Transsssformation

Just a sketch for today’s post. Snakes and other reptiles have always fascinated me. The great anaconda is an earthly wonder! I marvel at their size. The snake in Native American teachings represents transformation. In “shedding your skin” you can tie up loose ends and create room for new beginnings. If a snake slithers acrossContinue reading “Transsssformation”

Free Spirit Flashback

I came across a bunch of old sketchbooks and school projects the other day. It’s really funny to look back and see the drawings you did as a kid and compare them through the years. I thought it would be neat to do a timeline of my work for my latest post. I wasn’t ableContinue reading “Free Spirit Flashback”

A Visual Universe

I have been diligent with keeping a sketchbook lately. I am usually terrible about it, inconsistent. I use to think there was a right and a wrong way to use a sketchbook and it discouraged me. I always make things harder on myself then they really have to be. Like there is a secret IContinue reading “A Visual Universe”

Do It in the Dark!

Yep…I did it in the dark. I drew in my sketchbook with no lights on and it was crazy! (get your mind out of the gutter, perverts :P) I have a magical sketchbook entitled “Drawing is Magic” by John Hendrix. It is kind of like a guide book for artists. I have been trying to rediscover myselfContinue reading “Do It in the Dark!”

I like the word exposed because I feel naked sometimes when I share things that are important to me. Don’t we all! This week’s exposure is going toContinue reading “Free Spirit Realm”

Krampus is Coming!

With his long snakey tongue and horns atop his skull. He is half goat, half man. He looks as a Satyr and walksContinue reading “Krampus is Coming!”

I’m A Little “Sketchy”

I don’t typically share my sketches or “practice” drawings but today I shall. I use to feel kind of naked if I showed people my practice work. It’s so raw and rough. I was almost embarrassed by it. I didnt want anyone to think I was a bad artist. I know, I know…it’s ridiculous! I am tryingContinue reading “I’m A Little “Sketchy””
