Okay, the Sharpie Guitar is now done, I think. Some folks had requested detail pics, so here they are . . .
For those just tuning into the program, yes, this is my old $400 Fender guitar that I've had since college. The one seen in this video. I used three Sharpie markers (they didn't so much dry up as go wonky) and two evenings. First evening, I was roasting my butt by an open fire after writing a lovely and angsty scene on FOREVER. Second evening, I was watching one of the early Harry Potter movies, with commericals, and adding the horse.
I did it freehand, because I'm wild and crazy that way. Also because I believe that in a lot of creative aspects of our lives, we overthink things and can really just dive in.
Sometimes (and this is when I'm giving meaningful eyeballs at Several Members of the Viewing Audience here, of both the writing and drawing variety) you just need to trust yourself and GET STARTED.
That is all.
