Summer painting

So with the summer off, I resolved to finish painting in the illustrations from this story.  This project feels like it’s been going on forever, and I am ready to finish it and send it away from me where it will magically be published by a group of wonderful people who feel like paying me for an unsolicited semi autobiographical comic-y children’s story about anxiety.  Or I at least am ready to start officially writing it.

As it turns out finishing the painting might have been overly ambitious, as there are always distractions in life (like sunny days or trying to not be the lamest friend always), and it turns out I don’t have the longest attention span and seek distractions after about 4 hours of painting.  I also don’t know what is a normal amount of time to spend painting something like this, but it seems to be quite the slow process.  I want to say I’m a perfectionist, but there are just a lot of little details that take a really really long time to do.  And it takes me a long time to pick any colours that aren’t blue.Anyways, when I put everything together in a pile of finished paintings, I feel much better about things.  So that is what I am going to do.  I will try to keep them in order.  Also, I just got an iphone and am very excited about it, so the image quality may decrease and feature retro filters and scratchy framing effects.
