Meow inc. #Damecember (D)

After #noshaveNovember, J suggested #Damecember and I was all about that idea. I've only done a couple so far but they've been great. Ladies are fun to draw.

Michelle Pfeiffer is the best Catwoman. Fight me.

Princess and Pirate inc. #movember (D)

I was sorry to hear about William Goldman's passing a little while ago. What a writer.

I've also wanted to color this for a while and hey, it's even on trend for #movember. When I was a kid I thought the 'stache was gross but he rocks that look.
Sketch version from September 2017:

#noshaveNovember 2018 (D)

Moving on from Inktober, #noshaveNovember was a solid opportunity to draw a lot of great facial hair, including on this fellow, who I did not envision as a redhead in the sketch but who ended up maybe channeling Bill Weasley.
P.S. Stop it, JKR. Just all of it.


Inktober 2018 (D)

Inktober has yet again come and gone, so here's the grid!

Also, it turns out I don't think I ever actually posted last year's so here you go:


There were some fun ones both of these years, and it's always good to get the drive to draw something every day for a whole month.

"You're a Hipster, Harry" (D)

Credit for the title goes to @obasistudios

When it's Harry's birthday you draw hipster Harry in his hip Hogwarts uniform.  I can't not keep coming back to this design, he's just so cool.

#drawdrewinyourstyle (D)

There's this meme going around like wildfire where someone posts a drawing and invites other artists to draw it in their own style.  I did this slightly sleepy/possibly grumpy self portrait with bad posture and thought, heck, why not host my own?  There's a good chance not many people will participate but we'll see.

Lots of Marvel this month.

Portrait study of Mr. Stark
Random Instadude
Gesture versions

Until next month.

Self-Appointed Lord of Star (D) [UPDATED]

I never quite understood the name but I don't suppose that's the point. I've actually drawn Chris Pratt once before and I like this one much better.
This led to this:
17 May UPDATE -- Which led to this:
Now with more Mantis!  Check it out on Instagram to swipe through sketch, gesture and B&W versions, along with a timelapse video.
I'm actually not a huge fan of these movies but these were really fun to draw anyway.

Fresh Figure Drawings for April 2018 (D)

I only had time for a couple Figure Drawing Fridays this month (though that didn't stop me from posting on the weeks I couldn't get a new piece done, ha).  One go each at gestures and portraits this time.
Gestures from my brain

Revolutionaries and Monarch (D)

Last weekend I went to see Hamilton in SLC and it was just what I expected and also had lots of surprises.  I did some arts which were appreciated on Instagram by the actors!

Li'l Moana and Flounder (D)

New commission undertaking!  Could turn out to be a fun continuing project.
A look at the process.  I like the sketch best, ha.

7 APRIL 2018 UPDATE:

The pins have arrived!  I think they turned out pretty great.

Fresh Figure Drawings for February 2018 (D)

Not too many this time, it was a busy month.  Just some fit fellows.

Sketchy sketch

I liked this one best, and the closeup gave me a chance to add the tattoo.

Happily Ever Two Weeks Later (D)

A couple weeks ago I realized with a pang that in our busyness and wrangling of kids J and I totally forgot to take our traditional Happily Ever After photo at DCA... so I decided to just take care of that the best way I knew how. A little late-night Valentine's Day P.S. as February rolls into March.

And it just so happens that some family went a couple weeks after we did, so this is as close to a personal photograph of the actual time we were there as I could hope for. Thanks, Jack et al.!

From Absaroka (D)

We recently finished watching Longmire and enjoyed it mostly but would probably have rewritten the entire last half hour.  #SundaySketches characters!
Fie on the wireless scanner but yay for Photoshop adjustments.

Learning To Dance (D)

We introduced the kids properly to The Little Mermaid as part of their Disneyland preparation and they were suitably impressed.  I've had this drawing in my head for three weeks at least.
