I am here in pieces and strange movements (as always). It's about time for some more warped scans, I think. Recording some movements and light shifts is nice, a nice time to have with the scanner to expose the smoky goblin I truly am inside.
Scanners are such great cameras for bringing out the spookiness of our movements across time. It's interesting that a lot of things we consider spooky play with elements of time. Things moving too fast or too slow, light doing things it shouldn't, perceptions of impossibility. Stretching, warping, and glitching. We're scared of time.
But we are time.
Time is us.
It's been sunny and nice lately. Here are some mystery images to celebrate.
I'm collecting some scraps - pieces of drawings, paintings, and the occasional label deemed important enough to be kept. For collaging and trinket purposes (sometimes it's nice to collect something, even if it's just for a little while).
I'm feeling very nice because I have some new sunscreen and some recently purchased jumpers to wear and feel very comfy in. My new fleece is the best, and I just feel very comforted by all of my clothes at the moment. It's just very good and nice.
I've been drawing lots of tiny bunnies, and I also got a nice big cuddly bunny (from Morrisons). He is so soft and cute, and I love his big floppy ears and his ribbon.
I'm not sure what to name him.
Here are some miscellaneous journal pages. I had to do something a bit messy here, and it's always a nice start to something to just dive in and stick something down and make a thing.
It doesn't matter what a beginning looks like once you get to the end, so to begin with, here's some disjointed and mismatched pages full of paint and haphazardly stuck on elements. A nice mess, and as good a beginning as any.
I've been getting into watching LPs again lately (starting with HCBailly's let's play Final Fantasy XIII series) and I started watching a new k-drama too, which may the best yet (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, the third k-drama I've started so far - after Pinocchio and Hwarang).
I've also been intermittently playing Cook, Serve, Delicious (because I guess I love to cook lobster) and I've been reading bits and pieces.
I've been working on some journal pages too, and actually these mark the last diary pages in my current diary, so I have to designate a new sketchbook for it, which is always a nice moment.
Maybe I'll change my style a little bit with the switch. We'll see.
It's almost time for the cherry blossoms to strike the town of Boy again, so in preparation I'm trying to make some small changes to the town - a little bit of renovation here and there to get it ready to look as nice as possible when all the blossoms are out.
Rudy is out most recent new villager, so I'm making sure he's feeling welcomed by everyone, and I'm saving as many bells as possible to invest in a few building changes. Our most pink human resident, Berry, is working hard to change her interior around and make it look new and different, and I'm looking into all the new bits and pieces we can get at the campsite to see what extra charm we can add to Toto's hotel (because it still doesn't look all that hotel-like).
I've been catching bugs a lot, so I have a new nickname amongst some of the villagers. At least they're happy to help in keeping all the flower gardens growing.
It's strange to have a town full of cats now, but I love them all.
I spent Easter digging eggs from the ground (and luckily that ended up generating some extra income for the town too). It's nice to have a special guest around.
Here's Berry hanging out in my bedroom. She's got lots of decorating to do in her own home, so I wonder how that will turn out.
I'm trying to draw a lot of stuff and have fun (of course), and right now I'm trying to work on notebooks as much as possible. Partly because I still have a lot of notebooks and they need to be used, and partly because it gives me a nice sense of purpose and routine to make myself do something daily, or to make myself keep filling in new pages.
I've been using lots of blue and green paint (I love them together), making nice sea greens and leafy/foresty things. I'm in the mood to be messy and scribbly, and to cut things up and stick things together and scuff everything.
