There is a chance that weekday routine will return on Monday, or soon after, depending on how soon new weekday Mass schedules are decided upon. Hopefully, when that happens, a measure of normality and especially creative normality will return.
In the mean time, two of the Inktober Socket Head pictures got coloured:
Day 25, Tasty
Day 23, Ancient
And a 'looking to the future' meme/comic
And some sketches that might be preparation for a 3D version of this red tugboat:
And the front view
Here's to hoping that fruitful new beginnings are around the corner for all of us as this long pause begins to lift away.
You know how Kermit the Frog used to say, 'It's not easy being green.'
Well at the moment, it's not easy being creative either.
It has been neatly summed up by @evancabnet on Twitter thus:
"WRITERS. I have a secret to share with you. Every single day, I speak with a different playwright (or screenwriter, or novelist) who confesses they haven’t been able to concentrate and they aren’t getting anything done."
As at today it has had 31.7K likes and 4,9K Retweets since Apr 17.
Comments attached to that Tweet proved that artists, illustrators and graphic designers were all feeling it too.
Many of those comments put my own feelings in to words.
What I have been slowly working on is colouring some of the black & white images from Socket Head's Inktober 2019 adventures.
Overgrown Day 14
Treasures Day 21
Dark Day 26
Coat Day 27
Maybe, just maybe, if I get them all coloured I might make a small non-standard story book out of them. But there are 16 more to do......
