I went camping last night. It was less than 24 hours, but I was by myself in the woods in a pretty quiet campground. Can't say that I am amazing at powering down, but I did take it down a few notches. I didn't get up to camp until about 6:30pm. That happened to be when the mosquitos were out so I just hunkered down in the hammock with a book and resigned myself to the forced lack of productivity. This was a good thing.
The next morning I woke up and after breakfast and a reapplication of bug spray, the mosquitos weren't so bad. So... I was a bit more productive.
Sketched up a Science Bunny for my sister. She teaches middle school science and we agreed that she needed a mascot.
Sketched my campsite and made the trees as colorful as I wanted them to be.
Re-evaluated my list system... more on that in a later post.
Drew an alphabet/font. It is pretty rough. I know how to turn the individual letters into vectors and get them tidied up and have consistent sizing. I have no idea how to turn it into something I type with yet though. A fun thing for me to learn!
Created a rough draft of the text for a picture book about train day at the park. Lots more work to do on it, but there are lots of rhymes (and near rhymes). You are going to love it!
Maybe next time I go camping I shouldn't get so much done?
Also this weekend, but not while camping: I worked on a heron tattoo design for my cousin. She wants a heron with a "you want a piece of me?" attitude. I'm working on this entirely on Procreate on my iPad mini. Not done yet...
