So a recap of 30 days project

2 Jul

SO that last post wraps up the 30 days project. This time is the first time I’ve actually really finished the project– the first year was a jumpstart for CCS, but I found I wasn’t able to really keep up.

I mostly posted on a schedule this year excepting for two periods where I was too sick to scan/post.

In fact, writing this I am fighting off some pretty hefty fatigue.
In any case, I’d say this year’s exercise was helpful, and I’m going to try to continue it, although at a reduced pace indefinitely. I’m thinking I’ll try to do two watercolour/regular colour sketches a week from now on, although I don’t know about posting dates. I can tell that even in these rough sketches, which were all done on various bits of watercolour paper scrap in my studio, my colour sense is getting a lot better. I think even some of my linework improved, although it’s hard to tell because of all the other work (commercial and personal) I’ve been doing concurrently.

In the next few weeks I’m going to be in and out of town, finally getting back to the ocean for a bit and out– so things will probably be sporadic here on the site. I’m hoping to post a couple of previews of the stuff I have in the works for SPX though, so that should be good. Also if the stars align, the store should begin to work in the next couple weeks. I’m going to be selling all of the little sketchpaintings I did this month, so if you’re into one, they’ll go for pretty cheap. most of them will work pretty well as tags, ex-libris book plates or bookmarks. I wouldn’t frame them or anything, but they’re a fun thing to make your luggage/backpack look cool.

30days_13Started listening to “Moby Dick,” read by a guy with a very accurate downeast/new englander accent. His Irish and Amerindian¬†pronunciations aren’t so wonderful, but this is good drawing background sounds I think.
