I decided to join The Sketchbook Project!  It has been two weeks and the sketchbook's not here yet :S I hope I get it next week and in good condition. But I couldn't wait for it and got to work on my first drawing. I'm also learning to use traditional media so it was a good practice.

You had to choose a theme for the sketchbook and I went with "The Last Word Ever Spoken".  It was tragic and dramatic and can be taken literally.  I don't think a lot :)

This is the final. It didn't go as planned because I couldn't control the watercolor! :S

I like seeing how other artists work, so I thought I'd take pictures while making it:

Annoying masking fluid :(  I let it completely dry before rubbing it out but it still ruined the paper.  Maybe I put too much? I'll try to stay away from masking fluid..

Finally, I outlined with colored pencils.  I thought it lacked movement so I used white acrylic for the vertical lines.  I couldn't find any white gel pen, that would have been better.

With the box bear ;)

IF: Round

For all would-be moms :)

Little Sharpay just can't tear herself away from the cameras. :)  That's Amy enjoying the dance and Bridget getting frustrated with Sharpay.

IF: Silent

This is inspired by our very hot November weather.

very hot Sunday afternoon + cold soda + pail of water = not bad


And here's our turtle, sleeping on a Sunday afternoon.  (it can get really boring in an aquarium, I guess)


EDIT:  I've been making a bunch of illustrations to update my portfolio and I think this one fits Silent too.

EDIT:  Thank you for all the comments! Really appreciate it!

Theses prints are already in the shop.  Please check them out -->

IF: Stripes

I love drawing these feel good pictures.  Coffee while raining = ♥ 

This one was inspired when me and my husband had breakfast at this cute cafe near the hotel when we were in Bangkok. 

I have drawn a lot of striped scarves but I don't own one. :S  I think they look awesome in pictures.  I have another idea for stripes, I hope I can pull it off in time for friday!

EDIT:  Thank you for all the wonderful comments!
