XOXO Sketchnotes, Part 1 of 2.
Hello my friends! It’s been over a month since XOXO fest… Here are the sketchnotes! I have plans to go back and watch the videos of the ones I missed in person and perhaps even taking a stream of the process. What do you think… Would you want to watch the sketchnote recording?
Always have something to go back to when you are so called out of ideas. Turn it into something else. I want to get a giant scroll of paper and paint a whole forest of 1000 individual trees like this.
Stained Glass Ghibli is my namesake fanart at its height. At the tippy tip of that point are Totoro, Mei, Satsuki, and Catbus. Too excited to wait to get home and take proper photographs, so here are the Instagrams serving as a preview, :)
Previously in this series: Sheeta, Laputa: Castle in the Sky
Back in business with painting at cafés (in peace today!) and trees. I should probably invest in a scanner… Any recommendations? Tweet me @bysusanlin, :)
I wrote about the 1000th Cut. You can read it on Medium.
The important parts –
No. I don’t need to draw less attention to myself. The people who do this need to start treating us not as numbers or objects, but as human beings.
Be empathetic when your sister, wife, girlfriend, or friend comes to you needing a venting session. Remember it’s not flattering, it’s harmful. Each isolated incident can be rationalized away. “It’s not that bad.” No, it is that bad. It’s bad with the 1000th cut – The one day she dropped her guard and relaxed, it happens again and stings with a bitter pain.
My dear boyfie got my this art book for my birthday last year. This is me finally putting it to good use with some watercolor studies, :D
Watercolor sessions from this past weekend.
