one of my goals this year is to be more transparent about my artistic process. it sounds generous (maybe?) but it's actually an excuse for me to re-engage with my art. when i quit my jobs in 2016 to start gentle thrills, i thought i'd have more time to draw and paint, but it ended up being quite the opposite--running a retail brand solo chews up so! much! time!
so i'm starting out by recording my daily sketchbooking...
my sister & her engineer boyfriend built me this excellent contraption so i can take videos of myself working. u can see a little glimpse of it on the right, but it's basically this metal weapon with a dismembered tripod attached to it, held down by some bricks. i am absolutely going to injure myself with it. there are literally screws sticking out of the base :-) in retrospect i probably could have purchased a real tripod, but why, when u can diy & hurt yourself?!
