Perhaps this illustration works for this topic as these characters had to learn to adapt to their extreme circumstances. This is a gouache painting of my previous entry for the Illustration Friday topic, Tales and Legends. It never felt finished, and I wanted to try my hand at giving it a traditional painting treatment. This was done several months ago, as I haven't got my IF mojo working yet. Since my move to Ohio I've been busy getting settled, and learning to adapt to my new environment, so I thought it fitting to jump back into the IF routine with this topic. :)
Having just moved for the first time in 9 years
I thought I'd offer up a few moving tips that I learned:
- Keep all your original boxes with the styrofoam, especially for electronics. If you've got the room this really comes in handy!
- Save plastic bags of all sizes. A great way to protect your clothes and other items from moisture.
- Seal all glitter containers properly!!! I learned the hard way that it's true that 'glitter is the herpes of the craft world'
Overall, I'm so happy to have broken out of my old routine life. It was long overdue. Change isn't just good, it's freakin' incredible!!!! :)
