I had so much fun today vending and live painting with my friends at Local Color at a 4/20 event this afternoon. I sold a couple shirts and a USA print while I painted pot leaves and on this 2 ft x 4 ft panel. It was inspired from the pot leaves I used to doodle in class when I was in high school.
Today I got a covid test and it was much more pleasant than the last time I got in June. I made some minor tweaks to my heart-eyes logo and uploaded it to Instagram for Valentine’s Day. Several friends said I should make it into a shirt and I just might. I also finished the “Scents by Drea” label design for my friend. I’m still working on a logo design for another friend which I’m almost done with.
Here are the three designs my friend liked from the 10 sketches I sent. They’re slightly cleaned up and with a bit of color. I’ve sent her these samples now I’m waiting on feedback before moving forward.
I ripped off the cellophane wrapper, slapped on one my stickers and started sketching in my new sketchbook tonight. It's some sort of decomposing skull with plants growing out of it.
Today I started writing messages on the protesters signs and went for a hike at Alum Rock Park, up to Eagle Rock. Can you see where I fucked up on one of the signs? Also check out the pics of the mutant bug (tarantula hawk) and a plant from outer space.
I was at Home Depot today and made an impulse buy. I picked up a couple small plants that would fit my two empty pots at home. The pots used to belong to my aloe plant, Plantie, that I watered to death a few months ago. I wonder how long I can keep these two alive.
Rot. In. Pot.
Today my little aloe vera plant finally bit the big one. This morning I saw that the last leaf I was trying to revive was half rotted away. The plant was a gift from my friend Amanda. She gave it to me in August and apparently I've been overwatering it since then. I sketched the bone plant drawing after the first leaves fell off in February and digitally inked it tonight to commemorate Planties short life and long drawn out death.
