I've been dabbling in my square sketchbook a lot, I think the smaller size and the more unique shape are more attractive and inspirational to my mind.
I've also gone on a sort of a 'paint-a-thon' these past two days (and to continue today as well). I know that there are busy, busy times ahead, and I wanted to get out some paintings before I may not have time (I expect to be painting a lot of commissions instead with the holidays around the corner - sigh, yes I know it's silly to say: but it is in the online shopping world). Here is my 'studio area'. Yes, my headphones are taped together, but they are my favourite for painting - and they still work lol.
I no longer have a desk to work on (that didn't make the move to Owen Sound), but I figured since I'm not sharing the apartment with roommates, that I can paint where ever and it's working out fine. Those paper are 'lists' of ideas - I make then when I'm at work and an idea strikes - I know I won't remember until I get home or near a sketchbook. Here's a sneak peek at some of the paintings that I will be posting in a day or so:
I've also figured out the main page for my Sketchbook Project 2012. I'm pretty sure I know what I want to do for the cover, but I think I want to wait until I'm almost done the book since it will sort of 'wrap around', and if the book gets thick I don't want that compromising it. I also have ideas for another spread of two that I will do today, and I'm hoping to introduce some tracing paper into it!
And lastly....*drummm rollll*....I got a new printer!! :o) Yesterday, my scanner on my old printer broke - it just wouldn't scan under any setting but document, and I didn't want that (and you know, when little things stop working it's a precursor for larger breaks to come). So I looked up my warranty, and I still had it - but it was done at the end of this month! Yikes! It needed to be looked after pronto then. So, I brought it in, and after some paper work - this new baby was mine! (Buying that extra year of warrenty was a great decision - out only 30$ instead of over 250...). So here's my new best-y: this one has touch buttons totally cool!
Check out some other creative spaces :) Happy creating!
