I was stuck on a design for the next page I'm working on. Grabbed the wrong sketchbook to work out some thumbnail sketches, and came across this one I did a while ago. In case you can't make anything out, it's Paul in his rock form from the top view, holding a girl in his giant hand. Meant for it to be a cover or something. I think I'll go with it!
Listening to: David Crowder Band, Mumford & Sons
Did this drawing a few years ago, I always liked how it came out, because I was just playing around with a newspaper image I found and a sharpie. It's funny how when I'm not trying too hard, the work comes better than every other time. sigh.
Sometimes the simplest solution to a problem can be hidden from us. I've struggled for years to find time to do some art, then get down because I don't do anything, which keeps me from doing anything, as it goes. Artist Doug TenNapal wrote some suggestions that I took to heart. He said just commit to 20 min., 5 days a week. I thought, I can do that, and 20 min a day is a lot more than I normally do.
I have the blessing of being able to get up early and have some uninterrupted time before I go to my day job. Now, I always felt as a good Christian, you have to have your bible time & prayer 1st thing or you suck. It is a great thing to acknowledge and thank the Lord before you do anything, I agree. Why can't I do that in the shower, or driving to work, or going potty? I do at many of those times when I can pause and remember why I'm here, and thank my God for the great blessings he's given me. Doing something because I'm "supposed to" honestly takes the fun and life out of it, and I love a God who is fun and full of life, and doesn't care that I praise him in the can, as long as I'm praising him.
SO anyway, that's why I never thought of using morning time for drawing time. Having a religious spirit. So far, I'm happy with the results, and I'm only 2 days in. Let me know what you think!
