21 Day Challenge - Day 21 - YEAH!!!!

I made it to 21 days!! Yippee, woohoo!! Seriously I finished 21 sketches. Granted, I started in August, but through surgery and creative block and whatever else was in THAT I've made it! I was determined to finish with 21 sketches no matter how long it took! AND I did. I'm proud of myself... it has been a real challenge for me. A good one, too. Thanks to Deb for letting me know about it and for Gina Perry for starting it.

Should I start another?? Hmmmmm....

21 Day Challenge - Day 14

I'm posting a painting/collage instead of a sketch today. I bought a terrific book "Taking Flight" by Kelly Rae Roberts I love this book! The other part of the title: "Inspiration & Techniques to give your Creative Spirit Wings" says it all. My collage/painting was inspired from her techniques and work. She has wonderful examples and step-by-step of how she does things. She also has guest artists that she writes about and then creates her own work experimenting with the artist's style. Check out her website AND her blog. She writes with a wonderful voice and speaks from her heart. AND she is so honest. How awesome for an artist to share their ups and downs!

21 Day Challenge - Day 11

I"m Back!!!! I've been recuperating from surgery and out of action for a while. Now I'm back to continue my "21 Day Challenge". I did get some drawing done while healing, but wasn't up to scanning and posting. This little guy, Jake, is floating in the air.. not sure if I should have put some background in or if it works as a spot. I'm hoping to work on some of these and get some color involved. It's good to be back!

21 Day Challenge - Day 10

Meet Grandma Jane.. I think Grandpa(from Day 3) has an eye for her! I haven't drawn older people much. Good practice for me.

21 Day Challenge - Day 9

I was going to post this in IF, but I saw that someone else had an illo with the same kind of concept and hers is in color! Maybe I'll do something else to post in IF.

21 Day Challenge - Day 8

A boy and his dog. I'm starting to really LIKE drawing boys. I still want to get a little more action going, though.

21 Day Challenge - Day 7

Birthday girl... another girl. I am so DRAWN to drawing girls... hee hee! I will get back to the boys tomorrow.

21 Day Challenge - Day 6

I thought I would draw some boy faces. I always have such a hard time thinking of other hair styles for boys. Since my kids are grown I'm not around kids all of the time. I need to be on the lookout for different kinds of hair.

21 Day Challenge - Day 5

RATS! I missed a day--was in a workshop all day yesterday. This little guy is having fun with good old roller skating. Although, here in Texas it is sooooo hot.. don't see many kids outside playing during the day. It's 102 degrees today!

21 Day Challenge - Day 4

I just had to sneak a girl in, heehee. Running short on drawing time. Have to get ready for BREAKING DAWN!! Maybe I should have drawn Bella OR Bella as a little girl. Too bad Bella and Edward can't have kids! Yikes I'm talking about characters in a book!

Breaking Dawn!!

Tonight is the NIGHT!! "Breaking Dawn" hits the shelves. I will be attending the event tonight with Holly, Shelby, Britt, and friends. I just hope I'm not the OLDEST fan there. We've read Twilight, New Moon and Eclipse so we're ready for Breaking Dawn. What a phenomenon! It should be fun, fun,... if I can stay awake!

21 Day Challenge - Day 3

I'm not sure where Grandpa came from, but in addition to drawing more boys, I'm adding the challenge of drawing more men. I'm going to try in the next few days to get some more action going. Hmmmm.. maybe Grandpa dancing?

21 Day Challenge - Day 2

Ok, Day 2 and I drew another boy! Granted, his eyes are closed but it's a boy! He popped into my mind from a doodle... Ricky is his name and he's saying his prayers. He loves airplanes and playing outside. His dog, Skip, sits patiently with him. This challenge is going to be great for me.

21 Day Challenge - Day 1

I'm joining the 21 Day Challenge even THOUGH I am couple of months late! I was inspired by my friend Deb completing the challenge. Her challenge was inspired by Chickengirl's challenge. Also check out Gina Perry who began the challenge. I'll post a new sketch each day so check back to see my progress. I plan to draw more boys, as I tend to draw girls all the time. Also, I'd like to experiment with some digital sketching plus try my hand at some collage -digital and traditional. I figure this will be a great place to try things out!

One of my intentions this year is to post more frequently to this blog. I've had family things come up, but I'm trying to get back with it now! This illustration is my winter mailing. It did take a while to finish it and because of that I'm now working on some different ways of painting faster. Being from the Deep South, we frequently had marshmallow roasts outside with rather nippy weather... which might seem odd to some, but was very commonplace for me growing up.
I hope everyone had wonderful holidays, didn't eat too much, (but enjoyed yourself!) and have jumped into 2008.
