I spaced out on posting yesterday’s inktober on here… I was the closing shift at work and just felt rushed and unmotivated for inktober once I got home, so, it’s a bit uninspired and lazy, but I drew something.
As for today… well, I just didn’t know what to draw, and this is what came out… it too feels a bit lazy…
Decided to draw something everyday holiday themed up till Christmas. Day one is Red Cup. So here’s the return of Barista Bandit…
Used watercolor and pen. Barista Bandit will return… here’s the original Barista Bandit
I got lot’s to do today. Day job work sentence, babysitting puppies time, and cleaning house duties; you know… lots and lots of fun (ugh). Now, don’t get me wrong… puppy sitting is mostly fun, but still lots of shit. So, I thought if I was ever going to post something today and not three years hence; I best be doing it now.
Day 2. September 2nd 2016:
So, I made a coffee run this morning, cause, duh, coffee and mornings go best together. And it’s a rainy type of day, fall has certainly arrived early this year up in the Colorado Rockies. But, to the point… I drew what I might have looked like to the raindrops falling on my head as I bustled down the rain strewn brick streets of a somewhat bustling city with a coffee cup clutched in my hand.
It was a good exercise in perspective anyways, plus, I totally used the new Copic colors I got! New art supplies are just such a squeeeeeeeee good feeling thing.
Dare I say: “See you tomorrow!” EEEEK!!!! I might just make a habit of this.
So, I decided to do that thing I’ve seen lots of on the old YouTube… The THREE MARKER CHALLENGE!
I promise that I drew the picture first, and the markers I picked were thrown into a bag and chosen with my eyes closed. If you can’t believe that, then, okay, but it’s the truth. The picture I drew is not complex, but I thought it’d be good with whatever I might pick as colors, plus I LOVE coffee and drawing coffee cups, so this was a win win for me. Bit cheaty I suppose since it is such a simple piece, but there’s nothing wrong with simplicity.
Let’s all be honest, I totally lucked out with the colors, what a BEAUTIFUL color scheme! They are all pretty and they all work together and YAAASSSSSS! The colors I chose are…
I’m now going to want to use these three colors in everything! I also want to do more random color choosing, I love the idea of discovering some more (hopefully) beautiful color combos.
Got up at 5:45, to work by 7…
I did sneak a cheeky piece of ice cream cake for breakfast before I left the house… you know, can’t just let it stay in the freezer…
Happy belated Mother’s Day to the mother’s out there, hope you celebrated with nice time spent with your moms and such. My mom was actually in town, so I was able to spend it with her. A mother of a Migraine was in town too, sadly, and so my head was not supporting me in a joyous day. I had a post planned to get up but I couldn’t quite manage to function well enough to get it done and post it… sad day.
But, as for this Monday, howdy hey world. It hasn’t been bad, but all I really want is coffee, coffee, and more coffee.
My heads still a bit blah, so nothing exciting today, just some coffee cups…
I used the stuff in my May Sketchbox… woo hoo.
Didn’t have to get going early this morning so I made myself a little something something… some Turkish Coffee, which, if you’ve ever had it, you know is way better then regular coffee. The sludge in the bottom of my tiny cup is like a welcomed friend.
Turkish coffee is a must try if you are a fan of the bean… it’s aromatic and thick. Unlike most brew types, its unfiltered and the grounds are allowed to settle to the bottom of the cup. It’s brewed over a flame (or on the stove top) in a little copper pot and served in a dainty little cup.
Sitting down to enjoy a cup of Turkish coffee is a fancy feeling moment, and it should be done once every so often by one and all. One sip and it comes in with a punch and a bit of sweet, and holds your hand as you make your first steps into the day. It might be my favorite way to consume a coffee bean.
