I’m taking Lila Roger’s Make Art That Sells Children’s Book class and we’ve already generated a ton of work and this is just 2nd week!! As I was creating character emotions in photoshop I decided to see if I could figure out how to do an animated gif. I mean, it’s probably been 10 plus years since I’ve tried! So, here goes…a little rough, not (really) animated and all that. SInce I didn’t really know what to do with it after making it, I decided that here on my blog that no one ever visits is a good place for it. LOL.
So, there’s this thing on Instagram where artists invite other artists to take a stab at drawing one of their character drawings in “your own style”. This is one of those. Greatly inspired by Amanda MacFarlane -This Animated Life on instagram drawn in my own style. Loved doing it. #drawthisinyourstylechallenge Original is here: https://www.instagram.com/p/BuDdu6AFN0B/
Sometimes we are so laser focused on the tasks at hand that we forget to enjoy the moment. I’ve been busy working on the business of art that I just decided I needed a break to doodle something without pressure and just for fun. As a result, I now have this self-reminder! Don’t forget to skip along the way!
Just a silly little doodle I forgot about.
Was doodling my dogs and this happened. I love them so very much, even if they only give me a sliver of the bed to sleep on. #adoptdontshop #rescuedogsareeverything
As I’ve been updating my site and going through files, I realized I never got samples for these lenticular stickers I designed years ago. Ordered on Amazon and a day later, they’re here! Weee. Fun! I used to LOVE lenticular story books when I was a kid so this brings back fond memories.
OK, I never really got far with the blog when I first built this site. Let’s give it another go, shall we?! Here’s just a small snippet from a layout I did for American Girl Magazine. It’s teeny tiny in the magazine so I thought it might be nice to have a closer peek
always with the doodling.
Hello. Welcome to my brand new blog! Here's a picture of my most wonderful dog, Gracie.
