Congrats on five years @shipwreckedcomedy, I’m so grateful for all the things you’ve made so far, and excited for everything you’re gonna make in the future.
PS: Shipwrecked are currently fundraising to make a holiday short and you can see donation info here if that’s the kind of thing you wanna see. (It is.)
Henrietta Swan Leavitt, a super cool astronomer I wrote about for AQUILA’s November issue: Science of Light.
I had Big Plans for sketching in Singapore. I wanted it to be like my Europe sketchbook (1, 2) but with a way higher pictures to days ratio, and in colour. I had visions of making a beautiful stop-motion video of sketches appearing on a desk, taking you all on a journey through my trip.
As it is I came back with a lot of sketchy scribbles and colour notes and photos and ideas, and things that mean a lot to me. There were a lot of lessons about materials (crayons melt in the heat) and sketching methods (as above: using memories instead of actual material can help me narrow down a picture to its key elements instead of overworking). And I learned some more about the sorts of things I want to make.
But I didn’t end up with a lot that I really want to share. So I’ll just leave you with this, and a link to my instagram for the two sketches I posted while away.
