4th week of November’s Art Every Day and also in NaBloPoMo
Today is sARTurday and day #26 of AEDM and NaBloPoMo – did you all have a good Thanksgiving? Did you go wild, ahem, shopping yesterday on Black Friday?
My answer to question one is ‘yes’ and to no. two ‘nope’. Today would be a different story as it is Small Business Saturday, where local small businesses promote their brick and mortar shops, some with promotions, too. But I am not big on shopping, I prefer the cozy world of virtual business. Hence my store, which carries exclusive fine art pieces of mine, has just opened on ArtBoja.
So today I will most likely stay home and work on my computer (again) and then continue one of my many creative projects. Also, now that I have finished my photo series of the Pacific northwest with shots of mountains I need to find another – photo – subject for the remaining five days of November blogging month.
No photos for sARTurday today though. The other day I had this idea of trying to ‘manga-nize’ a photo of David, but then I saw the picture below from our vacation at the Outer Banks and thought I would try a manga style drawing of an ‘us-sie’ (= self-ie * 2). I started it on Thanksgiving as a sketch and inked and colored it yesterday. Here is the original photo for your info, and please remember that manga is a very, very stylized drawing form.
