Ugh.

I’ve been having problems getting here and doing the thing where I write at y’all about art and my studio practice, and just, I’m sorry.

I’m honestly kinda–stuck? blocked?–about what to work on lately; although, the sketch-a-day project continues apace, which I never really set any rules for myself other than I would do a sketch every day of 2014 on a 3×5″ notecard.  The project has since progressed into a sort of Welcome to Night Vale fauna thing that I have tagged #welcometonightvalefauna and, more broadly, #sketchaday on my Tumblr.

Although I occasionally forget tags so check both?

On Instagram, look through the same tags.  I have no idea if anyone else uses them, but part of the joy of Instagram tags is seeing all the things you weren’t expecting.

(Y’all would get them all the time too if Instagram actually had a share to WordPress button.  But, that’s why there’s an Instagram widget in the sidebar, yeah?)

So, here are some of my current favorites of the sketch-a-day project:

Interestingly–and completely expectedly–the sketch-a-day project is working itself out into digital paintings as well as pastel paintings (and maybe even painting-paintings, but I need to get more canvases, and they’re kinda price-y).  I’ve had requests for a book when the year is done?  Is that weird?

But, yeah, the most recent adaptations are these guys:

This does, however, mean that I have committed techno-lust and gotten myself a fancy stylus to make the iPad digital arting easier, which means I’m going to start doing digital commissions soon.  Right now, the prices are looking like this:

DIGITAL ART COMMISSIONS

  • Sketch (b&w):  $10 (additional creature $10 each)
  • Sketch (color):  $15 (additional creature $10 each)
  • Lineart (b&W):  $15 (additional creature $10 each)
  • Lineart (color):  $20 (additional creature $10 each)

  • unnamed friends (b&w, existing creature):  $25 (additional creature $10 each)
  • unnamed friends (color, existing creature):  $30 (additional creature $10 each)

  • fauna (b&W, original-for-commission creature):  $35 (additional creature $15 each)
  • fauna (color, original-for-commission creature):  $40 (additional creature $15 each)

I haven’t opened commissions yet, but if you want to leave comments here or email me (in the sidebar) or message me on Tumblr, feel free.  Interest is likely to get me to do things more quickly.

Although, this was all spawned out of The Rainbow Hub (ya know, the place I write things for and am a Deputy Editor for?) commissioning critters from me for the site.

So, yeah.

Let me know what y’all think I should work on or if there’s interest in any of the things *waves tentacle* mentioned above.

Courage.
