New Doodles!

Hi Everyone :)

This week marked a very important event in the life of my cousin. She graduated from HS with a full Presidential Scholarship to Cal State Long Beach (My Alma Mater! Whoo Hooo!) So Proud of her hard work and accomplishments.

I did a medium size "doodle" of a wise ol' owl for her present. It's a running theme with us ;) Anyway, I did some acrylic color washes over the drawing on canvas board and then used a bamboo pen with India ink to doodle on the top. So much fun, and I'm totally going to do more of these. A lot of people doodle fabulous art and I don't want to take from their work by doing the exact same thing. I plan to use more of an illustrative take on these. We'll see how they turn out!

Next, I made a doodled card out of colored card stock. This was super easy and got the idea from Artsyville   Here's the link to her Doodle Cards

Hope you guys go over there and try out this cool idea. She's got a ton of other fun things to try as well. :)

Costume Figure Drawings

I took a class in school focusing on clothing and how it lays upon the figure. It was a great class and I recommend everyone to try and take something similar. Here are some drawings I did during that class.

These first two were drawings I rendered to be fairytale characters. The final project was to make a poster advertisement and I chose to do one on Children's Theater.
I'm still here!

I'm working on some Top Secret projects for a few birthdays :) so of course I can't show them yet till the recipients open them.

Check back in a bit to see the finished projects!
