Looks like my ‘trip prep’ is finally starting.
Got my box of new MOO cards today. I threw a new images together very quickly a few weeks ago. Some of the new ones have worked really well… some of them I will adjust and some will not use next time. A few old favourite images are still there as well. I have two sizes. The full size which has my phone number and ore details… and the mini cards that I hand out to anyone anywhere. I do really love the mini cards!
It is always fun to see peoples response to my cards ….. I am often very generous (soft) and let strangers on the street take 2 or even 3 because they can’t decide.
I’m all ready for the card swap in Paraty now….
More playing around with concepts in preparation for my workshop tomorrow – trying different approaches (well that is my excuse) And well I then just decided to fill up the page randomly with stuff from today.
I am getting into the groove now adding trivia from each day – to enliven what is basically a ‘at home object based sketch’ and prevent myself from getting frustrated that I am not out sketching on the streets (what I like best!)
I have obscured the text today … you will therefore have no idea why some of those objects are included. Some times I make the text obscure so the meaning is unclear to others…but then I find I have NO idea myself down the track.
Other times I write stupid things…like ‘brown pear’… I think we all know that is. If I had written “HYL, TRO VDB, CBD Pear” it would have been more interesting!
Using my hero pen for lettering today… would like a broader nib for lettering. The sailor width is good but I cant write with it – the angle doesn’t suit me.
You know… I do love these random just for me pages… it is my version of a ‘brain dump’ .
Hmmm, I am a bit of a nutter I know…. time to get ready for my 2 day workshop in the Rocks …really looking forward to that.
