I’m not quite sure where May went. I missed the end of the month by a few days. Here's my calendar page for May’s Calendar Challenge. This month, I just didn’t have the patience to cut out those little date squares and get them straight on the page. So I changed it up a bit.
I think this is the way I will do my calendar from now on. I loved being able to draw or doodle something for a day rather than write about it. Some days are just too boring to warrant a blurb. Besides, the doodles are much more fun.
I’ve kind of gotten past the dark, “I’m totally sad, and mad, and irritated” journaling this month. I’m getting near some closure with the whole work debacle. I just couldn’t dwell on it anymore. Which has been good. So I’ve been doodling a lot lately and enjoying it thoroughly.
And made some more new cards for the stash.
And on another art note…
A week or so ago, the Sketchbook Project came to Los Angeles. I sent my sketchbook to Brooklyn in January to join the rest of the 2012 sketchbooks. After all that work it was tough sending it in to be housed somewhere else. I looked forward to visiting the project when it arrived in town. Stef joined me on an outing into the Echo Park area of Los Angeles.
Throughout that day I had been getting emails from the project notifying me that my book had been checked out by various people. When I tried to locate it, we had to wait for a little while for it to be turned back in and reshelved.
Even though I already had saved it in photos, it was fun to see it in person again and take a couple shots of it on its US tour. Already signed up again this year.
