I am so busy. I can hardly believe I'm already into my 4th week of student teaching (WHAT) and it's been an incredible ride so far. My first grade class is just wonderful and my cooperating teacher is so helpful and kind. She's definitely giving me all of the help I need.
Anyway, I finished making Greg from Over the Garden Wall about a week ago and I haven't had a chance to take pictures. If you have not watched OTGW yet, please do. It's a really short series on Cartoon Network, and it's so unique and different. I have plenty of notes and WIP pics of Greg, enough to make a pattern for him, but I feel like he needs a Wirt to go along with him... When I'll get the time and energy to go about making Wirt is another story! I just feel like they need to be a set. Like Ash ad Pikachu. Frodo and Sam. Tom and Jerry. Peanut butter and jelly.
Also, do you ever still get comments on deviations from like...2009? And you see a comment that says, "Wow, this is pretty good," or, "Not bad, I like how you drew ____," and you go take look at the drawing, and inside you're like, "OH GOSH, I drew that six years ago, I didn't know what I was doing, pretty sure I drew that in geometry class, how did you find that? Please look away!"
It makes me happy knowing that there are people who find some of my old works and like them. But please. Don't look. Which leads me to a question: what do you do with the things you have posted from years ago that you are no longer proud of? Do you take the time to clean through your submissions? Delete old, ugly works? Dump them in your scraps folder? Or just leave them be, as past relics of the proof of how much you have grown? Let me know in the comments!
Hope you're having a great week!
