ON THE EIGHTH DAY OF CREEPMAS MY MONSTERS GIVE TO YOU:
On a whim I decided tonight to draw. Not just doodle, but get down in in there and draw. I don't do it often, because I have a lot of...issues associated with it. To be perfectly honest with you guys, I sometimes downright hate drawing. It reminds me of bad childhood memories and of my mother, who was an amazing artist who killed herself. She was very talented, and very critical over everything I created for her.
So yeah, I think you can understand why drawing doesn't happen very often for me.
But sometimes I do it despite everything. And the whole time I fight the process like a honey badger, grunting and grumbling. Apparently I even hold my breath sometimes, at least that's what Lord Bearington says. He watched me as I made my most recent monstrosity. I had no idea. Guess it goes to show you how much I fight drawing. I suppose if I tried to do it more, it wouldn't be such a trail...
But for all this angst, I did draw something. I do LIKE making things. I like the act of creation and I am very supportive of others. My own work? It's a love/hate relationship. I have to wrestle demons to do it, and it becomes a huge production in my head. *sigh* And this thing I drew is a monster, so it was at least somewhat fun to draw. YAY! And it's one of my favorite monsters for this time of year...KRAMPUS!
I also altered some cards to give to folks. Wanna see my silly Creepmas cards?
The eyeball is my fav, I have to say...
You know what's the worst part about being an artist? THIS:
Feel my left-handed RAGE! Stupid smudging!
How are your Creepmas Krafts going?
