I notice that whenever I complain to somebody about losing something, as soon as the knowledge hits the air... the item resurfaces.

So....

My black colored pencil has gone walkabout.  I am at my wit's end.  I have pictures to color in, and I don't want to buy a new set of colored pencils just for the black one.  Or buy an expensive single pencil from the art supplies store.

Work with me here, universe.  Please?

Who's at Barnes and Noble?  This writer!

(The book is supposedly elsewhere, too.  No Amazon unfortunately... they only accept it after so many sales.  Who cares?)

Graduate school started, and while I only have three classes and one free day of the week, I am assisting two different professors with very different research projects.

I don't know how this will necessarily affect my drawing.  I'm sure as hell going to be quite busy, but I also draw as a way to relax and de-stress.  So we'll see, especially since I have a few ambitious drawings planned... seeing an honest-to-God Caravaggio painting at the Cleveland Museum of Art really inspired me.  I admit it-- I cried just to see it.

Sad Puff by AuraMajesty
Sad Puff
"His head was bent in sorrow/green scales fell like rain..."
I love "Puff the Magic Dragon," and for some reason decided to draw sad Puff after Jackie Paper left Honalee instead of their halcyon days.  What does that say about me, I wonder?

Polly Ann Henry by AuraMajesty
Polly Ann Henry
Recently I was listening to my Johnny Cash tape, which included "The Ballad of John Henry," and I was inspired to do a portrait of John's wife, Polly Ann.  Cash's version touches on it, but other renditions of the song (like Doc Watson) more explicitly mention her "driving steel like a man" whenever John was sick, and after he died.  Other versions (cough Disney cough cough) leave that out entirely.

But I thought Polly needed a little love, and the drawing resulted.  I had to use a photo of a man with a hammer as a reference, but I think I did a pretty good job adapting it.

I'm a student, and hopeful writer, but that doesn't limit my creativity to just writing. In fact, things get quite ugly if I don't draw for a week or two....

Yep.  It's inked, and just wants coloring.
