We recently returned from a week’s visit to Nova Scotia where we stayed in a gorgeous house in an idyllic setting. You can see the Airbnb listing here.
In order to join my artistic 8-year-old at the table, spend less time on my screens, and actually get a vacation, I spent many hours drawing a picture of the house that I had taken.
I was inspired by a short film called My Grandfather’s Memory Book to start adding watercolors to my sketchbook.
I finally applied watercolor a few nights ago. It was harder than I thought to wrangle, but as with every aspect of this endeavor, it was satisfying time well spent away from the faster, digitized world.
I sat at a desk with three screens.
I love these continuous line drawing angle people. Did you see people? Does the second one look like they’re on a cell phone?
Jamaican Gold on KOOP is part of the Sunday morning tradition at my house. It sounds especially nice on this old Zenith tube radio I found at a yard sale last year.
I made a nice simple innovation on the journal format: from the top left prescribe what could/should happen, your todos; in the top right record what does happen.
These diamond doodles look so sculptural. I wonder how I could bring them to life? What metal, paper, or wire could reproduce these? A mobile might be nice, but I’m imagining a big upright, painted metal thing.
Made from tracing a plectrum and drawing a face. These by Gray Parsons and I.
