February 2016 Dispatches

February has been a very busy month: some opportunities had to be let go of, weekends became weekdays, sleep became optional, and side projects had to take a back seat.

In the thick of things, I still managed to sneak in a few drawing sessions here and there. I had to; otherwise I’d go full-on bat-shit, I eat-humans-for-breakfast crazy. Haha.

So here’s a round-up of stuff I was able to post on my Instagram account (follow me if you’re there) under my hashtag #drawingdispatches.

This also serves as a review and a reminder for me to heed my own advice of setting aside time to flex your drawing muscles daily.

So here we go. February in drawings:

…unless you got buns, hun. But a pretzel works just as fine, nbd.

Sometimes lullabies come in the form of a quick sketching session in bed. Good night, folks. 🌙

Watercolor warm-up. I haven’t drawn in a week, and I feel soooo rusty. 😣

Today’s get-out-of-your-rut watercolor exercise. Hahaha! Leo was a favorite subject in my pubertal years: I was maybe 11 when Romeo + Juliet was released. Loved the movie, loved the soundtrack. Loved it so much, it induced a Shakespeare phase (Macbeth’s a favorite). And then Titanic was released. And we all adored Leo’s Jack (I was in an all-girls Catholic school then so you can imagine the obsession). And this exercise was a reminder why I loved drawing Leo: look those eyes. Sigh. I hope I was able to capture the intense blue. I actually listened to 90’s rock and hip-hop to kick up the nostalgia a notch. Hahaha! Anyway, I haven’t seen The Ravenant as my family warned me that while it was beautiful, they left the cinema with a heavy heart. I already am too stressed at the moment so I’ll wait until things calm down before I see it. Hahaha! 💙💙💙

I have seen the new Game of Thrones poster, obviously. 🐲

Exercising at midnight because man, I feel rusty. 😞 Used a b&w photo for reference.
