Little by little

I have no spaceeeeee

Because of the remodeling works in my house, it’s really hard to work. But I’m slowly getting there. I almost have no room for doing things, but I try. I decided to use a sketchbook with black sheets to practice some lettering.

Very appropriate under the circumstances

Ninja class

Ninja as in “I was a ninja in getting to that class” kind of way. My former uni had a free class on.. er.. engraving? Google is not helping me to find the word. It is the system where you carve a piece of wood or foam, put ink on it and then sandwich it between a piece of paper and a press. I know it has a proper name in english, but I can’t find it.

ANYWAY.

The class was for students and alumni, and even while I was the only one not currently studying there and it was a bit odd, I don’t regret it one bit. We did fun things and even when I did know the basics of the subject, going to a class like this always opens up possibilities and motivates you to not only practice but try new things. And obviously, you can play around with the materials and everything is there, ready for you to use.

We finished the class quite late, but it was all good! That way I got to skip rush hour, being all crammed in a bus is no picnic when you’re carrying fresh painted things.

Practicing

I wear glasses. Not permanently, but very often, as I have to focus on detailed things a lot. But the thing is, I’m also very light sensitive, so wearing sunglasses when I’m out is a must. So that means drawing outside is a bit of a nightmare, because I have to choose which glasses to wear, and screw up my eye sight in one of two ways.

Still, I tried for a little while the other day. I didn’t last very long, but drawing outside did feel super artsy. Here’s a picture.
