Sketchbook Friday #30


This week's sketchbook Friday sketch is one I created last week. It is for my latest painting, which is on a small 8 x 10 canvas and is about half done now.

Sorry my posts have been so infrequent. Trying to get ready for my parents coming to visit next week.

I am meeting with the writers for the graphic novel tomorrow, which hopefully means that I can start on full-pages soon. This will be the first time I have met them in person. Everything we have done thus far has been through email, instant messaging, and skype. Hooray for technology!

Sketchbook Friday #29

I went through a period of drawing Drag Queens, for awhile, and I have several of these pen and ink sketches.

This one is my favorite.

Book of the Week #24

My husband chose this week's book: Guns, Germs, and Steel by Jared Diamond

In his words:

It is a fantastic book about a fascinating subject, but not for those looking for a quick read. It is written more like a scientific paper, but is well worth the effort.

I love it when my husband actually has time to read something!

Sketchbook Friday #28


This week's sketchbook Friday is a page of ink washes created in my 2nd life drawing class, I think this was junior year of college.

My professor was obsessed with the angles and proportions of the human body, and although the class drove me nuts, I learned a lot about accuracy.

Book of the Week #23


Ok, so I know I've already picked one book on homesteading for the book of the week, but I've found one that is so much better. I just had to share it.

The Backyard Homestead covers everything in depth, with detailed illustrations, regional discrepancies, and practical plans. I actually bought this book after just paging through it, and have read it twice already. I can't wait to have a house and yard so I can get started on the projects detailed in this book.

Our fox masks were a huge hit at Halloween. People kept asking to get their picture taken with us, and asked me where I bought them! They couldn't believe that I had made the masks out of plastic bottles and duct tape. Here's a picture of my handsome hubby in his full costume. Enjoy!

Book of the Week and Sketchbook Friday...err Wednesday


Since we are going to be busy this weekend I'm combining sketchbook friday and the book of the week into one post...and it's on a Wednesday, so...yeah.

Anyway, my final Halloween edition book of the week is Extreme Halloween by Tom Nardone. This is the Extreme Pumpkins guy, and he has some pretty fun and creative ideas for costumes, lawns, and decorations. I like it because it's not filled with cutesy crafts.

This week's sketchbook image is a creepy one (I hope sufficiently creepy for Halloween). Just a couple sketches I did two years ago brainstorming for a painting that never materialized.

Happy Halloween everybody!
