Art News:

Phew! I was having some trouble with productivity, and then yesterday I did 3 complete drawings and one sketch that I hope to polish up and finish today. A couple of these look like they'll make nice marker studies! I'll scan them tonight for uploading tomorrow.

I do have one thing to share - I doodled up this doorhanger at AC so I'd have an example to offer; I'm not 100% happy with it, but.. it serves its purpose for now. :)

I need to figure out a system for keeping track of what's been uploaded where, as I have art accounts on FA, DA, Artspots and of course, (which is currently under construction).

I've looked at different artist databases that help keep track of sales and the like, but nothing I've seen fits my particular needs, so I'm guessing I'm going to have to write something on my own. (I tried Bento last year; I liked some of its features, not all of the others, and I want something platform-independant so if I'm not always on a mac, I don't have to start over)

If anyone has suggestions for easily customizable databases....? I'm all ears!

Current Projects:

I have some scanning to do, I'm thinking about a personal project, I need to let that develop a bit more. I need to fold laundry today (ahh, so domestic!) and I'd like to try to work on painting Crimson's badge. I think I want to do a color test on that first though.

Nifty things:

Sleeping well on hot nights -- Tips for keeping cool at night to improve sleep. I know I have difficulty sleeping if it's warm in our bedroom, I may try some of these techniques!

The space between Light and Shade -- Artist Benjamin Shine created a 3x4 foot portrait using nothing but pressed and pleated tulle fabric. It's lovely, go check it out! (Link courtesy of dracosphynx)

Have something cool you want to share? Let me know!

Have a great day!
