Oops… I totally thought I posted this. I haven’t been posting much since Rose City, which is kind of insane because I’ve been very productive. I’ve just been wrestling with some stuff that’s a lot bigger than I am. My apologies.
Speaking of, while I was at that show, a woman asked me to draw one of her characters — a stocky Asian with a sasumata and Kabuki face paint. That’s all the information she gave me to work with. It wasn’t until she came by to pick up the drawing that I found out this is her new Dungeons & Dragons character. Somehow I think that makes it so much cooler. That’s a very personal relationship — a player and their character.
I know I’ve been absent, especially on the last few installments of Free Art Friday, but I just had to post this week’s! This is really the only time I’ve had any idea who found the drawing.
I released the drawing in a movie theater and not long afterwards the person who found it sat down two rows ahead of me and seemed to be discussing it with her friends. Felt kinda cool. I was giddy before the movie even started!
As for the drawing — it’s starting to get cold here in Portland. Time to drag out the big winter coats and beanies and ear muffs and scarfs and gallons of hot tea.
I know I said I’d post this before I hid it in the world, but I’ve suddenly got a lot of work to prepare in a short amount of time, and I just kind of forgot. I did manage to get out and drop it off in the world on Friday though.
This week’s drawing was another warrior girl. I realized I’ve been drawing a lot of girls with weapons, so I might have to mix it up for next week’s offering. That’s still a few days off, however, so we’ll see — I can’t seem to plan that far ahead these days.
Last week a friend clued me into this thing called “Free Art Friday.” The basic premise is that artists all over the place will take a piece of their work out into the world and leave it for someone to find. Viola! Free art. On Fridays. I decided to take part; it sounds like it could be a lot of fun.
This is my inaugural drawing for Free Art Friday. I left it in a cafe after I had breakfast with a friend. I can’t help but wonder what happened to it.
I’ll be posting the future drawings before I go hide them, so check back to see what goodies I’ll be unleashing.
