumblr the past few months but I have been doing art. So I’ll be slowly uploading those as I get to them. In the meantime, hopefully I can appease you with this 5 minute drawing of a giraffe skull. Totally worth the 6 month wait, right? Right…. :s
This was supposed to be the final triplet for those other geometric drawings I did, but I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. I’ll sleep on it. Maybe I’ll leave it as is or maybe I’ll make a replacement. We shall see!
Look! Another 5 min drawing finally! Now that I’m back from my trips I’ll try to keep a better schedule and do them daily like I promised I would. I do need the practice! Also, I started working on the final geometric triplet today, so look for that finished piece tomorrow.
This was a small experiment in combining two things I’ve been testing out recently: watercolours and the geometric pen and ink drawings. It was also a gift to someone I know, so I had to wait until she received it to post this. As she is one of the 5 people who currently follow this tumblr, there was a high chance of her seeing it if I had posted it earlier
Here’s a drawing I did back in 2006. It was the piece that spawned my current body of work of bodyscapes. Pretty important stuff. After unearthing this again in 2010, I recreated it in acrylic paint. If you want to look at that one, it’s on my website: http://www.sallybones.com/gallery/3915-Bodyscapes#28369 . (Side note, I will be changing the name of my website eventually. Just so ya know.)
I love when restaurants have placemats you can draw on! Here’s what I drew on my placemat at Frites Alors! in Montreal. I’ll get back to 5 minute drawings when I’m back from my trip! Don’t worry, I haven’t forgotten about my schedule already
Aha, I found this the other day in an old folder on my computer. It was my first time experimenting with the program Sculptris. I have no idea what I was attempting to sculpt but it turned out rather strange
