I'm an artist and educator, who is fascinated by how creativity expresses itself. I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, and love exploring new ways to put images together.
I've been married for over 15 years, and have two children (who keep me up to date on my education!)
This topic proved to be hard because I had too many ideas--it was difficult to sort out one and then put time into it. Originally this was a dragon reacting to a "Here there be dragons" sign. But when I scanned it in I realised I'd gotten impatient with the sign and it didn't match the rest of the drawing...
But it is Monday already and I need to get on with other things.
This is another topic where at first I just thought, "Huh?" But I have found if I let a topic alone for a bit an image will come to mind. The other thing that I'm working on is faces. At my portfolio review she said she wanted to see more faces. And the more I thought about it I do tend to shy away from faces. So I'm trying to get more comfortable with faces. Also in this piece I was exploring working from memory. (Watercolor pencils)
Just a quick sketch for this week's topic. [green pencil on paper] I was at an illustration workshop on Saturday so my illustration energies were going elsewhere. My son and the boy next door are best friends, and while in reality the trampolines are too far apart for this, I'm sure it has crossed their minds. (Or maybe I shouldn't show him this one...)
