i wish i could say that was the state of my lunch but nope.
my brain is fried
doing what this postcard says (well, trying to ;)
I received this postcard in the mail about a month ago and I've kept it snug on my typewriter since then. Makes for a good reminder when your brain is fried LOL. I thought hey, I should share this with you sweet friends...so here is YOUR reminder...do it.
Creatively speaking, i never know who "gets" my artsy thoughts in my last post. I'm a little mixed about working as a graphic artist and then making art at home for fun. Please know I am not complaining. Nope. I see SO much graphic design that I try not to let it spill over into what I make on paper. That is one expression...I'm just trying to tap back into another one I left 6 years ago. Although my teachers always told me my work was graphic (not like in a nude way) LOL. In fact, i try not to do anything with my computer anymore at home (hence the typewriter) but don't tell my mac. He doesn't like that ;) I felt relieved in a way that I wasn't the only one dealing with the whole "art" in their lives. So sharing the little bit of advice my professor gave me was me trying to focus back to that. I hope, if you too are dealing with "refocusing", that it would've helped you. After all, we all need a little encouragement right? Yep. So thank you if you left some of that. I completely felt a little less insane. LOL.
so here are a couple of layouts I had fun making a few weeks back for Sweet Spuds (Gina is Awesome! Thank you!) I was in a bit of a funk and felt creatively smooshed so please try to understand ;p
Here's one for art....i heart art.
One for the dreamers...yes. i love playing with puffy clouds. And if you are a dreamer...you rock!
One for the perfectionists...come on, you SO are! LOL jk. I sometimes wish I wasn't. Handsome has trouble with me because I'll be at a store or whatever and I'll tell him I don't like certain products because the fonts, colors, graphics etc.. then he starts snoring....I'm working on his listening skillz. HA! (Just kidding babe)
And one for the people with perfect feet
I really don't like you. and i hate your feet... okay. jk. but i can't stand wearing sandals when Mr.handsome is wearing his. He has the most PERFECT feet!!!! I hate them. Every time he catches me staring at them he starts showing them off. !?!!?!?!? srsly. ugh. My feet look like they got run over. The only thing I got from my mother ;) LOL jk. well. not really.
SO there ya go... something for everyone!
And I am purchasing an early birthday present me moi. A new sketchbook. I'm SO excited. I broke out with a box I packed away 6 years ago full of chalks, charcoal, pencils, india inks etc....I'm going crazy....love it
I'll look for some of my old work and post soon.
26 days till my birthday :)
