This month has my fewest ever posts. Largely, it’s because I haven’t been reading much these past few weeks. I quit listening to the audio book of The Martian. I tried rereading In the Time of the Butterflies, but ultimately dropped it. Now I’m theoretically reading In the Garden of the Moon but am having trouble getting involved and haven’t picked it up in days. Ultimately, it’s hard to have posts on a book review blog when you aren’t reading.
However, I have done art since the last update!
I’m somewhat behind on reviews due to finals and college applications, but I have been doing some artwork, so here’s on update on that.
I’ve been doing some sketch book work of my characters, and I’ve colored a couple of the sketches.
For creative writing, I’m working on a piece about where characters come from. I asked the teacher if I could accompany what I write with some of the artwork I’ve done for the characters (she said yes).
Bit of an explanation here – I’ve had some of these characters since I was in fifth or sixth grade. I have art of these characters dating from the hazy mists of middle school. The characters have changed a lot since then, so sharing their development also shows how my skill as an artist has progressed (which is good if I get frustrated on something. I can always look back and think, Hey, I used to be even worse!).
