So for those of you who know me and follow my sporadically posted blog, you know that sometimes I set a goal for myself and I hit it up full steam ahead until low and behold life sets in and screws it up somehow. Well the last few weeks have been no different.
If you haven't been reading, shame on you!, I set a goal to create an illustration every week for Illustration Friday
. My goal was to do this until my 30th birthday in October. Which would give me about 10 weeks of Illustrations. Well needless to say, after week 3 life hit me like a ton of bricks and it has been downhill since then.
I've had a couple going aways, a new project, work was insane and two concerts (of which I will soon be posting photos and video of) one here and one in Florida. Doesn't sound like all that much does it? Your probably thinking ok well even with all that going on, surely you could bust out a couple simple illustrations? Actually, no I couldn't. Why? Well because on top of all of this I received a phone call from my landlord saying that they would like to sell the house and we have 30 days to GET OUT! Man in that instant I felt like Snoopy in the movie Snoopy Come Home
when he tries to go to the library and they just keep yelling at him in that deep voice "NO DOGS ALLOWED!". This was also parodied in the Family Guy episode Brian Goes Back to College
But chin up, all hope is not lost! I went online with one of my roommates and came to the realization that there definitely is a good chunk of places available! Whew! Now if only I can scrape up the cash to pay for the move Ill be all set ;) So instead of spending free time creating illos I've been spending it on Craigs List. But I wont sit here and complain about it because my roommate already has and instead of wasting my free time writing about it ill just leave this handy dandy little link for you to check out what he had to say about it right here
Ok so enough of the whining, back to me! In an attempt to regain control of my goal I'm going to make one small exception. I mean it really is about completing the goal and not necessarily how you complete the goal, or at least in this case it is. So I am posting Illo #4 out of 6. Topic = Play. Its one I did in pastels on newsprint. I was really pleased with the way texture on the guitar came out. Most of you who know me know I'm a digital girl and cant really draw all that well. So when I do its really an accomplishment. Let me know what you think of it. Also...I will be working on this weeks current topic which is run and then hopefully I will work on week #5 whos topic was match. I'm really looking forward to that one because I have a great idea that I cant wait to implement!
So here it is #4 out of 6. Topic: Play
