potential bullet journaling. 

I blame @cadadr for this one although jokes aside not even sure it is a bullet journal with no bullet points in sight and no todos or notes, and just appending this to my existing sketchbook.

worst case scenario I indexed my sketchbook which is a good thing?

I might still swap back to zim wiki once I sync my notebook to phone but this will be a good experimentation (or an absolute time sink of amateur illustrations. xD). so far using it for teaching and memories.

Sometimes creativity feels like this superposed state that collapses when observed. or that's has been my experience.

Trying to recover from burnout and to remember how to be creative while balancing online presence... Not sure if I will make it but at least I am grateful that doesn't have algorithms that punish you more for not being present

there is an ugly duckling stage to every drawing and painting. I think it is easy to assume at that stage that you failed at it when the truth is that it is part of the process. I am slowly getting better at not forgetting that.

sometimes when I return to a piece after a week, 2 weeks it feels like I am playing exquisite corpse with myself, only in time dimension. "what was I even planning to do when I begun this? no matter, what can I do with this thing the past me did..."

day 13: "fire" and day 14: "cider/apples" (suggested by @aldersprig )

very behind and I fear I will continue to be behind until next wednesday. All the same....

oh and it is the first time in 15 years that I have used watercolors... yeah well it still went better than I was expecting, sort of... xD You might see them again on later images.

day 12: "moebius" (suggested by @cidney)

Interesting fact about the möbius strıp ıs that it actually only has a single surface. That wasn't the issue through. The execution issues mostly stemmed from the fact that flat paper as thin as it is, is NOT a 2-D surface. :D

Forgot to say last time but still accepting prompts on mastodon. :)

day 11: "compost" (suggested by @Wolthera )

This was actually drawn last night, and I thought I would photograph it daytime with today's drawing. (as you can tell things didn't QUITE go according to plan)

All the same :)

While drawing today's prompt, my 3D printer was working too.

One of the bigger time wastes I have doing these challenges is trying to cut a lot of paper at exact dimensions, having to measure each, and keep things square.

So designed this little thing using and while it took a few tweaks - and I will iterate to make it easier to trim multiple cards- it is square and it works

(and yes, it is a messy print, I had my printer tuned, then firmware got updated... )

Day 8. "Fiery Sun" and Day 9 "Tiger" (both suggested by @cidney)

the latter managed to involve reference images, if you can believe it.

I am still accepting prompts via mastodon. :)

day 7 "sound" (suggested by @fredmbarros)

this one was though.

I do like the final concept, the execution... well lets just say I am not tagging this with "traditional art" (I would normally redraw this but for this year's daily challenge I am really trying to avoid doing that)

day 6. "shade" (suggested by @gbrnt)

I am a day behind again, but will stop here today. .

Yes I do still accept suggestions on mastodon! :)

(because these are all edited using and photographed in )


Day 5: wind (suggested by @stagnogley)

Went a bit lighthearted on this one. Also now caught back up despite the challenges today :)

Still happily accepting suggestions for prompts on mastodon.

Day 4: Pure acid (suggested by @Sandra )

greens as promised. :) I will be posting day 5 later tonight.

I am still accepting suggestions for prompts on mastodon.

day 3.

"Perfume" (suggested by @yncke)

back to the square format for a bit as well as abstract

I am still accepting prompt suggestions on mastodon. :)

day 2. I am not sure if "corrupted filesystem" counts as a conventional prompt but when you spend days trying to rescue data... I guess this prompt comes from life. thank you life. ;)

1 "denim tree" Didn't exactly go according to plan but then again neither did the day. :)

Thanks to @Sandra for the prompt. suggest me a prompt for day 2 (if I get multiple prompts they will be used later)
