Rethinking the blog design…

Those that know me are familiar with my inability to keep things the same. Whether it’s my name or my furniture, I get the urge (maybe compulsion would be a better choice in this situation) to do an overhaul and I don’t feel “right” until it’s complete (or I’m distracted for a while). I loveContinue reading “Rethinking the blog design…”

The Sketchbook Project 2012…

Has gone the way of The Fiction Project. This is Procrastinator 2: (Putting Off) Judgment Day. In this version, everyone (including Terminators) plops down on the sofa and nothing gets accomplished because they’re too busy watching American Dad and eating hummus with crackers. No one dies and Linda Hamilton doesn’t develop arms that could breakContinue reading “The Sketchbook Project 2012…”

Prepare for a long post…

I’m seriously, you guys. I’ve noticed how lax I’ve been in updating my blog. I’m not sure what the deal is, but I’m looking into remedying it. I write out a list of possible posts and then don’t get to them or, I see them, but don’t remember what I was going to say. IContinue reading “Prepare for a long post…”

Art with intention…

Does intent make it better or worse? While preparing dinner I got caught up in the intention of preparing dinner. Suddenly I was acutely aware that I was holding a knife that was slicing through a vegetable that was going to be eaten for dinner. I was completely aware of that action – I wasn’tContinue reading “Art with intention…”

Slacka! Part Deux…

I am the World’s Biggest Slacker. Maybe slacker isn’t the right word…procrastinator. Laggard. It has been quite some time since I blogged and I’m behind on everything else as well. The Sketchbook Project? Soooo behind. Adding more items to Etsy? Soooo behind. Drawing, period? Yep…behind. I had hoped that I would at least scrawl outContinue reading “Slacka! Part Deux…”

Dead foot…

I took a series of photos a few months ago (probably longer than a few, I suck at time) of feet. When I was in junior high I went through this foot-drawing phase. I just drew feet on everything and I have no idea why. My English teacher (who wasnt a bit fond of me)Continue reading “Dead foot…”

Illustration Friday: Highlight

I immediately thought of text being highlighted (this specific writing). I suppose that’s not too bad, except this is supposed to be an illustration of some kind. So I stuck with my text idea, but also tried to scratch out (badly) an illustrated hand. My hand, to be clear – that is how I actuallyContinue reading “Illustration Friday: Highlight”

If you were a fairy….

Where would you live? In November a friend, Rick, asked me to paint a picture for his little girl. He digs my style and wanted a picture made that incorporated Tinker Bell. His daughter is MAD for Tinker Bell. Not only was I flattered that he asked me to do this, but I was alsoContinue reading “If you were a fairy….”
