Last week was our obon/summer vacation. Because of the current state of emergency and our company’s current restrictions, there wasn’t too much to do, except for stay home. During this time, I played two online games of D&D, did a couple of drawings, started writing a new story, and slept. I only went out to buy food.
But it wasn’t all bad. This summer has been a hot one since the rainy season ended. I’ve never tolerated the heat well, so staying under the AC has been just fine with me.
Today was an extremely tiring day, but instead of falling straight into bed, I decided to unwind a bit. I had meant to watch a video or two on YouTube, maybe listen to a few songs while eating dinner. However, I found myself in the mood to sketch, and ended up with this jelly fish for my trouble.
A while back I wrote about an art challenge that I issued to myself when Aichi first put the state of emergency into effect. That challenge was to produce one piece of art for every day I was home under the SoE. However, in that time I only completed five pieces before turning my attention elsewhere. I poted the first three in am earlier post and now am posting the final two.
Recently, Aichi Prefecture declared a state of emergency, which caused a closure of many businesses. Because of this, I have had more time to work on personal endeavors at home. So, I challenged myself to produce a piece of art each day.
As a theme, I decided on flowers. For medium, I pulled out a square Muji craft paper notebook, and oil markers. The paper holds the ink well and doesn’t bleed through.
