IF ~ MUSIC EDM #17 musical instrument

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.
This is just my pencil sketch

Whattcha think?

EDM #15

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.

Every Day Matters

Challenge #79 was to draw your ear or someone elses. Here is mine :-)

I had to have my dh take a picture of my ear for me so that I can draw it. This is pretty close to what the picture actually looked like.

Music on the Lawn

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...

Quick Draw

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.

New Journal

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?
