This week’s art
I really actually haven’t touched my art supplies much at all this week as compared to the past several weeks. What I’m really excited about is THE LAST UNICORN! and so I just did this today not but an hour before I created this blog post!
This is one of my favorite cartoons from my childhood. I used to sit and watch this movie all day long over and over and over again. So I just found out that the author PETER S. BEAGLE will be coming to my town next friday December 5th (he’ll actually be here on December 1st as well – my area is lucky enough to have two showings for him) and I will get to meet him and see THAT LAST UNICORN on the big screen! So I got a bug in my ear and decided to do a color pencil on wooden plaque of Amalthea in her unicorn and human form. I’ll show it again once it’s finished!
Oh yes and here are the crochet toys in progress in their not sewn together states haha. You love how much of a mess my desk is don’t you? My snacks all getting up in the photos too (those are the best strawberry chocolates ever! I can’t find them in the states anymore at the local Korean market so I had to order them from Japan I already ate them all *sadface* The red guy is going to get some black X stitches on a few places on his arm and one on his forehead I think and some ears as well.
You can see lots more of my daily doodles over on my instagram! Remember if you decide to participate via Twitter or Instagram please use #ArtitUp so we can all checkout your doodles!
This Week’s Crafty AGGRAVATION!
Projects that I agree to do that I then lose interest in doing. I think I’m coming to realize I shouldn’t tell people I will make something for them unless I start it and do it that day because realistically my attention span is SOOO bad that I might lose interest in doing what they want completely and quite frankly I hate feeling like I’m hemmed in by someone else’s expectations – what if they don’t like it etc. What if they want me to do something I don’t really like? That’s the problem I’m having right now. I agreed to do a yarn painting which is a fan art yarn painting for a popular disney movie character that I’m just not interested in doing….but too late now I have to buckle down and do it. I think I’m going to refrain from custom requests in the future such as this one unless its something of my own art. lol
So link up folks we want to see your art!
