Skylar's 5th BDay Invite!

Just finished these invitations for my daughter's upcoming "Little Mermaid" 5th birthday party. I'm conflicted emotionally as I very much look forward to doing these each year but the years keep coming at lightning speed. Hopefully, she and her brother won't mind me doing these invitations well into adulthood. :^)

Playing Catch Up!

It's been a while since my last post. So, I thought I'd drop a few pieces I've completed in the past few months and one I never posted for whatever reason. Anyhoo, the top two images are commission pieces I did for a family member and good friend. The bottom two are pieces I did for my son and daughter's birthday invites. :)

Pilot Action Girl!

New drawing! I heard someone talking about Amelia Earhart on the radio and this image popped in my head.

Snooty Guy and Tarnished Swamp Monster

Here are a couple new character designs. The Snooty Guy idea just popped in my head and the Swamp Monster was created after playing with the Character Design Shuffle app by Stephen Silver. It's a very, very cool app to get some challenging design ideas and put some parameters/limitations on your work.

Life Drawing: 2/11/14

Keeping at it, staying loose. I love how quickly one can find a feeling/emotion in a quick 30 second or 1 minute gesture drawing.

Life Drawing, OHHH how I've missed thee!!!

I'm back baby! It's been quite a while since I did some good, old fashioned life drawing. I have hereby decreed that I will focus on life drawing on a weekly basis. I should have never stopped in the first place. Staying loose and focused is essential to growing as an artist. And besides, this is my most beloved form of drawing and it is SOOOOO therapeutic.

I used the site: for these. Check it out if you want some really nice poses to work from. The built-in time limits are great! I plan to also get out and draw from real life and hopefully attend a live life drawing session or two. Feeling good!
