Another Flying Monkey


 This flying monkey sketch ended up having really fun energy, so I thought I'd share it also.

Bee's Chair

Bee is pretty jazzed about her sweet, freshly-painted chair.

Flying Monkey

 

I needed to draw some flying monkeys a couple weeks ago for an 826MSP Field Trip. I like how this little fella turned out.

Grumpy

 

I'm not feeling grumpy, but this kid sure is. Hope you are having an un-grumpy Saturday!

Dogs of the Future

 

Here is a sketch that I started on tracing paper and transferred to the inside of a card that I'm going to send to a friend (I still plan to add some color with either colored pencils or watercolors). She lives in an apartment now and wants to start out with a Pug or a Frenchie, and someday wants to have a Newfie or a Great Pyrenees when she's in a house. These future dogs are so lucky because she is a real sweetheart and she's going to give them a great home someday!

Weenie gnome and monarch


 Happy Friday! This little character is part of a series of new art I've been working on. Tiny little gnome weenie dogs! I did this sketch in Photoshop and still like to use blue, like when I sketch on paper with my col-erase pencils of my animation days.


Have a great weekend!

Girl with a Bow

"Wait for me you guys!!" (it isn't easy running fast with her favorite big bow)

Happy International Happiness Day!

 

Today is the International Day of Happiness and French Language Day. This blackbird is called a merle in fran├žais and I see and hear them singing their little hearts out every day. It’s sweet and a touch sad but beautiful. Happiness comes in many forms, most of them small and scattered.

Spring Day Sidewalk Artists

'Cats are such show-offs,' thought the Dog. 'But she IS a good artist.'

SING TO YOUR PETS DAY


 (Okay, it's a made up holiday, but it really should be an official one.)

Feb Girl

                                            She prefers being quiet and listening.

Fun creating sketches with brushes I've not used before, or a combination of brushes new to me.

 I can't believe it's been sooooo long since I've posted here! This is one of a few baby sketches I recently did in my sketchbook. 

 

I hope everyone is happy and well! Have a great weekend!
