art every day month #8: the book-o-meter
Today went in all directions except the one I had planned! I did manage to pull this poster out of my ass at the last minute, though - I sketched & inked it over the weekend and then went balls out on the color this morning. It was another piece where time was in short supply, as this one is for our school's upcoming book fair. Hence just a peep of it, and the strategic placing of pencils to block out all personal details. But you get the idea. And the deal is a sweet one. If we reach the book sales goal, the principal is going to hop on a harley and take a spin around the school for the kids. And she's not normally a Harley spinning kind of gal, but she's game for the challenge. Wearing a helmet, of course. We are hanging the posters around the school and will mark off each tome on the book-o-meter as sales rise to meet the goal.
Now if only someone could hold a fundraiser for my ailing car! I took it in today for an oil change and came home with a loaner and a bill for the precise amount of the book fair goal. Oil leak, antifreeze leak, gaskets blown, timing belt shot, a surcharge for having that look on my face that I had no idea what they were talking about (guaranteed an extra thousand), and a two day stay in the car hotel. Sucks. Oh, well, onward. See you tomorrow for List it Tuesday!
