Spring is Being a Tees!

Warm weather is on it’s way! We made it folks. We survived another Winter! Although, I don’t know about everyone else but this was one of the most mild Winters we have had in a long time. We had maybe two good snowstorms but other than that just rain and wind. Now it’s already gettingContinue reading “Spring is Being a Tees!”

It’s a Digital Age!

I’ve been throwing around the idea of trying my hand at some digital art. I’ve never really dabbled with it much more than when I was in high school. That was fifteen years ago so a lot has changed in the technological department.Hard as it is to believe, I had never drawn on a deviceContinue reading “It’s a Digital Age!”

Inktober 2017 #2

I did it! I completed the entire month, no slip ups. I have 31 sketches completed for the month of October and what a challenge it was! Some days I couldn’t start my sketch until late at night and I would end up falling asleep while sketching! I got it done though. I am veryContinue reading “Inktober 2017 #2”

Inktober 2017 #1 

I’ve been obsessed with “IT” since the new movie came out. The original was always one of my favorites so I was ecstatic when I heard they were doing a remake. It was fantastic! I bought the book and started reading it yesterday. Wow…just wow. It just keeps getting creepier!  I’m excited to finally beginContinue reading “Inktober 2017 #1 “

Giraffes & Waffles?

Time keeps on tickin’, tickin’, tickin’ into the future! It sure is flying by and I can’t seem to find the time to get everything done! I started a new job doing landscaping so I’ve been spending a lot of time in the sunshine! …..I wasn’t able to draw much this week but I didContinue reading “Giraffes & Waffles?”

Tanglepedia

I was able to take a trip to the art shop yesterday and picked up a little sketch book and a pen cloth to keep my zentangles supplies in.  In my newest bible, The Joy of Zentangle, there is a lot of tangles to learn. The authors of the book suggest to have a keyContinue reading “Tanglepedia”

Every Now and Zen

I am having so much fun with zentangle inspired artwork! I want to do it all the time now. I have no worries when I’m sketching…no expectations…no strife! This is a fantastic style to play around with. I have been studying official tangles online and incorporating them in my sketchbook. I can only find aboutContinue reading “Every Now and Zen”

Inktober Challenge

As some of you may know I have an obsession with instagram! I check my account daily and surf the photos on there of other artists and friends. I had noticed that many of the artists I follow were posting ink drawings with a related hashtag, Inktober. I became curious…What does Inktober mean? I found out InktoberContinue reading “Inktober Challenge”

Scribbles & Scores

It’s amazing to see how a few scribbles and scratches on paper can create an image. I’ve been using a pen lately to prevent erasing. All my lines are permanent so therefore I don’t have the option of a second attempt to get a line perfect. I’ve been practicing many different pen and ink techniquesContinue reading “Scribbles & Scores”

Childish Chalk Talk

“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” -Pablo Picasso I came across a video of an artist, Ruth Oosterman, painting a picture using her toddler’s doodle as her layout. You can check out the video at the bottom of this post. I thought it was a reallyContinue reading “Childish Chalk Talk”
