Hand-drawn Mandala work.

Still plugging along on the coloring books for adults. All of the images for the first book are finished and about 20 for the second book.

I’m back on the big studio tour this year, in November, and every once in a while I think, “How in the world am I ever going to pull myself away from drawing to make inventory for that show?” I’m trying not to think about it and push it to the back of my brain.

Above is a super zoom-in of a mandala I’m working on for book two in the series. I’m pretty proud at the neatness of my hand-drawing. I do wonder if it looks too precise though, to the point where people will doubt that I did it by hand. I used a fuzzy line pen so it doesn’t look too computer-generated.

I’ve been thinking about how to describe the current designs I’m working on. They’re not your typical flowery, soft-edge style that you see a lot of. More industrial? Masculine? Maybe I don’t need to describe them at all and just let you all check them out. I can’t wait to share them all. next month, y’all!

I’m missing color a little bit and have spent a lot of time sitting at my computer for the last month. I think I’ll go out to the new, and neglected, studio for a little bit and work with some media that doesn’t require a keyboard or a screen.
