I mentioned a post ago that I now have my boyfriend’s drawing tablet. I have been wanting to use this tablet for weeks. In fact, I used to find any excuse to use the boyfriend’s laptop so that I can click/point/drag/right-click using the pen tablet. It annoyed him, I’m sure.
Little did he know that I had grand plans with this tablet. Plans that involved his dream of me drawing again, MY dream of drawing again, and paying tribute to all bloggers (crafty/fashiony/and everything in between) I read and follow.
(DISCLAIMER: I have not drawn anything remotely recognizable in around 5 years. So please be kind.)
Here is my first attempt at illo-link:
Inside A Black Apple is Emily’s blog. It’s full of crafty goodness, cat love, pastry recipes, and all things artsy. She sells prints of her paintings (among other things) and while I was making this illustration, I was having the following internal conversation:
Me: You’re crazy for doing an illustration link for a blogger who is obviously a gifted painter.
Me (again): Yeah. But that’s the way I roll.
Me (once more): What if she sees your drawing and thinks that you’re mediocre?
Me (no one else): Emily is nice.
Me (the cynical one): What if other people compare your blah drawing to the beautiful ones she has made?
Me (the happy one): That’s the way I roll, I said.
Well, this is the way I roll, apparently. Go check out Emily’s blog. If you’re not already a fan.
