Magic Manifest

Launching Digital Adventures on Wednesday was a LOT of work, and I've been diving into physical mediums since to kind of balance everything out. I've been working on class content and think I'm spending too much time with my iPad, so yeah...paint on my fingers, please!

I'm trying to adjust to new medication that has me up half the night, so my drawings are coming through thin skin, nerves close to the surface, nearly exposed. No filter, just doodles as I use art to cope and use the time wisely (watching marathons of TV shows on Netflix feels like such a waste of time, if I'm to be awake until 5am!). You can see my notes scrawled in the corner of one of the pages. The other is a drawing done on thick paper, ready for paint, as soon as I settle on a color palette.

Spent the day filming March's journal spread for Creative Warriors, playing with new colors, experimenting with tools, palettes, and ideas. Nature, animals, totems, guides. What are we hiding behind and what do we wear outside? Tonight I am working with the imagery of a gazelle, though I would love to do more masks, or maybe simply focus on faces. 

How do you like the unicorn girl's 80's blazer with shoulder pads? Sometimes, you have to go with the mistakes and roll them into beauty instead of fighting with them.

Loosen up. Play. Add details. Tell stories with imagery instead of words. Dive into your own magic wardrobe and show me what your forest looks like. Who would I meet upon arriving? What does the landscape look like? How does magic manifest?
