Index Cards…Still at it!

I accidentally took a little break from Index Card A Day when I got sick for a few days and got off track.

I’m having fun catching up though.

Here’s my card for the prompt ‘inkwell.’

A drawing of an inkwell filled with green ink and a green and gold octopus tentacle.

A drawing of a green octopus with small yellow dots.

The pink text above reads ‘Sometimes she meditates. Sometimes she just kind of floats, which is kind of the same thing.’ There are 6 different coloured markers visible above the drawing.

I’ve been playing with my brand new paint pens and I’m finding it interesting how different media brings out different ideas and styles.

I have to reflect on this a bit more so I can figure out what I mean by that but I know it is akin to how I tell different stories when I handwrite something versus when I type it versus when I use voice dictation.

Different methods seem to pull my attention to different phrasing, different sentence structure, and even different stories.

The difference between using a black fine-tip marker and using a big paint pen seems to do the same for my art.
