HELLO FRIENDS. I bring you my suddenly inspired and late-submission for ArtOrder's Tiny Dragons call for art. I'm feeling goopey, y'all get goopey dragons. Used mostly my poster colors and a little bit of old as crap colored pencil. All on cold-press (which I am honestly suprised survived the excess water I kept plopping down) watercolor paper. I even made a value study to see if it would work. It kinda worked. Not well but....yah.

I'm trying to figure out how to import frenden's brushes to on ipad. I followed a youtube tutorial but get a "can't be added as a subtool" error :(

D: AM TIRED. NO MORE HOLIDAY PLEASE.

SO. Guess who jumped on the El Lawrence train? This gal. Oh no, @rowkey was right. This is glorious. Mucky muddy rotting plant green.

Mastodon! I come bearing ink tests!

Ordered a bunch of little samples to play around with, and my personal taste in ink is incredibly...muddy. These are on different papers, applied with a dip nib rather than a fountain pen.
Please pardon my goofy/inconsistent handwriting!

don't mind me, just re-deriving envelopes from scratch over here

also, never buying envelopes again!!!

(my glue press is, in fact, a stack of old books and a hand weight)

I drank wine and played and WON BINGO at the church. bingo

And here was the whole start-to-finish from last night. Finally got a fire under my chair and worked it out.

New pen day! Platinum century 3776 14k soft fine gold nib. Writing with this is so nice and the soft nib gives a certain “bounce” that a steel nib doesn’t give you. I’m in love. I love this pen. I waited a month for it and it was worth the wait. mastodon.art/media/L7WGzE_cT_1

@ThatDamnCat

I've lived here for six years and my farm was in central Illinois. I'm never living somewhere with winter proper again.

I'm a concept artist for film/TV and games that's an armchair writer. I've worked a fair bit with showrunners, in the past, building their worlds, but I've never written my own story all the way through (despite reams and reams of plot outlines).

I totally relate to varied jobs and varied interests. I made a heap of posts here about how specialization begets commercial success but is creatively bankrupt.

I've been a farmer (Rescued animals were fostered and never raised for meat as I was a hardcore vegan at the time. The feral cats, raccoons, goats, sheep, dogs, pigs, rabbits, chickens, guinea fowl, ducks, and horses could attest.), cat shelter worker (my wife still is and runs the cat half of Austin Pets Alive -- we TNR'd ~4,000 feral cats in rural Illinois before moving here and she continues to do amazing work), repairman, sign painter, game developer, print maker, screen printer, apparel designer, concept artist, and a nascent writer (I've a few hardware reviews published in technology magazines and tutorials in art magazines but have been a coward when it comes to fiction. 😆). I've worked for myself ever since I left home at fifteen.

I'm totally down for some ☕ -- I'm heading out on a cruise next week and I need to get my car fixed when I get back. I'm such a homebody that the battery went dead from disuse. Oy. After that?
