I’m having a small flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome, and a mild dip in inspiration/motivation for a little bit there. I’ve still found some time to draw before being completely burned out. Also, catching up with “The Walking Dead” and taking in “The Crown” on Netflix has eaten up a bit of my spare time. Does this mean we’ll be seeing more British Royalty fan art popping up in the near future? Aside from an Anne Boleyn piece I’ve put aside months ago, not bloody likely.
‘Anne of Green Gables’ by L.M. Montgomery was one of my favourite books growing up. She is unquestionably a Canadian icon, which is why I wanted to draw her to celebrate Canada’s 150th.
I have noticed one thing I don’t really do, or at least post about: my sketches. This blog, being about my personal art progress, lacks records of me actually practicing. Admittedly, I rounding out my drawings with more finished lines, colour and shading and I like showing off those. I do sketch, but they are more like doodles and to me, it’s kind of embarrassing to show off. See, I’m still comparing myself to every other artist out there.

Between Sims 4 and suffering from carpal tunnel syndrome and a bad back, I haven’t been drawing much. I wanted to get a whole slew of stuff done for the holidays, but that probably isn’t going to happen.
I’m actually suffering from pretty severe back pain right now, which probably happened a day or two after a bike ride home. I don’t know. In any case, I’m stuck on the couch and it’s hard for me to walk. Fortunately, I’ve got some time off, which I was supposed to use to enjoy this summer. Oh well.
