886 So Serious.


Well, I fianlly got the pony set in the mail, and the person who is going to get it didn’t specify what sort of drawing they wanted, so I went with my original plan.  I must humbly admit that it’s pretty cute.  The box arrived in badly damaged condition, but the contents are fine.  When next I can get to the post office I’ll be sending it off.  Everyone else will have to wait for their sketchcards until I have time to make them.

The actual sketchcard I was going to use are missing.  Probably because they have been in my way for about 2 years.  So, now that I need them, they are gone.  It’s not like I don’t have a ton of paper around, but they were made for this specific task.  >:|  DICKS.

I have torn my area up looking for those damn things.  I hate it when I can’t find something I know I have.  It’s an obsesive trait I’ve had since I was little.  I will pursue an object to the detriment of all else once I set my mind on it.  If I can’t find it I will dwell on it for days.  Which is why I try to know where everything is.  I’ve always been pretty good at remembering how things are with a glance.  A talent that served me well in retail.  Even if it wasn’t where it was supposed to be I could recall seeing it in the wrong place.  I’m not as good at it anymore. 

In the time I’ve been sitting here thinking about the sketch cards I have emptied 3 drawers of stuff and put their contents on the floor.  Because that’s a wise use of my time…

I have a lot of empty sketchbooks around here, and partially filled ones.  Like many artists I had a bad habit of buying sketchbooks then drawing two or three things only to buy another one later.  I have since almost completely stopped drawing on paper, but the old sketchbooks remain.  At some point I’m going to give them away because I never liked the paper in common sketchbooks anyway.  I like very smooth paper.  The sketchbooks I use now are made of such paper, and I fill them before moving on to the next.  The easiest to get sketchbooks are always made with paper that sucks ink from pens, and leave messy lines.  I’m not down with that. 

Anyway, not important.  I’m gonna go look for those damn sketchcards some more…
