This one's pretty boring, but it was actually a brain bender! I have a hard time drawing things from memory, and I had to picture the "weaving process," the whole over-under business and make sure I didn't screw it up. I was able to detect a pattern fairly quickly - one inch long boxes with a space, stacked half the distance up or down - but I tried not to use them...it's cheating.
I have no idea what the thing on the right is...

I realize this drawing makes no sense, but I got new pastels and had to try them out. I also realize that is not an explanation as to why the drawing doesn't make sense. The title is from the song Twilight Time by the Platters, and is part of the reason it doesn't make sense. Figure out what it is yet?

I've been doing a lot of the black lately, so I thought I'd change it up a little. After staring at the page for twenty minutes I decided to draw a swing set, and just moved on from there, adding the color at the end. It reminds me of Spring, so I looked up songs that reference Spring, and found this lovely gem from Bette Midler for the title, haha.

"Gone With The Wind" went on sale in video stores across the U.S. for the first time on March 9, 1985. I saw an image similar to this a few weeks ago while browsing for pictures, and put it my "keep in mind" bank. This looks nothing like the image, so expect to see something closer to it in the future, ha. I came up with the title by looking at the On This Day in History website, looking for something appropriate, or not.

Almost every day I feel like there is no way I will be able to think of something to draw. I'm at least to the point where I don't spend all day thinking about it, but pretty much from 6:00PM on, I'm thinking about what to draw. In a moment of weakness I chose my roommates unfinished game of Sudoku. He pointed out after i posted that I didn't even accurately capture his lever of completeness - I missed a whole row that he'd filled in. I attribute this to my methodology. I spent an excessive amount of time "eyeballing" the frame of the game. I marked one boarder, then stared really hard across from it to get the spot "exactly" straight across, so I could draw the lines. For a brief moment I thought my eyes were permanently crossed. The title's not exactly accurate either, as he was not interrupted, unless you consider stopping an interruption.
