pens and (pain)ts
Here are some low quality iPod pictures of some low quality things I've painted recently. I dug out my watercolors over winter break and I've filled more pages in the past week than I have since I got this sketchbook last Christmas. I haven't been writing a ton lately, so it makes me feel good to know I'm still creating something, though I'm finding myself invariably drifting back to words. I'm also realizing that, in the traditional sense, I'm not much of an artist, and I'm okay with that. I don't like drawing as much as I thought I did, and it's generally a struggle, and I don't know if I'll even take art next year (maybe I'll do printmaking or something for lulz), but I like stuff like this, where I can just do whatever. It's very therapeutic, and writing with paint is fun.

We're just going to ignore South America, mmmmk?
The hand clearly got messed up but I like the bird so it can stay.
