Marked up

So all day today, I pretended that I wasn't going to color my drawings with markers. I made all kinds of excuses: I like the originals and I don't want to mess them up, the markers could be terrible, the new drawings are going to be even farther removed from the original line sketches. "Umm, what does any of this matter," my artist self seemed to say. Copy the originals so you don't "mess" them up. Who cares if they are "more removed"? We are just playing!!! So, before I allowed myself to wallow in Netflix, I had to color the sketches with markers. What is interesting is that they look much better in photo form than they do up close in person.
