It's purple

I finally finished GESSO SQUAD Adventures Book Two.  It took six months to get this one done. I believe since I completed two last year and one the year before that I was on book overload. It's time-consuming working on any project whether it's a book or film. Anyone who creates books or films will tell you the work involved like storyboarding, drawing, painting and many other tasks to be completed. My chronic pain issues also impacted my ability to get anything done, there were just days when I didn't feel like drawing anything. The book is kind of a purple color and is available online at both Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

 This month, I donated drawings to my local non profit organization to be given to people. I do this every year. Fun to create this using coloring pages I finish and then I cut out the images, glue them onto a blank piece of paper. Later, I add my own drawings.

diamond art in sequence

I discovered paint by sticker a while back and recently was introduced to diamond art club. It involves placing small circle shaped dots onto a color coded sheet which eventually forms a larger picture. 

This was time consuming and somewhat messy. 

Small dots would often bounce off the applicator when pressed onto the coloring page. Sometimes they would get stuck on the applicator pen lodged inside the small metal tub. There were several times when I had to sweep up small pieces of the different colored dots from my clothing, floor and seats. 

The next time I venture into the world of sticker art at least I'm prepared for how to manage the diamond art.
