Tiger Time!

Working on my tiger while hanging out with my tiger. So nice of her to leave me a bit of room on the edge of my chair. With that face though, she gets whatever she wants. Damn cats! Excuse the messy desk. I’m a bit cramped in my lil’ studio but I’m happy to have one regardless. I am having fun drawing the tiger. I honestly didn’t know what to do with it in the beginning but it’s starting to come together.

FSM Update: Tiger Teaser

Tiger Totem BW

Hey All! I’m getting back on track with my totem animal drawings. I started the sketch to a new one today. I will be taking a break from my “Megtography” so I can start focusing on my artwork more. It is quite a challenge posting a photo a day, especially an interesting photo a day! Kudos to all the photographers out there that can keep up with it! For me though, my artwork is more important so I need to get back in the flow with my drawings! To spice it up, I am working on the mighty tiger. I have a huge adoration for big felines and tigers are one of the most striking!

Check back soon to see the completed piece and learn about tiger symbolism. Thanks for stopping by!

Until next time,

Drawing of a Colorful Cat

 

CODC

It has been a month since I have posted a drawing. I don’t like taking long breaks but I always know it’s coming when summer hits. There is so much going on that it is hard to keep up with. I have soooooooo many photos to go through from all the activities and travels from July and August. Not to mention the list of totem animals I have accumulated that I need to complete and research. When I go so long without getting any drawings done I start to get itchy.

I decided to keep it light and simple. I drew a picture of my son’s cat, Chloe, in different contrasting colors. It was something fun and whimsical to warm me back up. I wanted to play around with colored pencils and flamboyant colors. I’ve created other pieces like this in the past and would like to keep up with it as something I can always come back to when I need a break from my totem drawings. They are fun to create and allow me to be a little funky with my approach. What do you think?

 

Thanks for stopping by! Check back often for daily photography and updates on my current totem animal project.

Until next time,

Snake

This guy slithered out of the garden we were weeding today. He was not happy to be caught as he knotted up and tried to bite. We quickly let him go about his day.

The crickets were huge today! We found a ton of them. When I was little, we would catch them in the garden and feed them to our geckos. Yummy!
