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!
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!!!
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 🙂 For now, enjoy this week’s drawings!
Here are the drawings from week 2 🙂 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 🙂 The other three are just random weirdness. Enjoy!
