In an EMERGENCY, I am glad that I can fall back on pieces of clipart I've done so that I can cobble together a sketch when time is short.
Our lives are always going to be busy. Art (of any level) is, for most of us, something we fit in.
Like a hungry lawyer, we chase after our opportunities to be creative.
On this day, 48 years ago, Jimi Hendrix - leader of the Jimi Hendrix Experience - passed away at the age of 27.
I’d seen him play live less than 3 weeks previously, and I still remember his playing the intro to Watchtower two semitones too low.
I owed him so much, yet I’d thought him overrated. Ha! Who am I, a third rate guitarist, to talk? I’d judged him on a small detail and missed his towering artistry.
And I still miss him.
“How did your Skeptics Society talk go, dear?”
“Very well. And I have six additions to our mailing list.”
“I’ll bet you were possessed by the ghost of Albert Camus.”
“If only I had his charisma.”
“Oh you do, darling. I love it when people don’t protect against what they don’t believe in. Now give me the mailing list and I’ll go. And do wait up for me. I shall be thirsty later.” And she smiled her lewdest smile, turned, and walked through the wall.
I'm seeing so many people preparing for inktober, making sketches, binding sketchbooks, discussing promt lists and getting ready to INK BIG.
But, I also hear many people being intimidated by that, being worried they won't come up with stuff for the promts and dropped out last years bc of that.
So please, remember: The core concept is, that you build an inking routine. To make it LESS intimidating.
So even if you go through inktober inking a stick figure each day -
You've done a great job! ♥️
J'ai vaincu la tuyauterie!
As today's WotD is "croquis" I'll exploit #DailySketchChallenge GHOST in a sketchy way.
Some words in every language go out of favor and become effective "ghosts" of themselves.
Perhaps in the US that will be difficult for this word because of the annual fun of Halloween which comes up at the end of next month.
