    I would like to knit myself a pair of socks. It's a project that's been on the back burner for a bit, but I really need a knitting project to get in to before I lose it again. I have the yarn I need and all the needles, just gotta get it done. I'll have to see how I want to make them. You can knit two pairs of socks at once and I think that's something I would like to do, hopefully to make them more uniform, but we'll see. I'll have to look up a few techniques and I'll certainly watch several videos on knitting socks as that's generally the easiest for me. Here is the pattern for those interested: Love Socks.

    I also have the goal to write more, but less ambiguously, I'd like to write at least one short story. I'll likely do some other writing I need to do for another project, but that's a bit on the back burner for now. Fingers crossed about this one. I've just been having a hard time writing.

    That's so radical! Wow, it totally went over my head how it might be implemented into other creative communities! It can be a lot of fun to remake, remix, and just plain try out new things. I'd like to see more art memes like this too! I think a lot of art memes are starting to become more focused in experimenting and trying new things, on top of drawing things you love. But how frequent these things pop up is a roll of the dice, because they're memes.

    Hey guys! Recently within the art community (though it is in its dying throes), there was an artist meme making the rounds. Referred to as hashtag: artstyleblend or artstylebendchallenge, this meme had artists asking followers what the most prominent features of their art were. With that, they would try to draw the exact opposite. This resulted in both hilarious and beautiful works, as well as being an exercise to flex your art muscles and push yourself outside of what you're comfortable with.

    With that lengthy introduction out of the way, here is my own result! I drew this at the beginning of September. I have not nearly enough followers/engagement online to get answers, so I asked some friends what they thought of my style and did my best to do the opposite. I personally REALLY enjoyed this art meme. The first character is my "usual" style and the character on the right is my style "bend" (PS I just realized I put "artstyleblendchallenge", using blend instead of blend on the work itself; guess I need an editor lol).

    I tried to be actively aware of techniques and styling I normally use and tried to discard those. I normally solidly outline everything, including hair, so I tried to focus more on shape and contrast, if that even make sense! I don't talk about my art process a whole lot, sorry folks!

    In an effort to shift the spotlight, I figured I'd share some of my favorite art style bends I've come across (be forewarned, these are twitter links as this is where the meme was the hottest):
    japhers
    luwiizuh
    vonnabeee
    You can explore the tags on most social media for your perusal.

    A small aside, this exercise was also interesting in seeing who all had an understanding on their art style and how they draw, and those who might not. Where's the cut off? Is it simply skill based? Is it about being comfortable with art?

    For those on tildes who are both familiar or unfamiliar with the art community, what do you think of this particular art meme? What about artist memes as a whole? If you are an artist, do you participate in any of these memes/challenges?

    I drew. Soooo much drawing lol. It felt good being able to pump out some drawings pretty quick (they were mostly freebs for people). I like being able to speed through art and get a finished product, even if it can be chaos lol.

    I also did some crocheting for a baby blanket and will hopefully be finishing that mother fucker up and handing it of to my SIL. I'm sick of it lmao.

    My SO and I have been playing Wasteland 3! It's pretty enjoyable, though we've ran into some bugs several times. Thankfully, none have been gma breaking, though a lot of them seem to be UI based. I personally love that you can customize your person in terms of looks! I made my first chick fuggin huge and jacked and she towers over everyone in the game and I love it.

    I'm very much enjoying the naming conventions and humor Wasteland has. Though there is a truck ton of reading and listening and getting anywhere can take a bit, there's a lot of funny stuff. I'm enjoying the world and my SO has filled me in on some of the deets as this is the first Wasteland game I've played and he's played the other two. I'm less inclined to play the previous ones as 3 is more my speed.

    This, this, this! My whole childhood was clean your plate, or if want more eat or here have seconds and like it sucks to unlearn and to have to teach yourself as an adult how to listen to your body. And I see some of my siblings taking that approach with their own kids and it's like... Yikes but I'm not in the position to say anything, especially because I don't have kids myself.

    October, the most drawingest time of the year! I'll be starting an October draw challenge today. I'll be trying to do a drawing every 2-3 days, and spending that time on each drawing. Idk how to feel about it this year, I'm nervous because I'm bad at drawing scenes and scenery and imma try my best but uuuuuh it'll probably be hella ugly. I completed Inktober last year and was like huh so now what? It was very... Underwhelming I guess? But fun? So now I'm focusing on trying new things and also having fun. We'll see if I cry this time.

    I told my friend I'd sooner perish than watch this debate, yet here I am. It's a cluster fuck. As has been said, turn off Trump's mic. He's a belligerent child. Also, yo, climate change? I don't know if I hope they talk about it or maybe I don't actually want them to talk about it. My soul ain't ready for that or for the current talk about race.
