I am making myself scan in drawings from the sketchbooks to share here, I have been drawing like a proper drawing person at the moment – as in all the time. It’s so so good. Things have recently shifted and changed in my life and I have my art and it’s wonderful.
Part of the change is that I got a new job! It was a Friday afternoon send in my application by Monday morning I am scheduled for induction affair. Made all the more easy because I am qualified and have alllllll the paperwork at the ready. I aim to do a good job and learn lots of new skills. Uni still doesn’t go back for a little while so I best keep myself busy.
Rapid Antigen Test – RATs. The new gold.
Buffer for RATs. Also gold.
Vials for gold buffer to be place onto GOLD RATs. Gold facilitators.
Saliva test – less common gold.
Blurry – I accidently spilt my international roast coffee on this sketch.
It’s not a proper blog post without a sketch of hand sanitizer, so here’s the Angel. So antimicrobial.
Waiting area sketch after I got my booster. Passed the time quick.
The nurses here were INCREDIBLE.
I have more but I’m trying to group posts into relevant themes for your enjoyment.
Well hello. Again, it has been a long time. I’ve been trying to sort out life and getting into the rhythm of my ever changing routines. I left one job and have started a new one, it’s really fantastic to be working and studying – I am doing different things and learning so much. Sometimes I feel very overwhelmed but don’t we all.
Art has been going well, a little different but I’ve had some very nice things occur for me this year. That is for another post as I wanted to make this one about – SKECTHING and saying hello.
It is very nice to be skecthing again. I thought I’d take on a big painting project this year but I couldn’t afford my studio space and my new home has no space for paint. See I like the toxic stuff so I am not doing it in the house. Why not use the non toxic stuff you say, because I think it’s shite and if there is one area of my life that I have control over – it is this. I lost the sketching knack for a bit there, had to endure months and months of producing rubbish. Now I feel good and am training my eye again. I hope the next body of drawings I do a way better than what has gone before. Which is important to me in my practice, which I know I have banged on about before.
SO lockdown five for us, I am still working as I am an essential worker these days. What a time hey. I am really trying to get as much experience as I can and do my best.
What I can manage now are the skecthes and they are helping rebuild my confidence. Yes I have lost a lot of that, wah wah but here’s to continuously trying to claw myself out of the dark with pen and paper.
See you super soon and I hope you are eating plenty of veggies.
