I’ve not seen the movie “It” but I was told that Lani does a good impression as she hopes for table scraps.

“Staying Connected” Cedar Park, 2019

Koa’s band traveled to Midland, Texas, to participate in a competition today and Mariko and I decided to purchase the live-streaming service so we could watch the performances and the awards ceremony.

It was pretty cool to have the all-day event on our TV (using Chromecast) so we could “keep in touch” with Koa. Midland is over five hours away by car which made going to watch in person a little out-of-reach for us so the live-stream service was nice, even though the quality wasn’t great.

Yay for technology!

A Third of the Way Through Inktober

“October 11, 2019 Sketch”

こんばんは。How’s it going?

Well, as for me, I’m very pleased (and a little surprised) that I’ve made it a third of the way through Inktober! I’m having a lot of fun doing it (but digital, not ink), and I just wish I had more time to spend on each drawing. I’m sure the act of drawing daily is beneficial to development although I’m not sure exactly how, since I haven’t given it too much thought. But one thing I’m certain is that Inktober simply forced me to break through the barrier I have of hesitating in just getting started on a sketch without worrying about the finished piece. And then I’m also not spending much time putting “finishing touches” on each drawing simply because of lack of time… I guess that’s a good thing to try something new – even just a new mindset or process.

So I guess I’m happy with my accomplishment so far… I just hope I can keep it going!

Here are couple more of my Inktober drawings, and you can see all of them on my sketching Instagram account, barron.sketches.

Isn’t it funny how cats love to lie down on our things? 😸
