Mid June 2017 Art Update

I’ve been busy making art! Not only is my 100 Random Practice Babe art book/100 somethings challenge nearing the end, I’ve also done some commissions as well. First up: some illustrations I’ve done for a coworker. She wanted some ‘toon’ likenesses of models for her upcoming book covers.       I also completed a…

Knight Sister–Girl Number 83

Knight Sister is the latest illustration for my art book that I’ve uploaded online, but I’m not showing every single image I’ve done since the last entry–I’m actually up to 86 images now. How I put the Knight Sister together This one was kind of a process. Still getting used to drawing on my Chromebook…

Latest Art–See the Derpy Angel!

The number of illustrations has gone up: 82 of 100, the “Derpy Angel”. I named her that because my son is always calling silly expressions ‘derpy’ so it popped in my head. I’m getting close to the finish line here. Thanks to my Facebook friends, I have a fresh amount of inspiration and ideas, so…

It’s a pricey but high quality sketchbook whose claim to fame is the bleedproof paper, resistant to pretty much any media. I’ve been trying to find paper that made me enjoy drawing with pencil again, having…

February Update

Making a choice

I finished another girl drawing today. I’m actually kind of proud of it. But I am resisting sharing it (in its entirety anyway). It’s not amazingly innovative or anything, but I need to teach myself a new habit. I’m up to 36 images. Most of those who follow me online have seen most of them…

Progress Report

The state of the girl book is as follows: I just finished a new one; I call her Thorny Rose. As of this writing, I have 35 illustrations. I am seriously considering getting to a nice round number (say, 36 or 48 or another nice-sounding less-than-100 number) and putting out a lesser version of the…
