Well I have been focusing on illustration as I have a deadline coming up so I still have had no time for my second love. :( (crafts I miss you and I promise to spend time with you soon!) My illustration project is coming along and will be finished by next week so maybe I will post the results. depending, you know. This project involves the sketch of the little girl I posted last week in a sequence of 8 small storyboard type illustrations. Right now I am working in water colour and using a pretty realistic style so it it challenging. Yesterday I had a MAJOR set back which is complicated and upsetting to explain. It involves the limitations of the brief (assignment) and a misunderstanding between me and my tutor. I feel now that my project is very compromised and I can't complete it the way I was intending which means it won't be as good. Its like dying a little death inside and I actually wept while I made the necessary changes. It sounds dramatic but it was painful thing for me.
I am very blessed to have Luke. He works in the art/design world as well and has experienced the similar sense of frustration as loss when projects he is working on get compromised/changed. So he understands me and doesn't think I am just 'too hard on my work'
and taking myself too seriously. He had flowers waiting for me when I got home from the studio and then he took me out for dinner. what a chap!
Also we have reorganised out tiny studio apartment and added in another desk for me. YEAH! I'll share :)
Are you all are having a good week? Sorry I have been neglectful blogger. Hopefully things will calm down a bit and I will have more time to read and comment in blog world. Cheers for all your comments about my illustration work. I got a major case of the warm fuzzies after reading all your encouraging words.
