This week I've been trying to learn how to ink with brushes. The results have been questionable, but I still thought I would share. To get to the finished product though I started with a little draft. So what if it's on the outside of an insurance bill. Paper is paper. After that I… Continue reading Brushes
This week we've been putting the brush to the grindstone or however that saying goes. The tiny person has taken an intense interest in painting and I have taken an intense interest in not upsetting her. As such I wanted this activity to be mutually beneficial so under each of her paintings is one of… Continue reading Painting a day
While doing my best to enjoy the holiday weekend I completely missed my posting day. That's no good. It's also no good that I've spent a large amount of my time on non-art projects so I don't have much to show this week. Earlier this week the little girl and I made this together. A… Continue reading Inbetween
School has started! I am tired! And the only cure is chocolate. So I guess you could say I am a "lazy" baker. There are times where I bake from scratch but honestly I have never found a brownie recipe that I like- so I resort to brownie box mix. On the back of the… Continue reading Bad Brownie
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?
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?
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
