I'm moving slowly getting into various art challenges...had to perform the mental gymnastics required to file our annual income taxes. I wish it were more, "This is how much you earned. This is how much you owe." But it's not.
Tedium thus reigns supreme.
First up, EIM. The word of the week is "gecko." You just had to know where I was going with this one! (My apologies to friends outside of the United States who may not be familiar with Nigel. He's the official spokesman for GEICO, aka the Government Employees Insurance Company. I'm not sure why an Australian lizard markets American insurance, but there you have it).
The next thing I worked on was IAST. It was all about 8 and 88. I finally cracked a Canson drawing pad in light grey. I thought I might be able to use a white gel pen, but I was mistaken; the paper is too light-colored for that.
I do like the paper, however; it's a nice, dense weight at 250g and a lovely neutral grey.
Then I broke out a new Sharpie (yay!) for the Diva, same paper. I just used a circle stencil, which ended up looking like little fireflies floating around.
In between all these things, I've been dealing with the delivery of a large package that arrived looking like an elephant sat on it. I can't believe the shippers just dropped it and ran, other than I'm sure they didn't want to incur my wrath firsthand. Which may have something to do with what I've created so far for TwobyTwo:
(When people ask me how I am, my usual response is, "Peachy." My reasoning is I'm warm and fuzzy, right? In this context, "peachy" means something quite the opposite).
I was also trying to channel my inner Georgia O'Keefe and chose to create a digital rendition of a Sonya rose, my favorites (it's peach color, of course).
Thanks to you who have come to visit; I appreciate you taking the time. Thanks to the talented individuals who have spent their time and energies creating patterns and putting forth the call for art. You all keep me sane!
