Character Studies

Trying to get some characters out of my head. They never look like what I'm thinking.


Happy pie day!

Storytime Poster Creation - March 13, 2013

Storytime Poster - St. Patrick's Day Theme
Really happy with this one. Did research on symbols and fonts and created this without inspiration.

The pieces of my evening. I'm rather fond of my Rosie "rug." Unfortunately her Kong toy (upper right image) looks like something else dog related. 

p.s. It looks like I skipped some days, but actually my only noteworthy sketches from those days were for a secret commissioned piece. Will share if able once it is completed!

Quite pleased with my feathered friend of the day. Wonder what her story is….

Missed a couple days, but still wished Ted Geisel (a.k.a. Dr. Seuss) a belated happy birthday. Sorry, Mr. Geisel. I did not intend to make you look like a less-than-enthusiastic, celebratory, unkempt hobo.

Washing machine problems, which is a big issue when you rely on cloth diapers….

Sketching Day 28

February 28, 2013
Last day of February, planning our spring menu. Thought it could use some illustration. 

I think I'm going to keep sketching daily and see what happens. It is a good exercise for me at least.

Nothing really great from me. But I sketched and some days, that is accomplishment enough.

A little more than a sketch today. A storytime poster for my first March storytime. Created via Arnold Lobel inspiration.

Sketching Day 24

February 24, 2013
Two more recipe sketches. Loving the start of these.

Sketching Day 23

February 23, 2013
Have had an idea for a while to illustrate some favorite recipes. Did some sketching for it and am excited to see how I want to finish the final products.

A little lamb came to visit yesterday. I think it belongs to Mary. :)

Sketching Day 21

February 21, 2013
Today's sketching was really more of a finishing. Or restarting, if you will. It's a gift so only portions can be shown now. :)

Sketching Day 20

February 20, 2013
Didn't think I had anything in my head to sketch last night, and then the bugs slowly came. Followed by the creatures, inspired, of course, by Don Madden. I'd say it was a successful night of sketching.

Sketching Day 19

My book study yesterday was on being dressed like the flowers of the field. So, flowers it is.

Sketching Day 18

February 18, 2013
I bet it would be incredibly interesting to find out what certain letters are for to people. For example, what do you think of when you say "S is for…."

Sketching Day 17

February 17, 2013
Ah yes, the random things of a Sunday night.

Sketching Day 16

February 16 (sorta), 2013
Well, I technically missed a day finally; but I'm giving myself some grace and counting one I did early on Sunday instead.

Sketching Day 15

February 15, 2013
My puppy. And an imagined pug with my shoes. A good day of sketching I'd say.

A quiltish pattern.

Sketching Day 12

February 12, 2013  
Bought a new cookbook, so of course I had food on the brain. I really think this kind of sketching is where I excel.

A few odd characters.

Some more lettering. That last one is for you Dani. :)

Sketching Day 8

February 8, 2013
Although we don't have snow here, I've been thinking fondly about winter and my sketches went that way too. These are some of my favorites.

Also, I found this little gem in my sketchbook from a month or so ago and couldn't resist throwing it into the wintery mix page.
