first week 2011

It is really hard to start back up again. There are the unfinished projects that feel like they need to be finished before I start in on the new. But those projects don’t have any energy now. Or maybe it is me that has no energy. I know that the only important thing is to actually spend time in the studio and do something. Anything.

I was inspired to get out the ink and brushes by this podcast interview with Lynda Barry on Sound of Young America (thanks again for the recommendation Abby!)

I started filling up pages last night.

I am trying out different brushes on each page, trying to find one that works well with the ink.

More today.

And, I’m working on the owl pattern.

I come over to the desk and do some more scribbling when I feel frustrated.

And, Hey- It works! I’m having fun!
