I suppose I’ve lost the “everyday” part of this project, but, you know life’s too short to get stressed about these things. The point is I am having a lovely time drawing stuff from (mostly) life, my sense of perception and observation has developed and sharpened, my skill with the various implements I am using has improved.
So I am going to keep going with it, even though I am breaking the rules somewhat (there are no rules).
Something that seems to be happening also is sometimes I will finish a drawing and think it’s not great but it gets just as much feedback across the networks as the others.
At the moment I have them automatically cross posting to Twitter and Tumblr. Still haven’t quite got the guts to fire them off to Facebook as well. Not sure why that is, I have always struggled with Facebook, and hate the idea of oversharing on there. But for Tumblr and Twitter I’ll overshare with no worries, which is odd because people who I am connected to on Facebook are more likely to be people I know “Away From Keyboard” as it were.
Anyway, as ever these are embeds from Instagram, you can follow me there if you want them straight off the page, if you catch my drift. I have posted the accompanying comment I posted it with, but you’ll have to click through if you want to read what other people have said. (Don’t bother if there’s only one though that’s usually me adding hashtags after the fact).
62/#365. My car died yesterday (terrible business), so this was done waiting for a kindly offered lift to work. Backwell. V-ball. #Notebook: Leonidas. (This is on the card inside cover of Leonidas. Leonidas is a 6 minute Moleskine, very easy to make yourself. For instructions please visit #burningfp.com and search for "6 minute moleskine".)
66/365 Backwell, waiting for lift to the workplace. Development of previous sketch. Cycled in yestetday, took it easy because it had been a while. Thus annoying a lot of MAMILs who needed to be going faster than was actually safe. One chap nearly took out some old fella's dog because he just had to overtake on a blind corner, leaving me to apologise on the behalf of him and all other cyclists. V-ball. Notebook: Leonidas
