What’s everyone else doing?

I’ve taken this week off work, mainly to catch up on some projects (shockingly, I don’t make art for a living, its just a hobby) and procrastinate on said projects.  I’ve also been sick, though, so yesterday was a waste of a day, sleeping, drinking fluids, and reading.  Today was far more productive.  I’ve done the underdrawings for about 4 out of the 13 demons I intend to draw as part of the Old Scratch “13 Demons and 13 Devils” series that I hope to integrate into a book.   Nothing ready to post yet.

I haven’t forgotten my centipede print project either.  But right now I’m low on printing ink, and just waiting to be well enough to venture out and get some supplies.

On to procrastination: today I ran into a couple of cool posts on Drawn! about the tools and workspaces that other artists use.  Since I never went to art school, I’m forever keeping a lookout for materials papers, and brands that various artists and illustrators use, especially those that may not be obvious to me.  Likewise, it’s nice to see how other people arrange their art spaces.

The Tools Artists Use is a series of interviews by Jenny Vorwaller regarding, um, well the tools that artists use.  The Drawn! post about creative workspaces has multiple links that also have multiple links that should keep you busy for the next half hour.  For me, it’s back to work.
