Well I said I would do 5 posts in 5 days and I did but I don’t think I’ll do it again in a hurry. I chose the wrong week for a start, too much going on and though doing the challenge over on the Monster in the Next Room improved my drawing the nature of the illustrations here don’t lend themselves to speed and my painting seemed to get worse. With a cartoon you know where it’s going to end and that you’re going to get there but with a picture it’s not the same and I found I had not time to realise my vision of the illustration or the writing.
I also found that when I started writing a post I couldn’t stop and bang went another few hours.
I did find giving myself a challenge was a good way to discipline myself to do something and it also makes me think more about the direction of my blogging. I got some more pictures done and it kept me out of trouble too I guess so it wasn’t all bad. Still, the house is filthy and I am living in the vain hope that some nice young men will appear at the door and offer to clean it for me…
My favourite post of the week was the Tabby Fish & The Guillamene one from Wednesday.
For today’s picture…Rain Over the Comeraghs at Sunset…I just threw a load of paint on the paper and let it dribble around a while, scanned it and threw it up here and said ‘Thank God that’s over!”
