Sketchy Sunday: mini muskrat doodle

Argh, I'm late again! Sorry, I was out most of the day.. Sketching, ironically. It was Sakura Matsuri at the Botanic Garden, and I always turn that into a sketching opportunity. (Yes, I WILL post those sketches eventually! As soon as I get around to scanning them...) For now because it's a late post and I need dinner, have a mini muskrat doodle. Spotted from a canoe in Maine somewhere. It was carrying a bunch of weeds to its muskrat house. Cute little bugger...

Figure Friday Archives: Hand Studies

Digging into the archives yet again... Here's some neck and hand studies I did for a comic cover challenge on (last February, if I recall...) The prompt for this cover consisted of two measly words, "Amy's Doll". Yep. That's it. So of course I found a way to make it macabre... (Better resolution version of the final cover can be found here.)

Whatever Wednesday: Central Park Cherry Blossoms

Moving on from magnolias to cherry blossoms... (I should just call these "Floral Wednesdays" at this rate... What d'ya want, it's Spring...) I can't vouch for accuracy in the sketch, I was sketching on a breezy day so the branch I was drawing kept flying out of range. But hey, I had to try. The photos are all from around the Central Park Reservoir (known for amazing cherry trees and annoying joggers...)

Sketchy Sunday: Hyperactive Park Dog

Tiny doodles of a hyper little brown-and-white dog that was running around in the park yesterday... (Maybe a Jack Russell Terrier? I'm not sure.) (Definitely enthusiastic, whatever it was...)

Figure Friday Archives: Drawathon Revolution

More from the archives, these are from one of Michael Alan's Drawathons (not to be confused with the Pratt Drawathon...) The theme was "French Revolution". This was Theresa late in the evening doing a late-in-the-evening exhausted model pose...

Whatever Wednesday: Yellow!

A miscellany of yellow flowery Spring nonsense... A daffodil sketch I did for my sister's birthday, and a mess of yellow magnolias...

Sketchy Sunday - Random Burro

Whoops, late post is late... I'm caught in the throes of last-minute tax stuff, blargh. So here's a quick random burro from the archives... and then it's back to Tax Hell for me! (I think it's a burro, anyway... Could be a donkey. Something like that. It was mostly hiding in a shed at Shelburne Farms, so I couldn't see much of it, but it poked its head out for a bit and I caught a quickie doodle...)

Whatever Wednesday: Last Batch of Magnolias

Okay, okay, just one more batch of magnolias and that's it, I swear! Anyway, they're pretty much all gone by now. But I caught some of the late stragglers in Central Park by Cleaopatra's Monument... Yeah, the good old classic Cleopatra's-Monument-and-Magnolia photo opp, I know. But the light... HOT DAMN the light was amazing that day. So I went a little crazy taking shots from every direction. (These are the times when I wish I had a real camera... Last one broke, haven't had a chance to replace it yet, argh.)

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! Or Passover! Or just plain old Happy Spring, yo! I believe an Easter Bunny is appropriate for the occasion...

Figure Friday Archives: Pratt Drawathon

Okay, I didn't have time to scan anything for today, so I'm dipping into the archives... Found some stuff from a Pratt Drawathon, I thought these were kind of interesting, so here they are.

(I recall having a raging migraine throughout this entire Drawathon... Hence results from that session got a bit... interesting. There's some stuff I ain't never gonna show, unless I want a good laugh.) (Pizza, cookies, and Sprite didn't exactly help my brain any that night, I'll say that.)

Whatever Wednesday-Star Magnolias

More Magnolias! Mostly pink star magnolias... I love those, they're so damn frilly. And so excessively pink.
