One of my assignments in Sketchbook Skool was to illustrate a recipe. I’m no cook, so I wanted to do hard-boiled eggs. My husband said that was a cop-out, and made me draw pumpkin pie. So here it is, the recipe off the side of the can of pumpkin:
If I were to do this over, I’d make the ingredients larger. I underestimated the amount of space I had to work with.
Happily, while I finished up coloring this, my husband actually made the pie. It was delicious.
So hi. You may have noticed a distinct lack of posts over the last, oh, four months or so. I’ve been terribly busy procrastinating, you see.
In short: I’m sick of writing book reviews. It stopped being fun ages ago. Unfortunately, it took me this long to work up the courage to do what I’ve wanted to do from the start: an art blog.
I’ve always liked drawing. When I was a child I wanted to be a cartoonist. I’ve pondered doing a webcomic for years, but it wasn’t until recently when I randomly started illustrating my Facebook statuses that a diary comic was born. Those will now also be posted here.
What else can you expect? First off, I’m ditching the Tuesday-Friday schedule. This blog is called Utter Randomonium, after all. We can’t be having too much structure around here. I will probably still post the occasional book review, but only when I have something to say. (Most of the time, I finish a book, go “huh, that was a book,” and move on.) I’m going to start a series of posts called RSS Love, where I share the blogs and webcomics I follow on Feedly. I’ll chat about art classes, outings, projects, and groups. And anything else that strikes my fancy.
So welcome, one and all, to the newly revived Utter Randomonium. Comments are open.
