Hello internet! Confession: I haven't been working on a lot of art recently. I have been feverishly working on finishing my master's project (AND I FINISHED IT! YESSSS!), preparing mentally for the start of another school year, and throwing a rad Robot Moana Birthday party. Anyways, Eric asked me to draw some zentangles for him… Continue reading Art Progress?
This week I managed to go from zero to completed on another paper cut. This is a zentangle design done by my lovely wife. I'm eagerly awaiting her finishing another more complicated design for me to etch out. Oddly enough, though I did put in a lot of time into this, and I didn't have… Continue reading Xen Tangle
Another week by but this time I have a completed cut, and as mentioned in the previous entry it's subject matter is atypical of my usual paper cuts. Since the shapes were a lot more representational than usual this one took a little more planning. Also, since the person that was doing the planning didn't… Continue reading The trees have little knobby things they take forever and you can barely see them.
Happy Monday to all! Eric and I have been gone all weekend arriving home this afternoon. We. Are. Tired. Baby girl decided to be an awful sleeper this weekend. At least she makes up for it by being cute, right? Today's challenge was: quick draw- portrait style. We began by completing a basic drawing exercise-… Continue reading Melee Monday: Quick Draw- Portrait Style
Baby don't hurt me, don’t hurt me, no more. Great, now I will have that song in my head for the whole weekend. Don't forget to vote on last week's Melee Monday/Face Off/whatever you want to call it post. Whoever gets the most votes gets ice cream. I NEED THAT ICE CREAM. Currently we are… Continue reading What is love?
The past few days have not left a lot of time for drawing, but I did manage to put the final cuts into my latest positive/negative space piece. This is actually the back I am yet to decide if it needs to be inked black. Either way the last two steps are faster and easier… Continue reading A quick update
It's MONDAY (almost not anymore) and you know what that means. It's time for a... FACE/OFF.GIF. I mean Melee Monday. This week the topic is clickbait topical yet again because everyone's favorite fantasy soap opera is back, Game of Thrones! More accurately it was for each of us to draw our favorite character from said… Continue reading Let it go
This week has flown rolled by! I finally finished Iris's cozy coupe, drew some stuff, started another wedding present and received quite a wonderful early birthday gift! Those of you who haven't gotten anything for me yet, don't worry. There is still time. Check out my early present! Isn't she pretty?!? And she came with… Continue reading On a roll
I have a pretty terrible memory. Names, birthdays, directions, they are all just plastic bags in my mental breeze. Unrelated to this I hate drawing pictures of existing fictional works. It's all 'fanart' and I don't want to just leach off of other people's love for existing properties. However, it turns out that strangers on… Continue reading Memory vs Real Life
Whut up! Eric and I took last week off to visit Lake Michigan, so we sorry for our internet absence. We wanted to post but we were quite busy making sure our toddler didn't fall down any stairs/fall face first into Lake Michigan. Both happened at least once... and fortunately we were around and paying… Continue reading Melee Monday: Jo vs. Eric
