I did a whole lot of sketches last night, my studio is covered in them and it feels like that is the way it should be and I curse any time it has been any thing other than this!
Anyway I know I am doing work that I probably shouldn’t be doing as there are some works that should be done but I’ll get on top of all of that next week I promise.
Here’s one sketch I did..
Today I did not attempt to work in my studio because it was very, very hot. So I settled for podcasts under the fan and smaller sketching and working out some things that are admin and very dull. So tomorrow it is Friday, feels like that came about super soon ( as did 2017, as did being thirty three, as did my grey hairs.. ) so I think I should like, leave the house and do things in preparation for a whole weekend drawing! yay!!!
The Longest Shortest Time seemed like the perfect title for this new drawing, it’s title comes from one of my favourite podcasts of the same name.
Her lush pregnancy hair was very fun to draw. I wanted to do a few works focusing on pregnancy – ( and fourth trimester, contact me of you want to model! ) as I have many feelings around parenting. And also it blows my mind how all consuming these times are, but how bloody quick it passes too! The discourse we have around all of this stuff is deeply troubling, I could write more about it, but writing makes me exhausted.
I am feeling very motivated and excited about drawing and creating and have so many ideas but little paper.. Will have to fix that soon!
Here is a link to the Longest Shortest Time Podcast, have a listen to all things family, birth, boobs!
