First I think it - in bed
then I sketch it - in bed, fine toon it (clean it up, erase. Pencil in and letter -in bed.
I've even coloured and painted in bed - not easy or worth the stress of it not being 'better' so that is it.. no more painting. I need to paint in with black ink, colour, wash, scan resize, organize and mail out and post. If I'm up for too long I am dizzy so..this is the best I can do for a few.
It is giving/forcing me more time to read, research and as always be inspired. I've done several drawings I call 'Chances are..' I can't seem to get that song out of my head, and it's before my time.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7QAqkGHD4Q8 My hope is that these toons hit home with those a bit younger. If you do this Chances are..this will happen. I never listened when anyone lectured me- but I did pay attention to cartoons... chances are it might work! ;)It might sink in! I'll take those chances!
A few on the gateway theory -it continues to blow my mind people think Cannabis is a gateway drug. ONLY the un-educated on the topic - so thats's good. There is hope. Usually with one question I can 'shut' them up - they just have to - stop and think about it for one second... and it makes COMMON sense.
I NEED visual, they sink in faster and last longer! A picture is worth a thousand words and I enjoy that challenge. I must saw today I feel GOOD mentally! My twitch still here but no where what it was and for the first time in a long time I no longer feel like I am dying! YEHAW!
Storm told me I was being selfish not seeing those who I care about and visa versa because of my face- he is right. I can't hide. I will be very truthful and say that I know I look like I've aged 10 years in just the past year alone. I have photos to prove it- BUT I have been ill- It took me a while to get like this and it will take a me a while to get better. We are so hard on ourselves- BEAUTY is only skin deep. We all learn this sooner or later -
some because of time, other because of illness or an operation. So I shall embrace the new me because I am still here! That is all that matters. Below some fun on the laptop..
I am surrounded by love. Storm and I also played with a new program! hee hee hee!
I will try to be a patient patient and hope you can be patient for new cartoons ...
