This challenge was to draw something you collect. I think everyone that knows me knows I collect MICE. The cute one's ya know! .. Well at 4am this morning I was awake unable to sleep and drew this lil guy. Ya know... I think he is my favorite one that I have drawn myself. :-)
I enjoy sketching for Illustration Friday (IF) as well as EveryDay Matters (EDM) and this weeks IF topic is MUSIC and it just so happens that there is an EDM challenge to draw a musical instrument #17, so I am combining this illustration for both clubs.
Here is another Every Day Matters entry. This is #15 Draw a tree. I had a lot of fun with the textured look of the tree's trunk. My squirrel is nice and plump for the winter season that is vastly approaching.
Well I finally finished it. My journal entry for my BRDC journal. I almost wish I could have just picked up my watercolor paint brush and painted this. Using color pencils took FOREVER. Why won't I just paint???????
Anyway, here is it... 'click on the picture for a larger view'
I was sitting at the library the other day and decided to see if I can do a complete drawing (sketch and color) in a very short time. A Quick Draw!! ya know
Well there was this young gal sitting across the way studying something and kept making this ' I have an idea' gesture and it tickled me silly. So I decided to try and sketch her. This is what I came up with and it only took me 23 minutes.
I am starting a new Art Journal and decided to design the cover. This journal will be for journaling about my discoveries through nature.
Here is the cover, let me know what you think.
It is a lime green leather cover. I used sharpie permanent marker. I am noticing that it is smearing a little so I am wondering if there is something I can use to seal it, or if maybe I should use the burner and burn it on. Whattcha think?
Here are some gnomes that I have worked on. I am not really thrilled with them but have worked on them for a long time so now they will be sent off to their new homes. I do hope that my partners enjoy them.
I joined a swap over at Swap-bot.com for handmade postcards with PINK as the theme. We were to design postcards with the majority of the color being pink. So I read my partners profiles and this is what I came up with.
My first partner was born in Chicago and loves the Chicago skyline and also has a passion for penguins....
My second partner likes birds, striped socks and trees......
I enjoyed designing these and hope that my partners like them as well.
Hope everyone is having an ART filled week.... Happy Creating!
This weekend is my sisters 40th b-day and we are all planning a surprise party for her in Fl. My oldest suggested we get a Grim Reaper for the door, well, they couldn't find one they liked so they asked me to paint one.
Here is what I came up with.
This Diva Princess says "Back off Grim Reaper, my life has just begun!!!"
I had a lot of fun creating this lil guys, I created the first two during the writing of a book I am working on for someone special. The third I did on a larger scale ... it resembles my 12 yr old son. He loves to sing although he won't admit it to anyone. heehee
