I’m still writing my picture book with the Christmas snail. I think I may have a good idea of the direction I want to go, so I did this little sketch to test out the idea.
Trying to get out of an illustration funk, so I did a rough winter scene painting.
Here are some drawings I made to be colored and cut out and glued together to make cone people, for Christmas decorations.
This one makes me giggle, poor sprite. Glump!
Channeling some more of the Christmas spirit with a friendly reindeer and a mug of hot chocolate. Mmmmmm.
I have to admit a big level of displeasure with this image. It is not what I want it to be. I struggled for quite a while to get it right, and in the end just admitted defeat. I may come back to it when I have time, and get some distance from it.
Wishful thinking on my part, being that it is still stinkin’ hot here. But trying to get a head start on Christmas, and pretend that it isn’t melting outside.
Day number 2’s prompt was pumpkin+coffee. And this is what I ended up with. All these prompts are really putting me in the mood for colder weather. Meanwhile its in the 100’s here in California this week. Not exactly sweater weather.
Today is day 1 of @alexandradikaia 30 day creative challenge for fall. I’m going to see how many I can get done over the next 30 days. I’m shooting for 3 a week, but we’ll see. My prompt for today was “flower fox.”
This is my best friend, Erin. Oh man, the adventures we had…
I also spent some more time on day 2’s illustration
I don’t know if I will be able to keep up with #childhoodweek but I want to try. I didn’t have time to do color for day one (video games/toys) I might come back to this later. It was a toss up between this (my memory of my dad bringing home a computer for the first time, the giant floppy disks, playing snake) and giant towers of legos.
