Things that I loved in August till now are :
1. Drawing ink
As I was packing I found this old Staedtler drawing ink I hadn’t used in a long time, I grabbed a few brushes and I’ve been writing and drawing with it. For me it’s such a rough medium, I’m using it to practice hand lettering and to do warm up sketches.
I also find it’s a great medium for me, for those days I feel really stressed and I just need to doodle something to get it out… like art therapy or something. You can check on instagram to see a quick warm up portrait I posted on IG.
2. Art For You Ear Podcast
I love this podcast, it’s about interviews with amazing artists, the questions are pretty random and they make for great conversations we wouldn’t have access to in a traditional art interview.
3. My cat
I love my Panza 24/7 but you know how pets sense when you’re feeling down or sick? well she’s been extra cuddly and sweet right at the moment I needed an extra boost of positive energy.
4. Stash Tea
This brand is really hard to find here, so whenever I see it I get a few boxes and lately I’ve been happily sipping pomegranate raspberry green tea and chai spice black tea.
Not for everyone, I know, but there are a few channels I really enjoy and I have their videos playing while I’m drawing.
6. Rediscovering music
I’m one of those that need music or even noise at all times, so I have videos, audio books, podcast or whatever as background noise. So I was making new playlist and I found these songs I LOVED a long long time ago:
A) Tonic’s “If you could only see”
B) Matchbox Twenty’s “Unwell”
C) Sarah McLachlan’s “Fallen”
What about you?
Did you blog your faves of the month? If you did leave a comment, I’d love to check it out.
Have a rad day!
