I've been working on my first graphic novel at a really breakneck pace (a chapter every two weeks!), but I'm trying to find the time to have fun and explore and learn! I want drawing to be something I enjoy doing again, instead of just a means to an end...

Started again...I mainly write but today I tried watercolour in the journal to see how it would turn out. No bleed through...!!!

(It’s Midori MD paper from a regular A5 slim size Traveler’s Notebook blank insert)

Maguro sent progress shots of the tri-colour silkscreen cover and bookbinding she is doing for BLT comic anthology :heart_fire: it looks so good!

Starting to color a page of my #comic for the first time.

There's a window in the back I NEED RIMLIGHT.

I documented the :blobwizard: cross structure binding "linked" :blobwizard: method I used for with a lot of WIP photo instructions

I learned this very recently so still lots of trial and error. You can definitely scale the project up/down for , sketchbook, leather notebook, etc. The versatility of the binding approach allows you to play around to your preference, as long as you understand the logic behind it.

This took all day but I was able to make 7 more 💪 Hope ppl enjoy the DIY scraggly wabisabi-ness ☺️

Simultaneously listened to podcasts docs about systemic racism, supreme court laws that protect cops, sad octopus mom, and more...
