….electrolytes…

…prescribed “cures”…

…boosters…

…nope…

…(and somebody suggested I needed a Dooom cloud)….

…(can’t remember the context for any of these words but keep an eye on the ainjell)….

Sketchy 152

…by late December last year the detail was starting to leak back into my sketchbook…

…rather than just leaking out of my head….

Sketchy 150

….gosh…

…still catching up on December sketches from last year…

…looking at this stuff for the first time in awhile….

…didn’t realise how much the long covid fatigue thing had affected how I apply ink to paper…

….(getting better slowly as will be attested to by the next 10-15 pages of sketchbook)….

…(stay tuned)….

Almost Finished

….just in the test phase….

…just need to work on the colour….

…am experiencing intermittent motivation to post stuff so bare with me….

….long covid has me splitting my days into hourly sets of breathing exercises which, even though they are showing great results, leave me feeling like I’m getting nothing done!….

…which is crap ‘cos the pile of stuff I have to show you grows exponentially….

…I just need to re-set my schedule….

….more soon….

….promise….

Sketchy 143


…was sitting in front of my drawing board struggling to concentrate on painting because I was sure there was something else that I’d told myself that I needed to do before lunch…

….laundry….check….

….prepare and start crockpot….check….

….dishes….check…

…new long-covid busting breathing exercises at the correct time intervals…..check….

….scan pages of sket…..shit…..

….aaaand…..done….

…(thing at the bottom is a “mind-map”…alleged thought focuser that I toyed with because I assumed clarity of mind was something I’d lost to covid…..

…you start by putting something at the centre and jotting down your immediate thoughts and connecting with your other thoughts….

….er…you should probably google it as my explanation is of something I tried and dispensed with before Xmas!…..

…stay tuned for where that leads)….

Even Further Adding

….to my two previous offerings….

…just some skulls and bones…

…and some more…

…and some more…

…and some more…

…is that enough?…

…I’m not sure I should be the judge….

Further To My Previous Offering

..onto the next two…

…but first….

…remember this from way back in February last year?…

…it’s a colour guide for these….

…same pattern as last post…

…and yes…

…the colours on one piece mirror the colours on the other….

…oops…blurry….

…but you get the idea…

…right?…

…(please don’t make re-take the pic’s…it took for ages!!..and was exhausting)….

Stuff I Finished Last Year

…alternatively titled “Stuff I Spent All Of Last Year Making”….

…”but was too sick to finish, frame and photograph till now”

…the frames are 865mm x 620mm…

…they (all 10 of them) are in “matched” pairs…

…some of the photos aren’t great because – long-covid-brain….

…but hopefully they’ll give you the idea….

…now to build up enough steam to maybe organise an exhibition…

…(…er…with long-covid-brain….who am I kidding?!!?…might take me a long while….)…

…(but stay tuned just in case)….
