I actually made this last month using an old Typo flip book and my window light, since I don’t have a light box in my room right now. I’m slowly getting back into the habit of image making but, like all habits, it’s hard to get back into something when you’ve gotten out of it.
One of my favourite places to draw people is during lectures and classes. It’s probably my inner procrastination master coming out, but I kind of like not paying attention which is the worst, but hey. At least I get something nice out of it.
I’m starting with a new year of people in animation, so it’s a whole new group of people to draw! Fun times.
I’ve realised lately that I’m actually inherently a very melancholy person. In the past 24 hours I’ve been listening to jazz and being sad in bed a lot. It’s getting pretty out of control. I should be drinking entire bottles of wine and crying, really.
Honestly, I’ve lived a really great life, and probably will continue to do so. I just also happen to be sad during a lot of it. The more I look at the art I’ve posted (and not posted), the more I realise a lot of that sad gets channeled into the stuff I make.
I just have a lot of feelings all the time.
I’ve finally handed in my ICS research project and the relief I feel is so immense it’s unbelievable. If you know what’s good for you, don’t start projects when you’ve got a week until the deadline.
Now I can think about making things without feeling the guilt for an entire week, Annie.
