Day 14 & 13 -- missed the 13th, oops...

Oh well. I have yet to succeed in doing any "write every day" or do anything every day thing, other than take my medications. Even that would be spotty if it wasn't that not taking them would leave me in sudden major pain.

I wrote an article on How to Draw Oak Bark at the request of my deviantART friend Peachfuzz, and introduced colored pen crosshatching with it. This is one of the article illos I'm not posting anywhere else till I hear back from DemandStudios, but here's the link to it. I should draw something else nice for today since this is really for yesterday's art. I wrote the article yesterday morning, edited it and drew the illos today.

Yesterday I went out to an SCA event in Missouri. I haven't been to a Society for Creative Anachronism event for years, ow, almost a decade. I loved it. But I also walked around too much from class to class and learned lots about doing scribe and illumination work, more than I expected to learn since I've been doing it on and off for over 25 years. I meant to draw the oak bark illustrations as soon as I got home, but I was wiped out by the time I made it in the door. My bad leg cramped badly, my back was out of it and my good knee was going out. So I answered a few LJ comments and then fell into bed, to do the art this morning.

Oh well. I probably never will manage a "do this every day" thing in my life, my time and deadlines are calendar measured, not day and hour. But I had so much fun I didn't mind losing a day. More art later on.
