Cards, sketches, and new Nick White (for real this time… soon…)
Posted On April 9, 2023
Another week gone by… let’s see here, I started back to clarinet lessons and apparently I haven’t completely forgot everything, just 75%… but hey, maybe that means I’ve forgotten some of my bad habits too.
One can dream, right?
Well, last week I mentioned my scheme to make handmade business cards from gelli prints. So far I’ve drawn on two of the prints, one with characters from Noah’s Archipelago and the other with Ricky B:
And then chopped them:
Just 28 sheets more to go.
Speaking of drawings, well… I didn’t get a lot of Ricky B drawings done this week, aside from the cards, but I got a couple, and this is my favorite of them:
And the best Bono Mouse sketch of the week:
There was also a small bit of pseudo-life drawing (eg, from one of the photo sets on Line of Action):
And I popped into the local arts council gallery on Thursday and got chatting with one of the other members who was volunteering. Apparently there is life drawing in my town through them so I’ll have to keep an eye out for announcements.
In other “art” news, I buckled down and filmed the next episode of The Nick White Show last night.
Now to get it edited… hopefully tomorrow and Tuesday.
On to the garden.
First up, on Friday I scored big at Home Depot, getting 6 1g pots of hellebores on clearance for $3 each (usually $15 each):
All of them are vigorous and healthy, with loads of new shoots and flowers.
And let’s have a look at some other stuff from the garden:
