Keeping it simple today: I didn't get much sleep and I don't feel like doing anything (though I have to get to work soon), but I didn't want to break my April drawing streak, so I doodled a succulent to cheer me up.

A bee. Bees are important.
It didn't photograph properly, but the bee is lined with golden ink.

She looks like I wish I looked: calm and at peace. Right now I feel the opposite of that.

Tried something looser because I feel like I need to improve the flow and spontaneity of my art.
There is room for improvement I guess, but it's OK.

Griffin vultures are majestic balls of floof.
I love vultures: they are really smart and quite elegant.

Fun fact: "Aprils Fool" is translated into "April's Fish" in Italian.
I am not a fan of practical jokes, so here is a goldfish instead.

I am so sorry for the long hiatus: I am doing OK, I think.
I finished this today and I am happy with how it looks.

It's been a while, but here is another quick abstract landscape I painted to fend off the anxiety.

Another finished illustration, yay!
Not 100% happy but what counts is that it's finished and I have practiced painting on tinted paper.

Something a bit more experimental: alcohol based markers on green paper.
Green is a terrible color to paint with: mixing yellow and blue is much better, but I am OK with how this turned out.

A bit messy, but overall I am happy with it.
It's good to keep up with the "finish what you started" mindset.

This one is really hard to capture because of the glare (I really need to set up my scanner).
I am not 100% happy with it, but I am continuing with the "finish what you started" philosophy.

The pros of being home ill.
I am not sure I am happy about this but I trying to stick to the "finish what you started" philosophy.
