I’ve been thinking about creating video clips or short videos about the subjects that matter to me. I made this one this morning:
From left to right, clockwise: angel with sneakers, automatic drawing, another automatic drawing, mermaid
Ok I used a Gif maker online but the drawing is all made by me with only a mousepad on Paint. Back to the 1990s guys!
I remember a time when we started to use computers at school but couldn’t surf the Web (this shows my age :p ).
So I liked to open Paint and draw with the mouse pad. It was very very hard.
Today I decided to try again in an impulse of nostalgia and love for the 90s.
So here’s my first mouse pad drawing of 2017.
I don’t know how I managed to delete one of my Youtube channels while trying to swap brand channel but anyway, starting from scratch, losing my 16 suscribers (LOL, yes I know) and beginning with only 2.
I thought it was time to grab my pencil and pen again and draw.
I’m quite happy with this Santa Klaus I doodled without using a blueprint.
I’m used to drawing slender young women and muscular men.
So drawing a fat elderly man was quite a challenge.
I haven’t read a novel in weeks (actually I’ve been reading the same book about laicity, and how to apply it in the French society, schools and workplaces without offending religious people – very interesting).
I haven’t drawn anything in a few days and I need practising again or my ability will remain unimproved.
Work is going fine. But I can’t figure myself starting work early in the morning yet, so I need my medically required part-time to be carried forward for at least six more months.
Regarding my mental health, it’s fine. I haven’t really been depressed or anxious in quite a long time, except when thinking about people who seem to have let me down, but c’est la vie.
There’s been quite a lot of anxiety in my life these days. I can’t tell exactly why. Strangely (and fortunately), it is not about work; on the contrary, I’m glad to have something to do in the afternoon other than spending my time in front of a computer.
On a positive side, I have continued to doodle for my personal satisfaction and welfare.
