I have the week off work because next week I start my new job at OpenTable. I decided to tackle a new technique: shadows. Shadows are complicated because they require a certain amount of depth in the image. I did find this rather hard - I haven't done anything like this in a very long time. I'm not sure this is the style for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed it.
This is a piece I'm working on for a client that we probably won't use, but I had so much fun that I decided to finish it anyway. When you have to choose between going to the Oscars or getting delivery in, it isn't hard to decide.
I read Marie Kondo's book, Spark Joy, years ago. And then I recently watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo on Netflix. She inspired me hugely both times. I even got my boyfriend on board with our closet tidy! It was a pleasure turning my respect for Marie into a drawing.
