Politics is a g

Politics isn’t my topic. Sometimes that is a great motivator. Yesterday an artist posted #riseupshowupunite I woke up to kites and watercolor. That didn’t happen. Oragami paper worked great.

I’ve got the election on my mind. We all do. The last one broke my heart. I know that there’s some pessimism in this but the idea is that there are challenges in our lives. We come acroos defeat. That doesn’t mean we’ve lost. It means we have yet to win. We can’t lose hope.

Yor turn. Use construction paper. Color over copy paper. That’s a good idea. Paint. Create.

lettering with watercolor

Today I needed to practice writing with watercolor. I’m working on my lettering skills. I wrote with tempera too. It would be easier to choose a font. That’s exactly why I will write out every single word of Road Trip.

The reason I work on these books is to work on my skills but as a creative I need these words. I wonder who needs them too. I’m grateful for my growing tribe. I’m grateful for this new course. Adolfo we’re going to learn a lot together.

Lettering with watercolor takes getting use to. You do have to find the brush that feels comfortable.

getting better…

First book layout is done!

It’s been crazy, my eyes are tired but I think I’m done with the lettering.

I finished the layout earlier and somehow it didn’t save. I kept making all these mistakes. I needed to change the book size because the images didn’t look right. Back and forth and back and forth and now I’m done. Now it’s time to relax and refresh my eyes for the next phase of editing.

Good night universe.
