Got home at 3am this morning. Daughter was up at 6am. HOORAY.
I silently brought my watercolors to the dining room table and began painting. The kid took the bait, sat down next to me, and began painting herself. It turned out to be a wonderful morning. Here’s the sketch I made:
Followed by this Sharpie sketch I just drew at work:
And I think we’re gonna have more of these quiet drawing moments coming up, because why not make a few more of these, a series I’m tentatively calling, “Oh,. I misunderstood What You Meant.”
Other potential franken-mash-ups could include titles like Strawberry Juice, Strawberry Fields, Black and Tan, and Fresh Kill. Feel free to guess what pop culture icons (real or fictional) would occupy each of those, and also suggests some other fun wordplay mash-ups.
I haven’t done much in the last 6 weeks, but my daughter has completed her first work of art. Shortly thereafter, she ate the crayons. I have this framed, and with any luck, this will be the first of countless drawings from my Bean.
MERRY CHRISTMAS! I drew these for my parents, both grandmothers and my in-laws as Christmas gifts. (I also framed the final pieces.) These four sketches are of my little Monchichi.Each of these is 9×12 ink on mixed media paper. The painterly looking one is an ink wash. They depict the Bean at various cute moments over the past year. The last one is my favorite.
Practicing for some other work I want to get into. I’ve had Copic markers for years and never used them. Also have a bunch of nice mixed media paper. Nice and heavy. I’d like to make some ink washes to put both of these materials to good use.
