Writing Panel“Writing” doesn’t always mean writing. But I swear I’m being mostly good this month.

(Except for not working on the project I’m supposed to be working on. Don’t tell anyone.)


A storm is brewing

Storm rough

First pass

Storm bold

Supposedly the final, but the letters smeared a little (which seems somehow appropriate for a stormy piece). I think the speck is from the scanner.

Some hand lettering I did this week. Copic markers, a Copic multiliner, and a Gelly Roll pen.

New Year, New Blogging Goals

So I sort of fell off the blogging wagon at the end of last year. Honestly, I just wasn’t feeling up to it. But after a few months off, I’m ready (ish) to step back into the blogging pool. We’ll see how it goes.

Mostly I’m hoping to keep the same tentative schedule. I.e. at least one post a week, broken up as follows:

  • Monday/Tuesday: Something with panels, like my post on skimming ahead. Or possibly something about reading, or book reviews. (I’m adding that part.)
  • Wednesday/Thursday: Food, or other things I buy way too much of–art supplies, notebooks, etc.
  • Friday/Saturday/Sunday: Sketch/something about art, or possibly about writing. Maybe social media/blogging admin posts, like this one, as relevant.

I should probably post this somewhere else, so I can find it easily. *I’ll get right on that.*

Aside from the schedule, I think my main goal (or maybe more like a wish?) with blogging this year is to keep it from feeling like an obligation. Basic as it may sound, I want to blog because I want to blog, not because I feel like I have to.

The one-post-a-week goal… that’s just to make me sit down at the computer. It can be surprisingly hard to make myself do things, even things I know I’ll enjoy. Chilling out with a bunch of YouTube videos is so much easier.

So we’ll see how it goes. With any luck (and a smidge of self-discipline), I should be back here next week. For now, I hope you’re all having a great 2015, and…
