Another doodle from traveling. I have had a little obsession with the diamond shape, particularly when it’s in a series. They keep showing up unexpectedly. Enjoy and see you next time!
A quick sketch I did while at the airport in Indiana. Like I stated before not up to par but it was kind of hard to get into the right mode when traveling. I found line work was the easiest thing to focus on due to its repetitive nature. Repetition can be calming which as we know is always useful when traveling! I must admit the trip to and from was easy peasy and Indianapolis Airport is a breeze compared to Logan! The airplane was the smallest I had flown on and luckily rather empty. I never had to sit uncomfortably next to the heavy breather or the person who smelled a little too strongly of garlic, YAY! Enjoy and see you next time.
While in Indiana, I was just working when I was able to which should have absolutely been more often but unfortunately I came down with a bug for almost my entire trip. I did manage to draw/paint a few images literally pulling inspiration from anything around me! As you can see this contains a lot of fruit inspired by a fruit bowl non-the-less. Enjoy and see you next time!
Doodles from Indiana. Went to good old Indiana to visit one of my besties and her new little baby aka. Cricket. Was not exactly in my routine but I was required to produce something during my time there since the trip happened so close to the deadline! Needless to say the image is not exactly to my typical standards but what are you gonna do? It’s fun and whimsical and that is enough for me. Enjoy and see you next time!
This started out as a doodle and progressed into a painting of sorts. These strange honeycomb like objects seemed to just connect to each other to form some abstract shape. I was not going for a beehive or anything even remotely close. I enjoy the heavy line work at the bottom which lightens towards the top. I would like to explore this imagery in a more planned out image as it seemed to get muddy here. Enjoy and see you next time!
It feels like a strange pod of jellyfish. I liked the image here but the color is WAY TO PURE. I really need to do a second attempt with this image and tone it down a bit. The creatures are definitely aquatic but take elements from the Veiled Lady Mushroom which is honestly one of my favorite things to draw. I think they are amazing plant structures. If you are not familiar with them you should probably look it up. Enjoy and see you next time.
This creature is crazy looking. His snout is so distorted but I’m OK with it. I wanted a snarl like face and I think I achieved it. I won’t lie I have no idea what type of animal this is. I literally Googled snarling animal faces and an image somewhat similar to that below popped up and I ran with it. I’d say its a cat… maybe? Enjoy and see you next time.
Carving an image has always been one of the most reward techniques for me. I decided to pick up my tools and tackle and image or two as part of this challenge and I am happy to say it turned out better than anticipated. I have been working on merging two worlds, the creatures which tell a story and abstract environments that have defined my work for so long. I will probably continue with this work once I finish this challenge. For now it’s rather time-consuming and time I do not have. Enjoy and see you next time!
