I have been enjoying sitting down and drawing as much as I can, lately. I think I said this in a previous post, but I just like saying it out loud. I didn't realize how long it has been since I really produced something I loved that was just for myself. I usually draw sketches for myself and if I'm drawing like a birthday picture or something for someone I have to give it away to them. It definitely helps that I've been restocking my art supplies since purging a couple of weeks ago. That's not to say my art drawer isn't any less bursting at the seams... but that just means I need more storage space!
I have been trying to expand outside of simple sketching or trying out art supplies. I've been taking a lot of baby steps. I will always be astounded at how much time I dedicated to drawing when I was in school. Now that I'm ADULTING it's much harder, but I'm making it more of a priority this year (9*_*)9 So far so good! I have really been enjoying working with watercolors and mixing media. I recently drew Nao again and compared her to a drawing I did about six months ago and the difference is pretty staggering. It gives me hope T-T Onwards to creating more art!
Personal life wise, everything has been going swimingly. Josh and I had grown accustomed to staying in all weekend while living in the apartment and we want to change that! To be fair, we did that because we felt bad for leaving Hershel most of the day at home by himself, but the puppy-parent guilt has waned a bit and now we feel more comfortable going to a movie or getting dinner after work and having mini day trips every once in a while over the weekend. They have been really lovely! We certainly eat better food. Our favorite trip to take is to Mitsuwa which is about an hour away from us. We go there for food and shopping~ On our most recent trip I found a variety of sizes of the Pen-Tec pen I've been loving recently so it was an awesome find. We also made a trip to this store that was jam packed with Gundam and a few other figures. I found this Sonico figure and was instantly like NEED. But... I have no display case to put her in and I would be terrified of keeping her on my desk T-T Please Lord don't let me get back into figure collecting, I can't do that AND pine for luxury bags T-T It doesn't help that Josh has been actively starting his figure collecting career. BAH!
I hope you have been having a wonderful week so far!
