A few administrative items right off the bat.
- I’ve been very sick for the past week so if my post seemed a little grumpy yesterday – I apologize. I don’t mind May the 4th that much, but I am beginning to get a little tired of it as it does not seem to really correlate with true Star Wars dates. That said, I do try to celebrate it and find it cute that I have a lot of friends text me.
- I will be traveling internationally next week (Croatia!) and some of the following week and won’t be blogging. BUT never fear! I wrote a lovely guest blog for The RebeLibrarian which should be going up next week. I will try to reblog it here when I return.
Now, onto Fan Art Friday which I do with Mei-Mei every month. Except months I forget, lol! (I’ve gotten better because I now put it in my calendar with a reminder, good job Kiri).
I want to apologize to Mei-Mei because I found this picture to be incredibly boring. I saw it while flipping through after I had re-watched Rogue One and thought it was appropriate. But it very repetitive and I had to force creativity on it which was fun, I suppose, but still not fun enough. Most of the time I like the mendalas because you’re not constrained by how things should look, but this month’s was a bore.
All that aside, when I Forced (omg I just capitalized Force out of habit but it’s too funny so I’m keeping it like that) my creativity into this picture and did a bunch of different colors, I found it to be more fun.
I kept the Death Star and TIE Fighters industrial grays, the X-wings are red (for obvious reasons), but then I switched up all the other colors. There was really no rhyme or reason to the green, orange/yellow, and blue. I just kind of went with what I thought would be fun. I added pink and mahogany to the little circles but did not find that to be a good choice. The circles are positioned too close to the red X-wings so it clashes a bit.
Can’t wait for next month’s as this one was a huge yawn. Don’t forget to check out how Mei-Mei interpreted hers!
