Creative To Do Lists

Since recently I’ve had little time to make art, I got the idea to make creative to-do lists in my moleskine. The idea was to do an experimental page each morning, and since it was only a to-do list, I felt no inhibitions about creating a great work of art. It was merely a chance to experiment with different media.

Each day that I did a new page, I immediately felt a weight lifted off my shoulders and was able to go about my day with new energy. Now I’m trying to decide if I should continue the habit. Am I the only one who is constantly tinkering with my schedule, hoping to find the perfect creative routine?

Another Moth-eaten Sweater

I did this drawing using a Tombow acid-free black brush pen. I also tried with several real brushes with ink, but the brush-pen was so much easier. I’ve been practicing drawing with a brush and watercolors lately because I love this guy’s style, and he draws a new cartoon everyday!

Just out of curiosity, what do you like better – crisp computer lines or hand-drawn brush lines?

Under the Weather

If you’re wondering about all the spastic changes to my blog lately, I’ve had two flavors of colds over the last week and haven’t had much energy but to sit on the sofa and dink around with it. What is it about computers that can suck up the time? It’s still much more entertaining than watching day-time tv while clutching the kleenex box.

Haven’t been able to sleep all night, and in just a few hours, I’ll have to drag a ladder over to the Creamery Art Center to help change out our exhibition space. Things are looking a little thin at the studio lately, with almost all my work (that’s any good) out and about. Check out my new page of current exhibitions, it took a while to track it all down! You’ll have to agree that I need to feel better and get back to work.
