banana peel

REVISE 5/30/07

I colored the peel and liked the way it turned out. I almost went to paint the background the dark mahogony of my desk, but then decided I liked the peel standing alone. I have learned that my hi-tec C's are not waterproof.

At work yesterday, I ate a banana. Then I drew the peel.

I can't exactly whip out the watercolors at work. It's hard to squeeze a sketch in as it is. But I do plan on coloring this - It's on my long list of sketchbook work and actual illustrations that I plan on doing. Tonight after work, instead of doing artwork right when I got home (which is usually 7:00), I went to a friends house, at chinese food and played the Wii. I had never played it before, and I think I needed it - I have been feeling very stressed out lately with things - it was so much fun! I Haven't played a video game for years. Not since college probably, when I was REALLY bad at Tony Hawk. I think I gave up video games after attempting that game.

Now it's time for bed, gotta wake up at 6:00 tomorrow and do it all over again. But I won't leave my sketchbook on the scanner like I did last night... I missed my moleskin today.

I have decided I'm just going to stay up tomorrow night until I finish Dwight. I think that all-nighters are the only way I will be able to get any of my personal work done.

Hey there, my fellow blog-crazed maniac! I want to let you know, I think you're doing great!!! I had no idea you worked such long hours, and you've still got new drawing material all the time, plus your drawings are looking awesome. I think it's really important to do what you did the other night, take time off to just goof off and have fun! Otherwise when you do get time to paint, you'll be all sad and stressed and it won't be fun and exciting like it's supposed to be. In fact, I am having a wii get together with one of my friends Sat. night. I have never played the wii, I'm very excited!
Sorry for the long response. But your banana looks fabulous, I think you drawing so much is great (you draw like 90% more than I do). And your drawings ALWAYS inspire me to get my butt in gear. You're a super hard worker, so don't let the artist angst get you down. Maybe you can finish Mr. Dwight this weekend??
Okay I'm done. Miss you!

Was that the pen that turned the yellow kind of purple. I like it! Perfect complimentary colors.
