Lately it seems like Autumn is doing its best to stay over our sunny island. I hope it does. I’ve missed the Autumn skies. In other news, I’m really really excited. If all goes well I might work on something I’m a big fan of. Fingers crossed. I’ll let you know.
That’s what I’m seeing from my new apartment. It might have its shortcomings but view is definitely not one of them. Now that I’m mostly done with fixing up the place, I can’t wait to spend some quality time in it. I keep picturing myself in this ideal situation were I’m drawing Mused on that terrace with a hot cup of coffee and lots and lots of free time!
I’ve been giving too much attention to the social media lately and the blog wasn’t getting any love. I intent to change that. Blogs might feel a bit obsolete lately but it still feels somehow more personal than any other social platform and I really like that.
Here’s my batch of this year’s Inktober sketches. They are already posted on facebook and twitter but I like having them all together in one post. I was too busy and went with the half marathon this year doing sketches only every other day. There were days I literally couldn’t spare more than 5 minutes for a sketch.
In case you don’t know what I’m talking about let me explain really quick. Inktober is a ink sketching chalenge. You’re supposed to make an ink drawing everyday for the whole of October. Hence the name. Jake Parker is the artist who conceived the whole thing and you can get more info at his website. I might be drawing on a daily basis anyway for work, but the fun part for me with inktober is doing it with so many people at the same time. Somehow it tastes a bit different. Like watching a movie on tv instead of a dvd.
I’ve also added some time-lapse videos I made for a couple of sketches at the end of the post. Two of the videos are from last year’s Inktober.
There’s an overwhelming number of people -at least by my standards- visiting the website and all my internets. I’ve been showered with emails and messages this last week, especially since last night. Such are the unexpected joys of the internet. It feels great to receive so many nice words from so many people. All I can think is that I have to give something back. And I will. I’m swamped with freelance work at the moment. The kind I can’t share yet plus I’m in the process of moving to a new house but I’ll do my best. Welcome everyone.
Have a great weekend. I know I’ll do. You made sure of it. :)
