What have you done NOW?



Princess Chrysanthemum and friends

I’ve been doing my best to set time aside to do some drawings each week. Sometimes I sit there, pen in hand, and totally zone out. Other times, it seems like my mind is raring to go and you never know what’s going to happen. This week, two of my drawings are things that I saw and had to grab my sketchbook to draw right then and there. The third is something fun I drew on a white board for a co-worker that asked me to draw a “cute and fuzzy animal.” If you know me at all, I think you know what to expect… ENJOY!

Plant stand silhouette
I was sitting on my couch one day as the light disappeared from the sky. The room was almost completely dark (just light enough to draw!) and I captured the silhouette of my plants on their stand in the dusk light {CLICK TO ENLARGE}

Meet Princess Chrysanthemum! I drew her for my co-worker who requested a ‘cute and fuzzy’ animal. Ask and ye shall receive! Isn’t she cute?! {CLICK TO ENLARGE}

Getting back on the art cart

I’ve taken a significant vacation from my sketchbook. I haven’t been doodling, drawing, or even painting. Before Christmas, I did some artworks for friends as presents (being talented comes in handy when budgeting for presents!).

Before I get to the drawings, I’ll get to the reason I decided to post today. I need to get myself back on the art cart! I’ve fallen off the wagon. I need inspiration. I need to start doodling again. I always carry my sketchbook with me, I just have to remember to make time to open it and draw! A couple of fun projects are coming up soon that will, hopefully, get the creative juices flowing. I’m doing three paintings for some friends of mine to go in their little baby’s room. Also, I will be doing a mural on a 10′ x 10′ wall in someone’s bathroom – a sunset!

And now, onto the most recent stuff…

I posted one in my last 2010 drawings post – a drawing of my friend’s dog, Brutus:

I did three other drawings for Christmas presents. The next two are of my friend’s Cats – Kauzmo and Differential. They are super cute boys. I put these two photos in one frame, each separately matted.

Last, but not least, I did a 14″ x 17″ drawing of my friend’s two-year-old. It took quite a while to finish this one, but I was really happy with the result! When finished, I matted and framed this one and wrapped it up for the proud parents!

I see the art cart coming… I have my ticket! Time to get on and enjoy the ride!!!

Weekly drawings: *insert something witty*

Well, it looks like I need to brush up my skills, dust off the old brain – and come up with some more interesting things to draw. I often find that if I force myself to draw there are one of two outcomes. Either 1) I draw something unexpectedly amazing or 2) I draw a bunch of really useless stuff that has no heart or emotion in it whatsoever. I’m making some breakthroughs lately, which is good. But still working towards the unexpectedly amazing ๐Ÿ™‚ For now, enjoy this week’s drawings!

Lost dog - answers to banana
I was thinking about a lost dog poster I saw on a post and decided to switch it up a little ๐Ÿ™‚ I plan to upgrade this into a digital artwork
Funny lil angel
Awesome swoopy hair, angel wing (just one!), crazy eyes and a thumbs up!
crazy weird skull
I was just drawing some swooping lines and out came this skull. As I have a weird thing for teeth, I had to draw them in - a whole lot of them!
cool patterned tie and lab beakers
OK so I was doodling a tie and tried to come up with a neat design. It started off with fun lines and ended up with dripping blood. And then there are those weird lab beakers. See next drawing!
silent scientist
I was thinking this could be a cool name for a band. I'd like to upgrade this sketch to digital as well ๐Ÿ™‚

Weekly Drawings: SANDAR THE HORRIBLE! and MSG

Here are the drawings from week 2 ๐Ÿ™‚ Two of them are silly sketches I did of “c” for my friend Sandra. I mis-spelled her name wrong, and this is the result – CRAZY drawings ๐Ÿ™‚ The other three are just randomย weirdness. Enjoy!

Sandar the Horrible Take 1
Sandar the Horrible Take 1. Not sure about this one. Does he look horrible enough to you?
Sandar the Horrible Take 2
Sandar the Horrible Take 2. Reminds me a bit of Salad Fingers...
Skeleton Grave
Don't ask me, I just start drawing and this is what comes out..!
MSG soup
This is often what I eat with my lunch. It's chicken stock, but the third ingredient (after salt and sugar) is MSG!
Sticky Finger
I was thinking about tentacles and then drew some... I added the finger last ๐Ÿ™‚
