"I see nothing but flowers and patterns"

ok here’s the last post for tonight’s sketchbook update
this is the current project I’m working on besides the Thranduil zine that I’m trying to prepare for art walk (aughh only like 3 weeks left to prepare T^T).
This is actually a really old concept that dates back to when I was a senior in high school when I was working on my concentration work for AP printmaking.
I’m not sure If I want them to bee really tiny people or just this huge honey world.
- Top row and second row are all rough drafts for a drawing. Trying to get the bee boy in the position I want with his pet bee. I might combine the first and second one so there’s someone calling down to him from an upper level of the hive.
- 3rd row: more sketches, the top right is the sketch that I based the rough drafts in row 1 and 2 on. I also want there to be blue bee and girl or maybe a whole blue bee people.
- 4th row: more sketches and the bee keeper
- Last row is concepts for this series I drew in one of my sketchbooks from early in senior year.
Page 1 has the honey thumbnails in the middle/bottom of two beekeepers being affectionate in a meadow while harvesting (the top left corner is the original thumbnail for this old piece, i might redo it in the future). I’m really upset cause I had better drawings of the beekeeper lovers in my hardbound moleskine from senior year. It was my favorite sketchbook and I had the greatest ideas in there but I cannot find it. I’ve searched my room multiple times and I don’t remember if I packed it when I moved back to my old house in fall 2011. I have a really bad feeling I actually lost it at school near the end of senior year. I really hope I’m wrong and I find it.
