I would love to write songs. Yeah, another goal/thing/hobby/whatever. It's not something I usually tell people. My favorite songwriters are storytellers: Bob Dylan, John Fogerty, and Neil Peart. I have this fantasy that I meet Pink and we converse and she asks me to write songs with her, which the leads to a meet and greet with Billy Corgan and we write songs too. :D
Below is a poem I wrote a long time ago and it's the closest piece I have to a song. The best compliment I received regarding this poem was that it was "lyrical."
I'm planning to write and illustrate a few children's picture books. I've been practicing with watercolor. I love the look of watercolor illustrations. I'm self taught and am still learning.
Here are two of three of the illustrations I made for my poem, Pink Bubble Gum. I'm just figuring our how to optimize my scanner. The first two illustrations I sketched, inked where applicable, and used watercolor. The scanner didn't pick up all the color, even on picture mode at 300 dpi. I decided to use plain sketch paper instead of watercolor paper. I sketched and inked and then scanned. I colored in a program on a tablet that is not Procreate. I thought I had this one but I don't. I have an inexpensive Wacom tablet and software that came with it that I'm still learning how to use.
I'm actually pretty excited about making stories this way. :D
