So, I’ve kinda started a new project that currently has no name–well, I’m kinda referring to it as Project Transparency, but that seems kinda pretentious–and it’s a vlogging project so–yay?
I made the first entry today:
And–I ended up with me saying something ableist, and I’m sorry. I’m working to eradicate that sort of oppressive language (that totally encourages my own internalized ableism towards myself) from my usage. I messed up; I’m still working on it.
I was really trying to wait to start this project until I had a better video camera but who knows when that will be, so instead, I decided to just jump in with all tentacles.
But, yeah, the idea is to make the art-making process transparent for non-artists. Maybe even do some more of the stand-and-stir arting (with a fuckton more editing because, omg, those were awkward) or process vids.
Are there things that y’all would like to see done?
I mean, I’ve been doing some digital painting and procreate has this neat function where you can export the history of your piece as a video. Here’s a playlist of them thus far.
They’re kinda neat to watch.
(NB: Gnome and ‘Lain are discussing putting my time-lapse art vids to music. That’s exciting.)
(By-the-by, I’m still trying to be brave enough to put commission prices up other than in that one post I did–what can I say, I’m kinda scared. Is there interest? Because, if there is, I’m likely to be, well, I still be scared like whoa, but at least, I’ll know I’m not annoying anyone with it.)
So, I’m not going to put a whole lot of the new sketch-a-days in this post because it’s already getting ridiculously long, but again, if you’d like to see the sketch-a-days in their entirety, either check out my #studiosquid or #sketchaday Tumblr tags (since I’ve kinda been doing Pacific Rim and Hannibal sketches for the last couple of weeks).
Also, it’s really easy to just duck into my sketch-a-day Flickr set.
But, I’ve actually managed to complete a conceptual, mixed media piece so–yay!
And, on a side note with More Information Forthcoming, I’m going to be participating in Definitely DePere again this year.
(It’s also my birthday today.)
