Sunday Sketches -- Baudelaires and Friends

It's been a while, but it's time again for more Sunday Sketches! My contribution this time around is based on a favorite book series that The Wife and I just finished re-reading together, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events.  I just love these Baudelaires so much!  They are such charming and resourceful and reasonably attractive children, each one unique and full of personality, and they really care about each other.  Confidentially, this is also a tease for a possible future post featuring a lot more artistic documentation of the Baudelaire variety...
And The Wife had another foray into the world of Pen and did another batch of delightful pen people.  Some of them were inspired by recent movies and/or TV shows we've been watching (can you spot them?), and others are original characters.  I love her pages of little peeps!  They're so tiny but they have a lot of personality.


  1. Those Baudelaires bring back so many memories of all the sketches you used to draw of them. You should do like a day where you both post an old drawing from the past for fun!

    Julie, you should color your little peeps! Surely it would take only a minute, they would be so cute! I like the Ponyo, as does Penny! I feel bad for the friend about to get cymbal crashed.

  2. I love the touches you added to the Baudelaires! Especially Klaus' determination. I'll be watching eagerly for the next Baudelaire post. And out of J's sketches I recognized Rapunzel, Elisa, and Spiderman. Thank you both for all of your sketches!!!
