Neglect

Oh Sketchymade. How I ignore you so. :(

I just finished a post at P5 Creative and started to feel bad for my own blog. Since I was obviously feeling wordy and ruminative - I THINK that's the word I'm looking for - I thought I'd turn my ministration onto this poor and lately unloved child. I don't really have much to show. What I have done  I can't show or I don't have the right to show so instead y'all can have a nice ramble. That's what these f**kers are for right? Personal blogs: for people who either looooove to listen to themselves or think other people are listening. I like to consider myself more of a speaker waiting to be discovered. Very emo, I know.

So, I came across a blog that opened my eyes to things I've never considered in my attempts at drawing. It was educational while also completely flooring me. Johnson Cover Hi-Lo. So I thought I'd share. If I were to try and consider all or even one of these things I fear I'd never draw again because of how long it would take me to figure it out. I've heard it said before that I shouldn't try to be like other people and that I should just keep drawing and practicing but damn it! I want to be able to do and draw such thoughtful and creative stuff! I guess I'll try to take a lesson from it.

The holidays are upon the world and that means family time, food and gifts. Time to get creative. I'm looooong over due to make some cupcakes and I'm going to help make some homemade pies. Pumpkin and pecan to be precise. I've never made pecan pie before. Hell, I don't think I've done pumpkin yet either but how hard can it be? :) Too bad I won't be tasting the pecan pie. There is just something about nuts in my sweets that rubs me the wrong way. HA! That was a funny sentence if you read it in such a way. Where are my manners??? I also have a few crafty gifts in mind for some of my family members. I really need to get cracking on those however if I plan to get them done along with the illustrated children's safety book. So much to do so little time... ALWAYS!!!!!!!

I think I'll make tea and head to bed.

Yep. That's me. The picture of productivity. Hey! I had a long productive day at work, dang it!
