IF: Spring

Hooray! This week's Illustration Friday for "Spring" was loosely inspired by playing many headache-inducing hours of Pikmin 2 the last few days.

Went out and bought a small case of watercolors today. Brings me back to the days of elementary school and the little cakes of crayola which you could never make a good violet color with. I really didn't like watercolors for a very very long time, but I've been trying to motivate myself to draw and paint more away from home, therefore I bought a nice travel-size set and am going to be making a new Mochi Ice Cream sketchbook for myself
to paint in.

I've been stressing a lot over making drawings for work. It's cool that I have a job where I get to use my creative noodle once in a while, but I keep forgetting that I need to make art just for myself too, otherwise I get really anxious and depressed from having too many thoughts and ideas in my head and not having a place to let them out.

Oh yes, I noticed that Livejournal Syndication re-posted an old entry. This is because I went back the other night to edit a spelling error, and so for some reason stupid LJ syn. seemed to think it was a new entry. I guess. Whatevs.

Finally, check out
Jason Levesque's website, because his illustration skills are amazing, AND he is awesome enough to have downloadable photoshop brushes on his site, a couple of which I've used for this piece.
