Time for some aimless pondering about art supplies
So, I just spent a better part of the evening sorting out my digital brushes. Pleased with the results, I fiogured I might take a look at how many brushes I have in total. The number sent a chill down my spine - 63. Fuuuuuuck, that's alot. And i haven't even gotten around to renaming and reorganizing them all.
It's somewhat disturbing to think that I have hoarded together too many brushes.
It's still not as much as I had just deleted - 121
This doesn't apply only to digital brushes - I have been hoarding physical art supplies too (and digital software <_<). 21 brushes, 16 pencils (not counting my drawerfull of coloured ones!), 4 drawing blocks for a total of 130 pages and 4 watercolour sets for a total of 66 colours. In addition I also have 6 feathers and 16 floppies (!) and a pack of clay.
I'm not saying this to boast, I'm saying this because I look at all that stuff and I feel....sad? betrayed? I have no definition for this feeling. It's just this disappointment that I've been too lazy to actually go ahead and burn through all that stuff. I wanna draw, but I don't find the willpower to. What madness is this?
Also, I've never been an impulsive buyer, but when it comes to art supplies (even the stranger ones) I've always been all "GIMME GIMME GIMME!" which is disturbing. Never liked losing self-control.
Where I'm getting with this? I dunno, hence the "aimless pondering".
TL;DR for the lazy bastards - Anybody else feel like their art supplies are burying them?
and yes, I am painting on floppies. Await a thread soon
