Totem Animal: Orca

I had so much fun creating this piece. I always have an idea in mind but as I draw I let the piece create itself. My original thought was to have each orca resemble each half of a yin yang symbol. They originally were going to be done in zentangle and one porpoise would beContinue reading “Totem Animal: Orca”

Inktober 2018 – Jolt

My first thought for “Jolt” was Frankenstein, an obvious choice. I wasn’t in the mood to draw another Frankenstein themed sketch though. I went with my second choice instead, Jaws. I didn’t realize it until I had already started but this incorporates fire and water, two of the hardest things for me to draw. ThisContinue reading “Inktober 2018 – Jolt”

#130 – The MEG…tooth – 7.22.18

My husband and I went to a Gem & Rock Show in Herkimer, NY! It was a lot of fun and I bought many new treasures for my collection. One of which being this megalodon tooth.

Turtle Tribute

My recent trip to the New England Aquarium in Boston, MA brought the stunning sea turtle to my attention. There I saw a green sea turtle and a loggerhead. Both were very beautiful, massive and left a lasting impression on me. My latest totem animal piece was inspired by them. At first, I wasn’t happyContinue reading “Turtle Tribute”

We had heard great admiration about the New England Aquarium from friends and family and knew it would be worth the drive. ItContinue reading “Travel to: New England Aquarium”

Mad for Manatees!

I have completed my latest Zentangle inspired totem animal, the manatee. I posted last week about their symbolism accompanied with the black and white drawing. I have finished adding the color and am satisfied with how the piece turned out overall. More specifically, I am happy with how the algae came out. It makes theContinue reading “Mad for Manatees!”
