When I returned to the studio from my trip I was feeling a bit burnt-out and confused about the Global Talent Search outcome. I knew I just needed to give myself a few days to dust myself off and get back into the swing and I am happy to say I am back in the world again!
I continue to work towards the last few pages and finishing touches on the Gracie Brave project:
In the evenings when my energy shifts but I still need to work I have been listening to The Jealous Curator podcast and doing fluid, loose gouache and colored pencil florals and seed pod studies in my sketchbook. Not sure where this will lead but might try some larger versions and offer them for sale in my website shop. Stay posted... and be well.
