One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is find some time to practice drawing and spend a few mindless hours sketching away. This past Sunday morning I spent it jamming to taylor swift while drawing this quick portrait (you already know by now that with me a "quick sketch" usually takes hours!) - which, by the way, you'll soon be able to see a step by step guide of how it came to be on Craftsy's blog. There's a lot of shadows left to draw but, as I did it solely for practice, I don't think I'll be going back to it. I don't know yet, maybe?
On a different note, I have been wanting a change on this blog for over a year now, and I really crave a brand new look (I had been working on a new design from scratch last year but then I got really busy and I don't even remember were those files went!).
These days I'm not quite sure if all I want is a new look for it or a complete overhaul of the whole thing and a brand new direction. I think it might be a manifestation from the instability and need for change in other areas of my life right now; and wanting to recreate this space into something that feels more familiar, personal and steady, but I'm not very sure exactly what I want to do about it right now. I'm so busy that I don't think I'll even have the time to sit and decide where I want to go with this and then so something about it, but I at least wanted to put it in writing to try to sort out my thoughts, I don't think it helped much tough - I'm still indecisive about it. Ha!
Actually... I think I might be closer to knowing how I want to move forward with this than I thought. I'm thinking I'd like to take my sewing to a different blog along with another project of mine and reassess this space (or maybe a completely new one? again, so indecisive right now!) just for illustrations and try to dedicate more time to drawing to get some commercial work - which I could really use at the moment!
This has been more longwinded that I anticipated (and longer than usual!) but it turns out it has helped me put my thought in order a little bit after all. I don't know where this will al go but what I do know is that i need some change, either here or elsewhere.
