I don’t know how it is with other people who both write things and draw things, but I find that my writing goes better when I have time to draw–and I don’t mean, either, the focused kind of I’m on a deadline and have to draw fifty spandex-clad superheroes by Monday drawing, but the more leisurely, Hey this class–or meeting–or what-have-you–is kind of boring and I’m going to doodle my characters in the margins of the notes I’m supposed to be taking kind of drawing. In that way, the writing and the drawing balance and fuel each other, like one of those kinetic batteries that charges when you shake it.
Not a lot of time for that lately (although Aine did get to wear some cool plate mail in a scene because of doodles of plate-mail Aine), but here’s a picture from a year ago that I polished up and refurbished–like an old cabinet with a new coat of paint! 😀 If you like it, you can get it as a print on Redbubble. (See what I did there? Subtle, right?)
