I was supposed to finish this drawing in early 2014 (read: I said I would — much more of a failed promise rather than a request). I’m only almost a year late. Finished in record time! 01182015
…but the year is almost over, so it’s okay. Maybe I’m getting a jump on 2015?! For the past few months I’ve tied myself up with artwork (creating, not literally). I’m not at my computer (thus, this might be short and stuffed with typos) so I only have one photo to post that is semi-clear. Continue reading “I’m still proscrastinating…”
I can’t remember how long it’s been since I put work in my Etsy shop, but I know it’s been a looooong time. It’s also been a long time since I updated this blog! At the moment, there are only 4 ACEOs in my Etsy shop. Halloween themed ones because, well, Halloween is awesome (as ifContinue reading “Etsy shop update…”
I actually started this drawing for I.F.’s theme “Robot”, but I missed the boat. I think it works for both themes. Freshly inked, here it is:
Scarlet dreams of scarlet seas she finds on the sidewalk during an episode. Satin protects her the way Satan couldn’t.
Sweet jayzus, it’s been a long time since my eyes graced the theme for Illustration Friday. This week the topic is “Eye Glasses”. I feel that this illustration needs a story, so I’m going to tell you one. When I was a little It, I developed a passionate madness for a gorgeous, gorgeous man lovedContinue reading “Illustration Friday: “Eye Glasses””
I’ve been ill and I’ve done nothing but lie around, reading Pet Sematary and popping lozenges. SO, I decided to use an older drawing/painting for Illustration Friday’s word, which is “Explore”. I thought this painting (A Head, 2012) was suitable!
I missed last week’s I.F. – the word was “Stretch”. This is what I made and wrote. Spindly with graceless steps, pointed toes, stretching limbs as far as possible, rushing to get off the street, hoping these sentient buildings (it’s in your head, dear) would stop with their imposing posture. Maybe the beginning of captureContinue reading “Stretching, stretch, stretching…”
A couple of weeks ago I did two drawing/painting type pictures that Jer insisted had a “Nagel-like quality to them” (Patrick Nagel…oh how I loved him). In addition to that, they are “pretty” and colorful and not typical of what I do. Still, I have to admit that I do like them, especially because they’reContinue reading “Not afraid of whimsy…”
I’ll be honest: this was not made for this week’s Illustration Friday theme, but I think it fits very well. The word is “Lost” and the painting (“Lost and Found”) matches. This painting (6 in. x 9 in. with 1 inch border) was made a couple of weeks ago using watercolors. As usual, it containsContinue reading “Illustration Friday: Lost”
