Sketches 170714

I can’t develop my rolls of film until next Tuesday (7/18) because I don’t get paid until then, so I decided to post a few of the sketches I’ve done so far this past month. I’m not sure anyone remembers but one of my goals this year was to fill up my sketchbook. The sketchbook I’m currently using is from the Bee Paper Company and is 6″ x 4″  with 93 lb paper.

This is perfect because I was looking for something hand sized but with thicker paper. Eventually I want to get good enough to sketch original characters but so far I’ve been using references.

Life Diary: Episode 9 [Part 1]

Hopefully this will become a thing now but I want to make it a goal to include my film pictures in each of my life updates. My “Photo Diary” and “Life Update” series has been combined, so now both of those will be under “Life Diary” instead.

I originally was going to wait to post this until my rolls of film were developed but I thought “eh”. If I have a post idea, I should just post it! Maybe I’m not in the blogging slump I thought I was. So this is part 1 and part 2 will come most likely towards the end of next week. I might do one of these every month, divided into two different parts.

Top Picks

I realized I haven’t made a post about my favorite books and realized what a travesty that was, so decided to make one. Also, posts about books make me the happiest, so why not? Right? I tried to categorize my list but let’s be honest – I’m not the most diverse reader, haha.

So here is the list of books that I consider to be the “best” – at least out of the books I’ve read so far. These books aren’t in any particular order.
