Day 201

"It's Official". Art journal, ink

Remember back on Day 74, when I vowed to stop indulging in "Potato Chip News"? Well, that hasn't worked out so well, especially in the last couple of days. Last week I had an awful cold which this week developed into a sinus infection (or something) that has had me feeling tired and listless, so I have been lying around binging on Twitter and Trump/RNC-related articles (and not feeling much like art-making). 

This evening, with the Republican Party officially naming "The Donald" as their "presidential" candidate, I decided to try drawing him, in a caricature kind of way. As I drew, my sketching pen (it's a fountain pen) started leaking big blobs of ink, so I smeared them around with my hand. That was just what the drawing needed, I think.
