Was it really a month ago when I published my last post? Jeez... I need to master time tweaking a.s.a.p. or things will get even worse :D
Here is a little update on the First Accordion Swap I'm in with 6 of my on-line friends and which I mentioned and explained about here.
I had a chance to draw in three of the books and the art that is already in them is amazing. Two of them are patiently waiting for me to wrap them up and send them on the road again as I've been hoarding them for a bit too long but I guess it was inevitable. I hope I'll be quicker for the next ones but I don't want to rush it. It's about art that will end up in someone else's book and if I want to put a little bit of me in there I just have to wait for the right moment. Here is a sneak peek of my three drawings:
Sometimes I surprise myself with what I come up with or with the way I draw things - it's almost like somebody else did them. I think I'll never end up with just one way of drawing/painting things because that's not who I am, but I know in time, my pieces will definitely get that feel of »me«.
Soni Raj wrote about her experience with these little books and it's really lovely to see her parts of the art made for us. Don't they look pretty?
I am also still participating in ACEO/ATC monthly swaps at willowing. Last month the prompt was »Harvest Moon« and here's what I came up with:
This was my third pair and I think I'll continue with the »double spread way« of making them from now on. I like it because I can tell a little story this way plus I need to make sure they stand well on their own too. It's quite a double challenge and sometimes I like challenges too :)
