Life has been turbulent in a variety of ways, including downs, dramatic downs, life threatening downs, and the occasional moment of not suck. We're working on making that last thing the default state of my mind, but its going to take time and its gonna -wait for it- suck. But that's just how it is, and I'm not in a self pity mood.
I've been doing some plant stuff. Put together a pretty sizable container garden, have started keeping a couple dozen houseplants, and am in the experimental stage of terrarium building. (Currently eliminating a fungus gnat infestation before I continue forward.)
But I do want to draw again. So I've decided to try one of the October challenges, and I picked Poketober
(Oh yes the blog has also gotten some minor updates, I'm working on making it look nicer. I also did some work on my Redbubble page, and mothballed my Weasyl account.)
Because I'm still sick (and like I said on my first entry) I get some extra rules though:1) I don't have to be on time. Its the goal, but if I'm still finishing in December then so be it.2) It doesn't have to be a finished piece. Just a sketch is OK. Its also OK if I was to experiment and do something different/weird.
If I don't put those rules in place I'll just get stressed out, miserable, and make myself sicker. Anyway now that I'm done justifying myself to no one in particular, I'll call it a journal. More talk next time.
