When I was young (first/second grade? Sometime in the Troy era) I remember watching quite a bit of Mark Kistler on public television. Mark was (and still is!) an artist who taught drawing skills aimed at kids. I still remember his little “Draw! Draw! Draw!” chant he’d do whenever he’d draw a bunch of lines or some other series of shapes/figures. I always thought he was super cool.
Anyway. Not sure what the heck made me remember him today, but I did and so there ya go.
It’s a freaking Christmas miracle.
Ugh, I want to draw, but I feel like I have no creativity in my brain right now. Or more like there’s creativity in there, but it doesn’t want to come out.
Which is frustrating, but not unfamiliar.
YOU GOT IT, BROTHER.
I call it “Total Eclipse of the Heart” because the eclipse is tomorrow and I’m super imaginative and clever like that.
So last Tuesday, as I was walking through Eau Claire, I got stopped by a reporter from Global News. He asked if I had a few minutes to be part of the “audience” for an artist who was using a miniature kitchen to make miniature food.
I’m not shown for very long (thank god; I was on mile 9 of my walk and looked like garbage), but I’m there for a bit.
MY MOM IS HERE, YAY
Also, have an art.
Edit: my mom bought me Klein bottle earrings. They’re awesome.
It appears that I’ve started to move away from hearts and more towards circles now. Meh.
I’m bored. Have some garbage art from my past, because why not.
While I don’t like like this one, I like it more than the last one I posted on here.
Hahahaha, man, I wish I would have finished this.
Aneel was one of my best friends in high school, which of course meant I had to make fun of him using Flash. I also made a parody of “Goodnight Moon” about him, ‘cause what else are friends for?
Edit: here’s a Strawberry Clock from back when I was all about the Clock Crew. I miss pretending to know how to Flash.
Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeey have a drawing. Blah.
So I haven’t drawn in like 500 years. But I had some a lot of free time in the Airport on Monday night last week, plus some more yesterday, so here ya go.
Tonight I was bored so I Photoshopped the hell out of some of my art. Got some cool results.
Here’s “Chameleon” crystallized.
“Fractured Fresnel” with color halftone.
“Persistent Petals” with all sorts of things.
“Data” extruded twice (this is my favorite).
“Eyes of the Sphere” extruded once.
Heeeeeeeeeeeeey have a thing.
It sucks, but it’s a thing.
(I need to learn how to draw.)
Heeeeeeeey, have some airport art. Certainly not my best, but I didn’t have that much time in Seattle (which is abnormal) so this is all you get.
So here’s something kinda cool: earlier today I wanted to find a drawing that I’d favorited on DeviantArt but didn’t want to go and log into my DA account itself, so instead what I did was Google “LadyLeibniz,” my DA username, so that I could just see my profile and find the drawing I wanted from my favorites list.
However, when I was looking at the search results, I found that a good number of my drawings have been posted on Tumblr and have quite a few notes—29, 156, 194, 621—snazzy! I had no idea my art had been Tumbld.
This also makes me appreciate even more those people who take time to properly credit the artists of pictures that they post to Tumblr. All of the ones I found had the title plus “by LadyLeibniz” (which, of course, is why I could find them by Googling) and most had links right back to my DA account.
Sorry, I just think that’s cool.
Okay, I definitely recommend this coloring book to everyone (once it’s back in stock). If you are like me and enjoy doing super tedious things to chill out, this is a wonderful outlet. Have the first page colored Claudia-style!
This book also gives me a chance to continue watching Achievement Hunter’s Let’s Play Minecraft videos. I stopped around 60-something before; now I’m watching them again and coloring at the same time. Good way to relax!
So today’s the last day of classes! All that’s left is my final for Multivariate Analysis, which is next Thursday.
And Nate, being the awesome person that he is, got me a present for the end of the semester:
It’s a coloring book! The designs are super intricate:
I’ll use this when I want to draw and I don’t have any ideas for designs.
(Which happens more often than I’d care to admit.)
