Less words, more pictures

Summer is the time for playful imaginings and exploration. It is hard to find succinct descriptions and any structure for what has been happening over these months. Instead, I'll leave you with
 some more doodles that came out of those strange and meandering days.

Living and working in the same space tends to prohibit most encounters with traditional media & painting (you know, for lack of space). The solution is watercolor! Sadly, over 10 years of art-y training, I managed to avoid watercolors as a whole. Perhaps intentionally, and perhaps I just wasn't whimsy enough. There is a sort of controlling nature one develops as a digital artist, and fumbling around with something like watercolors is simultaneously a liberating and frustrating experience. I still have to figure out a style (and the skill) but this will be an adventure nonetheless.
