"I hear dead people."

Fan art for Lost. I've been sketching the characters as I get ideas for them. It's fun. I sketch the ideas then watch the show and put the details in. During commercials.

Here's the original drawing from my sketchbook.

Hurley's next.

Valentine's Card '09

It started with a sketchbook drawing. I've been into the whole complicated protective suit thing for some reason, lately.
Then we painted a whole sheet of water color paper with texture.
Cut into pieces.

And more pieces.
Attached multiple printed copies of the drawings with glue and added a border.
Some stamps from our daughter's collection and...
Now we gots us a nice stack 'o' Valentimes!

Sketchbooks and Other Sketchbooks

More Saturday morning drawings. This one with a three year-old driving his cars across my leg. Found a great book book at the library called "An Illustrated Life," who apparently also has a site for it. All about people's sketchbooks and journals. I love looking at the interior worlds of artists as I've always been crap at keeping one of my own.

The second is from Sunday while sitting in the Scholastics Award Ceremony. Even though I changed it to "-ick" I actually really appreciate it for what it is. I just wrote it near the end of the ceremony and I had to pee really bad and was beginning to be grumpy.

Sketchy McSketcherson or Why I Need more Practice at Drawing

I love the new moleskin.
"Thoughts Cought in Her Hair" Image first, then title. Doesn't always happen that way. Pencil drawing over paper and acryllic.

My daughter has dance class at the Dance Collective. So I draw in between conversations with other parents.
