Reduce, reuse, recycle. There is much wisdom in those three words.
I’m all about not re-inventing the wheel, so I love to reuse old designs and turn them into something shiny and new. I also enjoy the creative challenge it brings. For instance, a couple of years ago (April 2018 to be exact, thanks Facebook) I drew this chameleon in my sketchbook.
It was for a 100 Day Challenge I had embarked upon — to draw one animal everyday for 100 days. I still have sketchbooks full of animal drawings that I actually really like, but have not had time to scan and polish. This week, I pulled up my old chameleon friend and played with him on my iPad, mostly in the evenings while watching The Night Manager.
This is where we landed.
I’m please enough to call him finished.
A place to share the process. A space to be honest about the triumphs and trials of my daily life as an artist and mama. Writing motivates and refreshes me.
