Old friend

Some of you might remember Art.
He's a couple of years old now, but I dragged him out for the purposes of giving him some color here courtesy of digital technology. Art has been a T-shirt, too, by the way, as well as stickers I put on my letters.
Someday Art's duck might become yellow. But not today.

Laughing Sal

This is just a sketch, folks. A messy, icky, pen and pencil, here-is-my-brain-in-motion kind of sketch.
It turned into something more finished, which will be yet further finished. After which, I'll post that, too. But you know how I love the voyeurism of other people's messy closets. So here's mine.

Logos, anyone?

I know, I know ... I'm boring you.
Been busy. Still busy. But I did a threesome of potential Karen logos. Like any of them? Note that a) You can click on them to make them a bit bigger and b) there's a lot of white space between them because of how the original computer file was made. Sorry 'bout that.

Alligators on the brain

I've been drawing alligators lately, in various forms, for various projects, for reasons I cannot quite identify. 'Cept they're fun.
This one I did for school. Crummy photo (the piece was too big to fit on my scanner), but you get the idea.
There's more work to be done on it yet, but I like where it's going.

And, as always, should you want a closer look you can click on the image. Though in this case you'll be clicking on a slightly out of focus image.

I was working on an assignment for school, and started doodling robots in pencil in my sketchbook.
Later, I was at a concert, and -- being someone who evidently needs constant visual stimulation -- I started going over the pencil with pen.
Then, despite the fact that the sketch is sort of falling off the page, and despite the fact that the point of view, perspective and composition are off, I could not resist finishing it off this morning with a little color.

Let this be a warning to you ...

The person who inherits the family photo albums controls ALL.
Isn't this just the best? Apologies to my brothers, who might or might not be pictured above.

Tut tut, it looks like ... fall?

You'd love me to tell you these came from the craft store, wouldn't you?
But that would be lying.
I found them during my recent dog-walk.
Yes, I know they're lovely.
And fall is lovely.
And late fall is lovely.
And even early winter is lovely.
The trouble is that the Eeyore in me looks at these lovely red leaves and says, "Yep, and then it's going to be January somethingorother, with gray snow and sub-zero temperatures. And it's going to be that way forEVER."
