The commissioned quote drawing I started yesterday is done! I opted to go more simple with the decoration and just try to frame the quote so that it doesn't get lost. I used the colors of the school at which my friend who requested this piece teaches. It's done directly on the "Read" page from a 1989 copy of Webster's Dictionary.
I can't believe I've been doing this daily art thing for 9 weeks. Where does the time go? But time passes anyway so at least I have 9 weeks worth of art to show for the time passing. I need to bring in some more money, though, so I'm going to focus more on producing art that I love making but that I also hope sells. I definitely still plan to keep learning and trying new techniques but I'm feeling the pull to be more purposeful about what I'm working on. I've had several works in progress in recent weeks so you might see more of those. I kinda like doing that though. It's forcing me to take photos as I'm working and it's cool to see the art evolving. I hope to get a Go Pro camera sometime soon and can shoot some video as I work.
Thanks to anyone who has been reading along and following my progress. Feel free to comment and tell me what you think...but keep it nice, please!
Here's a pic of the finished quote and my week 9 compilation.
Short post today...I realize it doesn't look like I got much done today but I actually spent a few hours figuring out the font for this commissioned piece then transferring it and finally inking it onto the dictionary page. The hardest part is now done, though, so now I just have to figure out what art I want to put around it.
