National Pig Day

It's National Pig Day. I had no idea. But here's a drawing of a smart pig reading from her library.

Morning Observation Sketch

Really trying to get back into drawing every day. So, this morning I decided to sketch what was in front of me, with any old pen, no matter how I thought it would turn out.





























And so, here is my cup of coffee and keyboard.

It was pretty fun. I like being loose when I sketch. My drawings are usually very tight, but I seem to enjoy exploring this other side as well. I could see slapping some color on the keyboard, irregularly and not accurate to the real keyboard. This is probably all a good exercise for me to step back a bit and not be so focused on minute details.

Anyway, cheers to a little drawing!

Year of the Pig

My friend's daughters are into their Chinese zodiacs. So, he wanted me to do a painting of them for their birthdays this year. This is the Year of the Pig one. The other will be Year of the Monkey. This was a super fun idea. I finally bought good water color paper and wow, what a difference that made. I'm super excited to start painting more soon!

Into the Stars

This was a painting I just did for my husband's co-worker who lost her baby nephew. His name was Nashton and he had crazy hair. On the back of the painting, I wrote the following quote from The Little Prince:

"For you, though, for you it will be different. When you look up at the sky at night, since I'll be living on one of them, since I'll be laughing on one of them, for you, it'll be as if all the stars are laughing."

Sesame Street characters

These were some of my favorites. I had a bunch of silly songs in my head while working on these!

Movember

Greg is leading up the Movember celebration at his company and is giving awards. He had a limited budget, which only got him one prize from the Art of Shaving store at the mall. So that award goes to Best Moustache.

For the other two...I did award drawings, so he at least has a certificate. :)

And so...The Creepiest Moustache and Wildest Moustache awards:

Burnese Mt. Dog Wants a Snowball

A friend posted that she wants a Burnese Mountain Dog. I am not sure if she's serious, but I decided to draw a quick picture of one for her, to aid in the persuasion of her husband to get one. They have 3 cats. That would be quite an addition to the animal family. And hair content of their dwelling.

Crone

Something a little different for a word story for the word "crone". There isn't a lot to be told here, except perhaps about this old bird's story.
