Taking a break from my ongoing circus theme, just to ponder the last few days and what happened in this election. Days like this definitely make you think.

With a background color chosen for the #colour_collective challenge, using #moroccanblue, this is my third in the circus cat series. The cat is watercolor. I was asked on the previous cat painting how I got the fur strokes. Those are done with a rigger (or liner) brush. There’s a bit of ink around the eyes and the nice flat […]

Nope, Spike is not happy at all about being forced into a clown hat and then forced to pose. What a cat has to do for his dinner… This foray into circus cat painting began with watercolor, with acrylic paint used for the opaque background and highlights.

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.

Why so daily? Even on Friday! This is my first run at this year’s #inktober (a bit early. I’m excited).

When in doubt, doodle. This is what my day looks like when something at work has me stumped.

Well, it’s a day late (And a dollar short) – probably too much Relaxation Day (Aug 15).

Cats tend to assume that they are invisible, but if you look hard, you can still find them. This painting is in acrylics. I am intending to do some larger works on canvas and gouache just won’t work for that, so I am staring to learn to use acrylics. Transparency is the biggest issue. Gouache gives […]

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

Bringing things up to date, day 3 of the #illo_advent challenge.

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 […]

Another seasonal art challenge (advent illustrations), open to everyone:#illo_advent on Twitter. Have a look – lots of amazing illustrations. 2 days of jury duty gave me a late start, but I have joined here at last!
