I’m one of those super productive procrastinators. At the moment, I have a load of laundry going, dinner is prepped, I’ve cleaned off my desk, unpacked the luggage meant for the canceled teepee camping, paid bills, and have polished off a satisfying meal consisting of an avocado-tomato-egg sandwich. I even almost started to bake bread from scratch.
In short, I’ve done everything except what I’m supposed to be doing: working on the illustrations for book #3. But look! I’ve taken a small sampling of my many, many watercolor sets and spent an unconscionable number of minutes arranging them for a photo and I’ve also been painting color charts because those are undeniably useful though admittedly not necessary.
The surest way for me to get motivated to take care of domestic duties and superfluous tasks is to dangle a work-related deadline in my direction. It doesn’t matter how much I enjoy the actual work for said deadline, I seem to find ways to avoid doing it until push comes to shove. Sigh.
Alright, enough procrastinating. I will be back on Friday with a lovely giveaway!
P.S. The photos show my favorite watercolors that I use the most these days:
Kuretake Gansai Tambi (I have the 18- and 36-color set — these may actually be my very very favorite)
P.P.S. The giveaway bundle winner is Audie, congrats!!
