What Year Is It

I mean, what day is it?  Oh, well.  Time for popcorn and a favorite movie.  Staying Home is ok with this little guy and his buddies.

a little dog

I'm working on a fun project right now for a wonderful publisher. Here is a little dog that is in one of the books.

I hope everyone is doing their best to stay healthy and help others be safe as well.

Take care!

Something about these long bird legs

A black-winged stilt and a great egret walk into a bar... a sand bar that is.

Bun bun sketch

Sorry it's been a while since I've posted!

Here is a digital sketch of the same character I posted before. I feel like I clean it up a bit too much and it looses that looseness. Ah well.

Have a great weekend!

Angry Bun Bun

I love me a blue pencil. When I need to figure out a pose or the look of a character, I usually have my sketchbook open and start working it out in blue pencil. I then can get a feel for what I need to do when I draw digitally. Just scribbling it down even.

Have a great weekend!

Little bird

Because sometimes I just feel like drawing a little bird with a confident attitude.

Whitetail Deer

Here is a small doe. I'm trying to draw some wildlife to scale and it has been a fun exercise.

Little chick sketch- Joy

This is the third sketch I did trying to "find" a character for a story I'm currently working on. It's funny how you can spend so much time looking for one character, drawing over and over again. And other times you may find the direction you want within the first few scketches. Ain't drawing funny that way? hehee...

Have a great weekend!

January Girl

Reflecting on her life and what she wants to write, and always always starts at the back page.

Happy National Pharmacist Day!

Two of my oldest friends (since high school!) are pharmacists so I just had to do a quick sketch today. Here's to Judy and Betsy! And thanks to fellow sketchable Priscilla for telling me about all these national celebrations.

Owl Scowl

This Great Horned Owl ended up gloriously grumpy. I just love him to bits.
Wishing you a Happy (non-Grumpy) New Year xoxo

National Whipped Cream Day!

I heard on TV that today is the day we honor whipped cream so I found some fans. Who isn't a fan?!
