Random drawing of the day.  Seems I've been extra inspired by comics lately.

A Friend's kiddo

A friend of mine from highschool days asked me to draw a cartoony version of her boy.  I've only met the kid once, but he seems a sweet kid with a knowing, unconcerned smile.  Not sure if I got the resemblance right on, but I think I got the personality.
Attempt #2 at drawing the same kiddo:

Brush pen playtime!

Recent experiments with my new favorite tool, the brush pen. 

This one's a self-portrait.  Couldn't decide what to draw, so I drew how I felt.  Always good therapy.

Monkey business...

My most recent zoo outing was spent mostly in the primate section, which I hadnt drawn in for quite a qhile.  Here's the results!
This guy (a Red-Handed Tamarin, look him up!) was doing a great stretch down his branch, proceeded by butt scratching on said branch.

 The gibbons are always lively and ready to pose.
The orangutans are always a special treat when they're around.  The female likes to come watch us draw her.

This chimp has a piece of orange in his mouth.


I have finally discovered the only tool that helps me come close to capturing the epicness of my Mr. Floofy Pants.  A.k.a. Andy.  It's my new brush pen, which I think I'm slowly getting addicted to.  Enjoy.

Another Buttercup re-design sketch.

Now this is what I like to do when I procrastinate.  This is how I'd re-design Buttercup.  That girl brings me such inspiration!

Life Drawings

Here are a few of my fav's of recent life drawing sessions.  I'm always exploring tools but I think pencils, red or graphite, will always be my comfort zone.

more zoo drawings

Please enjoy my most recent zoo drawings, up through the end of 2010.  Must...keep...practicing!!!

Monster Pillows for the twins!

And here is my latest monster pillows that I made for my twin niece and nephew, Roman and Giovanna.  I included my kitty in one pic for size reference.  The material is a fuzzy, soft textile of some kind (can't remember what) with felt facial features and basic yarn for hair.
