Long Weekend and the Blahs

It's the long weekend, which means, for most, bad beer and fireworks. The weather outside is beautiful and it's Monday at noon and I'm still in my pajamas. However, I've been having one of those days where everything just feels kind of bland. My two drawings felt laborious and I'm not too happy with them, but good drawings or not - it's nice to be productive.
I've had a healthy breakfast and I'm going out for lunch, so hopefully today picks up.

Short post for today, I suppose. I'm still working out what my show is going to be, and I'm excited to start working on some bigger pieces. I'll update with any developments as they come.

Edit: I wanted to add that I bought a new scanner on Saturday. These two drawings were scanned with it - first, mistakenly, on the "illustration" setting, which did not work at all, and then as colour photos, with success. Next stop, a good printer so I can (hopefully!) start selling prints.

A Month Later

Ok, I'm back. And it's been too long. Between going away for 2 weeks and then moving a week later, and then starting a new job, I've been distracted. But I'm back now, week to week. (I just unpacked and organized all of my art stuff!).
The top drawing - the one with the two girls - is kind of exciting for me, and here's why. Just a few days ago I found out that I've got gallery space for a show. A solo show! The final two weeks of August. And the reason why that drawing is significant is because You Make Me Feel so Misanthropic is (almost definitely) going to be the name of my show. So there's that.
Otherwise, there hasn't been much else going on. I'm living downtown now, after 4 years of being stuck in the no man's land of North Toronto, and it's really, really great.

So that's that till next week. More about the show to come.
