Hair! My first Illustration Friday entry. Illustration Friday is an online artist community where anyone can enter and share their work. There is a weekly theme and the responses regularly tally in the hundreds, perhaps thousands. There is a current week’s topic (announced every Friday). Artists then make an illustration based on the current topic. […]

Last night I went to a grants funding workshop. They pounded home one thing over and over: the artist must have a consistent body of work.

Another in the continuing circus cat series. This one is done in watercolor and ink. The cat itself, was inspired by a photo of a cat who is, sadly, in the local animal shelter. Adopt. Don’t buy. There are so many beautiful animals seeking homes.

Fall is here. The weather is gorgeous and it is a great time to get outside with the dogs. Below is a quick pen and watercolor sketch of a jack russell terrier.

It’s a late start to #inktober this year. I did a bit of playing with vectorizing the image, which lets me play with the line quality on the computer! It’s also the only time that I’ve used Adobe Illustrator and not wanted to slap the computer.

The idea of a tiny Victorian Christmas village can be either totally charming – a bit unsettling,depending on the scale of the viewer.

Jury duty involves quite a bit of sitting around in absolutely boring rooms. Not so good for scanning images, but great for sitting and inking. Also pretty good for learning American dialects. It was a drug abuse trial. Hours spent hearing ‘payinn’ and ‘peeill’. Translation: ‘pain’ and ‘pill’. This is the second day of twitter’s #illo_advent […]
