Ahhh…Just got excited that I get to pour my thoughts here once again. The first time I did a full length worksheet for our workshop with Ayala Museum last year, I fell in love with the process of creating worksheets. I would tell my hubby & my friends that I feel within me that building a worksheet booklet might probably be a fun idea. To this day, the Digitizing Workshop now has 14 pages in worksheets while the Watercolor Doodles has 12. Hahaha. I find myself adding a sheet or two every session. Okay. That’s still pretty short at 26 in total but still, for someone who feared creating worksheets, that’s already long. Haha.
Speaking of fear, I always have fears & doubts before starting any project to a point that it has become pretty standard. I’m so happy that I can now recognize its arrival. Okay. I still get fragile, confused and overwhelmed project after project but Seth Godin’s Talk about the Lizard Brain, some help from the Creative Pep Talk Podcast & even just a 3 minute session with Headspace every single day has helped I guess. *I hope!*
I’m writing this at 11:40pm. My body wants me to sleep but my mind tells me that if I don’t actually post this tonight, my brain (and especially my emotionssss) will have time to critique my plan so here goes!
I’m posting the How to Draw a Bunny handouts for you guys to download. 🙂
Why? Well, I don’t really know if I’m supposed to bluntly state my objectives but it’s in my heart & it’s about to burst (…and Simon Sinek said that you should Start with Why) 😀
1) I imagine parents, kids, aunts & uncles, siblings and kids at heart bonding over this worksheet.
2) We do get to go around for workshops. Grateful to have gone to Cebu, Iloilo & CDO this year and more places in the Philippines soon but I just feel there’s a lot more I could reach if I put this here on the internet. I will not be able to get to all the 7,107 islands nor all the countries around the world in my lifetime. I hope this tiny tiny token is something I can leave when I permanently leave the earth (?) *Gahhh…This girl. So dramatic. Her hormones are writing on her behalf.*
3) I hope this becomes a tiny tool to make you believe that YOU can draw. ANYONE can draw if they just sat down, practiced & believed they can draw. (The same way I can’t cook because I haven’t really invested time in cooking. Hihi.)
4) Yes, I do fear the day that this becomes a tool for a nightmare like my sister would share with me on deviant art where a publisher / school / workshop group in a random country replicates the files and turns it into something else but I’m still banking on the 99% chance that someone will be polite enough to write us an e-mail via ponggo(at)googlygooeys(dot)com should any of these materials be used for profit just like a publisher from Brazil e-mailed us years ago for our Googly comic jpegs. Also, if you own a blog, kindly redirect them to this page instead of uploading the files on your page. 🙂
5) Hoping, hoping, hoping that I can work on more worksheets after this. Oh wait. Right. I just made new worksheets for our workshop with Summit Books at the Philippine Readers & Writers Festival! So, if you want to get your hands on freshly printed worksheets, join us on August 27 from 1-2:30pm for a free Cartoon Figure Drawing Workshop in Raffles Hotel in Makati.
Spilled my thoughts spontaneously via my keyboard.
Here are the bunnies!
