[Editor’s note: #tbt posts feature stuff I made previous to 2019. They’re meant as art and craft inspiration, not FOMO that you can’t make things as quickly or as often as I do. Because there’s plenty of FOMO going around as it is.]
I don’t believe this sentiment every day. But I really did believe it when I made this ink and watercolor sketch in mid-2017. It probably helped that I was drinking coffee on a sunny morning at a bug-free Cape Henlopen campsite, with nothing to worry about except what I wanted to pack in my beach bag for the rest of the day.
At the time, I was trying* to learn hand-lettering. I used pencil and some Copic multiliner pens (brush tip and regular) before coloring in with a basic palette of pressed watercolors.
Note to self: Take more vacations.
