This post has been trying my patience. I’ve been trying to get it up for almost a week now. The images have been giving me technical difficulties. I can’t get them to copy from here to there, or my usb key won’t read, or the scanner refuses to scan my spiral-bound sketchbook properly, or I fell asleep. Anywhodles, I finally just took a picture of them on my phone and sent them to myself. Then I popped into Photoshop to remove shadows and stuff so they don’t look like I took a photo of them with my phone – even though I’m telling you that. 😉 It’ll be our little secret. Don’t tell anyone. It’s just between us.
Sometimes I start drawing something (like a water bottle) and things start going awry. The bottom of the bottle turns into a woman with legs. One leg is shorter and skinnier than the other and becomes a gazelle leg. A tail is added… And weirdness results!
One more for today. Just a punny picture I drew. Wouldn’t it be scary if your heart REALLY attacked you? YIKES!
I’ve been at it again…
Hello! It’s been a long hiatus since I posted some drawings. I have a few that were ready last week, but clearly I was not 😉 Here are the two I had mustered in the last couple weeks, and an additional one for your viewing pleasure! You’re going to get your vitamin D, vitamin A, vitamin B and a smile!
This week I am showcasing a featured artist! As promised, this week I am featuring the work of the talented Mariangela Giuliane! Giulie is from Brazil!! A little quote from her: “Sometimes I’m a good girl… but most times I think I’m a mystery, even to myself.” Guilie draws and creates art with just about anything she can find: pens, pencils, even on the computer! A lot of her drawings have a fantasy feel to them, taking you away into an imaginary world. Here are some drawings by Giulie!
Be sure to visit her blog to see more of her work: http://mariangelagiuliane.blogspot.com
Last week I went to a used book fair and found this interesting little book. At first I thought it was a joke, but after closer examination, I found that “A dictionary of The Queen’s English” was written in all seriousness!!!
The first two sentences of the preface read: To outsiders it sounds strange, even uncultured. But what many North Carolinians do to the King’s English was done centuries ago by the Queen. There are many humerous definitions found in this little book. All should be read with a southern American accent, like the following:
- Blowed (for blown and blew) – The wind had blowed all night. The steady wind blowed the ship off course.
- Mought (for might) – I mought go fishing today.
- far (for fire) – The far was blazing like the dickens!
Two of my illustrations are from this funny little dictionary, one is a close copy of a picture from google, and the other two – are from the depths of my mind! Enjoy, and don’t forget to click to enlarge or see more detail 🙂
