Since the end of the summer, I've been watching ads through various promotional networks in return for a few bucks a day - slow days net me 2 or 3, but on good days I can easily pull in closer to 10. No, I'll never earn enough of this passive income to retire, now would I want to, but it's always nice to have a little extra cash on the side. Guilt free cash, where I can just buy things impulsively and not think "man, I should probably invest this money or put it in a 401K or some responsible adult thing."
And so the bulk of my purchases have been pretty pointless and silly - random books that I want to read but realistically will never make the time to read, various videogames for collecting sake that I don't even own a system to play, overpriced imported books of gaming art, etc.
But this time, I actually bought some art supplies. No more sketches with my trademark $0.15 bic pens. Now I've upgraded to the world of Sakura Pigma Microns. And I use all three names because actually I don't know which of the three brand names you're supposed to call these things. But they are great.
Just a dumb little tree face. I used 3 different thicknesses for this dealio. Took me about 3 minutes, but I had a lot of fun drawing the leaves.
