I only got around to making one comic strip this week, but I still managed to stay pretty busy.
My class is now in full swing. I’ve read about 350 pages of history and theology and I’ve got about another 700 pages left to go. When my brain gets occupied with being busy, one of two things happen: My tired brain comes up with amazing comic ideas without even having to try, OR (more likely) I don’t have the energy to come up with anything worth drawing. The above offering is the one comic idea that came to me- the missing four are reflective of the second tired-brain option. BUT! I still wanted to draw, even though I had no ideas…. and, to that end, I’ve started drawing COLOURING SHEETS for my kids to work on!
This is my new favourite artistic endeavour… It requires EXACTLY 0% brain power to make, and it has the added bonus of giving my kids something to do! Not only that, I think they’ll bind up quite nicely/easily to make a fun colouring book to sell some day when we’re allowed to table at conventions again! They are inspired by a comic i made a few weeks ago about how I think coloring pages are dumb, and then I had friends tell me “I’d color that.” So here we are!
This last week, I also did a “how to make a repeating ribbon brush” tutorial! In Clip Studio. I don’t know how to do it in Photoshop but I guess I could figure that out if I were ever tempted to use photoshop again (I won’t be- clip studio for life!)
Thanks for reading! See you next week.
