Week 4 of Journal52 is 'Building Character.' The intent is to 'build a character' for your journal. Now, I don't love to draw faces. In school it was my least favorite thing to do. But when I did it then, I spent hours with photo references or live models. I had quasi success but I never felt comfortable. I am certainly not the type to sit a draw faces from their head. But this journal is about trying new things. So I said screw it and tried. She kind of looks like an alien, (Brandon said she reminded him of Avatar) a very sad alien... The page on the right has words that I want to embody in life and this journal in particular.
Even though I'm feeling slightly awkward about her, I'm going to be kind to myself and choose to love this.
PS Week 5 is finished and will be up very soon! Thank you so much for stopping by! If you are doing Journal52 please let me know in comments because I'd love to see!
