geekery, drawing and then some
I lost my drawing habit. I haven’t done any drawing or doodling in ages. I miss it, and yet I spend more time cleaning up than drawing…
This morning in bed I thought how it takes a month to create a habit, so I figured I’d start drawing one drawing a day in april.
After I got up I thought ‘screw April, start today!’.
So, as of today, for at least a month, I will make at least one drawing (no matter what) to kickstart my habit. I’ll call it my ‘30-day drawing challenge’.
I’ll keep you posted…
As long as I’ve had a computer I wanted to turn my handwriting into a font. I made some attempts to do so, but they failed due to lack of proper programs. Today I stumbled upon yourfonts.com ( through Drawn! ) and they offer just that.
Print out the form, fill it it, scan, upload and downnload your font. It took about 15 minutes in total. And it looks so cool :D
I had this crochet-itch yesterday, wanted to crochet something small. I can’t crochet much thanks to RA but my hands felt good so I looked for my hooks and some yarn and decided to try my hands on a ninja. After some work, this fellow turned out a bit bulky, but not too bad.
After I finished I went looking on the internet and found a whole new world of “amigurumi’s” with patterns and photos. My heart now overflows with belated acknowledgment for the hours I slaved and slaved as a child to crochet cute little creatures. Finally, people get it! Perhaps I can still find them somewhere and make photos…
In just about 15 minutes, the 21st SketchCrawl will start. I decided today to participate, although I won’t go out and meet people and draw with them. Too ill still, so my participating will consist mostly of couch-drawing. Still, I want to try it, spend the entire day (or at least most of it) drawing and sketching. As a warm-up, I’ve drawn my waterbottle.
Spend most of the day cleaning up to prepare. So I better draw ;)
I had to make food, and after throwing it in the pan to warm up I started drawing and got distracted. I feel pretty good about how this turned out, I haven’t done any drawing in ages (two or three months) because of my increased arthritis, and I found it didn’t start hurting more when drawing this. Possibly caused by having a painkiller less than an hour before though :)
I happily started some form of knitting with my addi Express circular knitting machine. Handling needles hurts my hands a lot and this little machine at least lets me do some creative stuff, knitting-wise. I made two armwarmers, in a happy turquoise colour.
