After experiencing significant project drop last week, I'm getting back into the groove of fun art again... sort of.
July is here, so it's time to look back on Q2, 2021, and reflect on how I fared with art. Keeping a quarterly reflection is one of my Big Art Goals for this year. Check out my review of Q1 (Jan - March).
It's the end of June and the Weekly Art Dispatch is back in publication! I've had a good rest from the newsletter, and now I'm ready to resume it for Q3, 2021.
Art has been powering along: learning new techniques, applying it to projects. Here's a summary of what I learned and drew in June.
Ah, this is going to be a short newsletter. This week has been somewhat unproductive regarding art -- I've been preoccupied with non-art things, including playing Mass Effect: Legendary Edition, which was the recently released remaster of that iconic video game series. I continued with study art, and started some fun art pieces, but haven't finished any of those unfortunately!
I'm also going to take a short hiatus from writing this Art Dispatch. I've published it weekly for over 5 months! It's been a great record of my learning and an accountability tool, but I can feel myself getting a bit fatigued with the pace. To avoid burning out, I'll take a break for the month of June, and resume the weekly posts when I make my Quarterly Art Review at the end of June. I'll still be drawing fun and study art of course, and will keep posting them on Instagram and Tumblr. At least, that's the plan!
This Dispatch is a bit late as I've been AFK for a lot of this weekend. (Amongst other things, I spent all Sunday bouldering with a friend - it was a great deal of fun, but I am a great deal unfit. I'm still feeling the post-workout ache!)
Not as much art this week as I've been trying to juggle Drawabox homework with traditional drawing with digital art... but I made an important breakthrough.
