Summer Art Challenge Days 30-31 — making art (of some kind) every day!
Right away, I must confess; I did not draw yesterday, nor did I paint, sculpt, collage, or otherwise make art that can be seen with the eyes or held with the hands. However, I did make music for over four hours yesterday, and as Melody the Music Muse would say, that’s art! One of my folk bands, The RabbleBerries, is in intensive rehearsals getting ready for an extra-long gig, and also for our next recording project. But since I can’t post an unrecorded rehearsal, I can only point you to our website, where you actually can listen to a few of the tunes we practiced yesterday.
In a way, I was creating comics last night; I finished up the final revisions of the Spam and the Sasquatch graphic novel for printing, and today it winged its way through the internet to the inbox of Printorium Bookworks, where, after one more proof, the first edition will be printed. Finally! I’ve been working on this project for over six months, and will be glad to finally have a big shiny pile of books in my hot little hands! I’ll take a picture, of course.
Now I can afford to relax and do some playful stuff! Tonight I met with my comic jam buddies at our usual hangout (I had cheesecake, mmmm) and I brought a pile of blank sketch cards. After we had caught up with each other’s lives, and ordered our food, an eerie silence descended upon the table as four artists focused like laser beams on the little 3.5×2.5 inch cards. We’re going to make some more and trade them; some of us are faster than others. I’m the slowest. But here are mine, as evidence that I drew today!
