Things are about to get weird!
I’m leaving the country on my honeymoon in a few weeks, but I am hoping this chapter will come to an end before I leave. I don’t know if I’ll have time with all the wedding planning to schedule enough posts in advance to not have a brief break while I’m gone. Hrm… But don’t worry. It will only be a week hiatus! I guess I could probably get to the end of the chapter more quickly if I didn’t draw pages with only shots of nature like this one, huh?
Blergh, I have a stomach ache. I am concerned that I have another allergy because this has been happening a lot. Usually it happens when I eat out or at someone else’s house. I am already lactose intolerant and I don’t eat any meat or animal products. Now I am wondering if I have a gluten allergy. It’s hard to pin down, so I may go see a doctor. I really hope it’s not Celiac Disease. If I can’t eat gluten, I will probably only be able to eat vegetables and rice and stuff won’t I? I will miss bread a lot if that’s the case. Oh well. Maybe I will turn into some kind of vegetable superhero.
Thanks for reading guys and girls. I really appreciate it!
I tried drawing in public the other day! I am usually too shy to do so, but it felt great. A friend joined me, so that made it easier. I think it’s a good thing to do as an exercise in confidence and comfort while drawing. Oddly enough, it seemed to take the edge off. Because I was in a different environment, I wasn’t over-thinking every gesture and line. It made the process a little more natural, being in an unnatural environment. I have no idea if that makes sense to anyone else, but it makes sense to me. I may try to do it again next week.
I hope you like this page! It was a blast to draw. No spoilers, but we are getting to the end of the chapter…
Today was a stressful day, but drawing really helps. Sometimes it’s hard to get motivated when it comes to art, but it always makes me feel better. My fiancee and I were talking about writing/art the other night and how amazing it feels to make and consume something original. She talked about the feeling you get when you read a book and it’s like you are stepping into the author’s mind. I often feel that way about music. Composers can create so many new emotions for me. It’s always been a dream of mine to create stuff that will make others feel the same way. I think that is one of the greatest gifts you can give. Fingers crossed that it will happen. I’m definitely going to keep trying.
