Cinderellys (D)

Every year we watch a Disney animated movie for Valentine's Day. This year it was Cinderella. This is a random gesture sketch from 2012 and a quick painting exercise to freshen it up.
Accurate coloring FTW.
Then we thought we'd give the remake another try to see if we'd like it better the second time around... Not so much I'm afraid, but that dress! It sure is one.
Talk about blue.

Commission: Hans and Janelle (D)

Fun commission via ArtCorgi:
I updated it after delivery to add body hair and smokey eyes because these things are clearly important.

Fresh Figure Drawings for January 2017 (D)

Lots of collages this month!  In case you're interested you can always follow along with these weekly on Instagram @drewgrahamart.
It was the 6th of January after all.
Inspired by the passing of James C. Christensen, a favorite artist from my formative years.

Detail from the previous because I liked how loose and gestural it turned out.  Ref: Instagram #VASAfitness > @tycoy/@jeremyquerido
Good month!  What to do today?

P.S.  How long did it take me to sign my arts the right year after it changed?  Almost a month, that's how long.

Family Christmas "Photo" (D)

I was getting ready to blog about Christmas and then I remembered we didn't have a family photo from the day so I took this sketch I did and painted it and voila.  Close enough.
Sketch version for fun:

Meet the Artist 2017 (D)

I was actually planning on doing this at some point but then I was tagged on Instagram so that sealed the deal! Yay for art memes and harmless bandwagons. So, 👋 everyone.
I want to do another one just do I can get more specific or add more things to each side (like pizza and Survivor/hypocrites and being bored). Also if I did it again I think I would trade cookies for sticky rice and Hmong eggrolls. Qab kawg.

And I can't believe I neglected apostrophe abuse on the left side... I'll just make myself feel better by lumping that in with bad writing.

J has done these in the past, maybe she can be persuaded to post one.

A pretty varied set for this month.

Sketch version for fun
Inspired by a pending evening at the Yule Ball
Santa-inspired without reference (obvious?) with a touch of While You Were Sleeping
I was a little loose with my definition of figure drawings this time around, which was fun for a change.
