Onto better things (art & design projects, clients, self) in 2018!

I’ve been in a much better mood this week than last. It’s the illustration, though the client is not actually new. I designed her yoga studio logo for a rebranding that started about this time last year. I’ve been meditating and doing my spiritual practice daily: 22min seated meditation, my approximately 4½min, personally designed pranayama and the LBRP. Not necessarily immediately after, I’m also doing daily … Continue reading Onto better things (art & design projects, clients, self) in 2018!

It e a good workout for today, but I only want one or two of these a week, I’m thinking. Too much heavy lifting & crossfit inspired moves make … Continue reading Full Body Goals #2 by Kristin R

Here’s a rare, NON “exercise-routine-detailing” post

It’s a new moon in Aquarius today, at 1:05pm PDX time. I’d been sitting here, wondering what I’ll do with myself today. I’ve been working in oils… I was actually happy with a sketch I worked on Tuesday. I’d done what was supposed to be a value-tones underpainting already, but then I changed the time of day from late morning to late afternoon. I never … Continue reading Here’s a rare, NON “exercise-routine-detailing” post
