The woes of being an artist

You can guess what happened by the title. Yes, something very woeful.  Don’t worry, it ends on a good note.  I probably shouldn’t have done this, but I signed up for volunteering with toddlers.  Now, it’s not volunteering I shouldn’t have done, but what’s coming.

I went to training on Saturday the 4th.  And while I was there, I learned what would be expected of me while I was volunteering, since it was a training meeting, where they were filling me in on what was expected of me.

Anyway, guess what happened?  I was sitting there at a table, watching as people put down their email addresses so we could be contacted later by the person organizing it all.  Then, she handed out papers with our schedules on when to lead the kids to each class. She talked.  I looked at the donuts on the table.  I wasn’t hungry.  I got hungry just as a girl took the last sprinkled one.  I was forced to eat a cinnamon cake doughnut.  (It was still good)

Then, then, the last person filled out their email address. There was a pen.  There was paper.  There was a table.   I picked up that average pen, and turned over my paper.  And drew this.

I really like it, considering I wasn’t using a fancy ballpoint pen and only had regular copy paper.  I was attempting to mimic the pen and ink style of the DA artist MonoFlax.

Maybe I’ll try to get into this style more.  It seems very interesting.
