The lead up to Halloween tends to see a rush of orders for me. Several sets of ear wings have been bought or custom ordered over the last week so the creative space is a little crazy right now. The sketch of my nephew has had to be put on hold for a little while as I get on top of custom orders.
Some of the pieces I've been building have had a remarkable sense of magic about them.
I've also been getting myself into a healthier art habit, making drawing and making happen at bare minimum once a week, though usually every second day. It's good to feed the art habit, it helps to feed the soul. I bought some lovely tinted textured papers which I want to use for re-visiting a drawing style I explored some in my Degree in Visual Arts. It was over 10 years ago now, and I don't have good photos, but I remember enough to give me a start and it's fun to play with the calligraphic arcs again. I've taken to carrying a new small sketchbook with me, and playing with conte or a calligraphy pen or just sketching in graphite helps to wake up that way of seeing. It feels good, and maybe I'll have some saleable items after some more practise and play. Provided I get some time after this rush of orders of course.
Time to get into that art room I suppose.
