Somewhat serendipitously, I ended up finishing my old art journal yesterday. So I'm starting the new year with a brand new fresh one. I actually started using it yesterday, but I'm counting it as the new year. Lately, I've been working on hand-lettering. I'm using one from Ranger Ink that I really like. Nice heavy pages.
The old one had thinner pages, and they warped a lot from all the paint. It took me four years to fill that one, but I'm trying to make art more of a habit, so hopefully the new one won't last that long.
Just playing around with plaid on this page.
And playing with color here. Then I decided to add a list of my favorite moments of 2015. I'll probably incorporate this list into a scrapbook somehow. My NYE plans involve finishing up my 2015 album and doing some yoga. Glamorous. I think I can do it. I just have November and December left.
Here's some lettering practice in the new journal. And a list. This journal will probably have lots of lists, just like the old one. I'm such a list nerd. Lyrics from Pretty Pimpin' by Kurt Vile. Listen to it. Seriously. It was my favorite song of the year. Most of those songs probably aren't from 2015. They're just the songs I listened to a lot this year.
Doodling while listening to music usually results in a journal full of song lyrics. Looks like it was Massive Attack, Chet Faker covering Blackstreet, and Father John Misty.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great New Year's Eve!
