Inktober Day 6 “Drool”

October 6, 2018

Busy today, so I’m shamelessly cheating. This lil dude is from Inktober 2014. I tweaked him a bit and I’m just gonna leave him right here.

Inktober Day 6, prompt is “Drool”

This was supposed to be an Inktober, but ran out of time to ink. So, it’s really more Inktober-ish.

The preliminary sketch for 5th day of Inktober.

Inktober Day 4 “Spell”

October 4, 2018

spell

This little miss resides in my devices, attempting to prevent misspellings and unnecessarily changing my words. But where is she when I need legitimate typo protection? Where I ask you?

My fourth post for “Inktober.” The prompt was “Spell.”

Roasted

Once this pesky monster makes it’s appearance it wears out fans and it’s welcome very quickly.

My third post for “Inktober.” The prompt was “Roasted.”

Tranquil

Never speak it’s name. Ahem…you-know-who is arguably the most dangerous of all the monsters. If this critter smells, tranquility, contentment or creativity of any kind, it quickly gets to work. In a voice barely distinguishable from your own you’ll hear: “Who do I think I am?” “I’m just a hack.” “Why do I even try?”

Fear Scoldemort… whoops, I said the name!

My second post for “Inktober.” The prompt was “Tranquil.”

Kvetchenaggis

Beware the dread Poisonous Kvetchenaggis. Left untreated, this wee, murmuring monster could burrow into your ear, filling it with all manner of negative blather.

It’s been a while, so I thought I’d kick off the season with Inktober. I’ve been pretty much keeping up but forgot to post them here. So, I will be posting, in rapid succession the first four.

Hope I can keep up for the whole month. Wish me luck!

Post Holiday Doldrumoids

January 2, 2014

We’ve always known of their existence, but for the first time ever, caught in mid listless, despondency, is what experts commonly refer to as the Post-holiday Doldrumoid…in the flesh……or rather, in the doodle.

No matter. It’s official. We have a Doldrumoid pandemic on our hands. They are here and we have got to deal with them.

Some effective methods for coping with these ubiquitous yet unwelcome creatures are as follows:

1. Ignore them. Doldrumoids have been known to eventually lose interest in their host and reluctantly disappear after a week or two.

2. Keep that crunchy Christmas tree up for another month, along with the exterior icicle lights and the inflatable snow globe on your lawn. Do this while ignoring the fact that the holidays are over. This method seems to keep the Doldrumoids at bay, but leaves the door wide open for Lackus Deselfrespectus spors to take hold.

There are no easy answers, but…

3. For those of us who need to get back to business… pronto, there are some drastic measures that can be implemented. Take tree and exterior lights down, box up Christmas decorations, shove said boxes up in garage rafters, eat salad, go to the gym and then actually make that deadline for your employer/client as opposed to staring blankly at the computer monitor (close mouth, wipe drool off chin, mind don’t get any on the keyboard.)

In the event none of the above methods prove effective, one can always hold on until February 14 when a virulent strain of Guiltus Cupidus overcomes the weakened Doldrumoids, offering minimal relief to some sufferers.

This has been an important public service announcement. You may now return to your regularly scheduled program. Thank you.

Another redraw and a repost from a few years ago. Thought it might be apropos.

So, you know, I love bunnies (and who doesn’t,) and zombies are the coolest. So, why not a zombie bunny? Well, took a peek on the Googles for zombie bunny and guess what? It’s a thing!

It’s a big fat thing! 

Who knew? Not me. I should have.

Anywho, undaunted I proceeded to add my zombunnie to the mix.

My Censor

February 17, 2012

I’ve been working with Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way” with an online group since the beginning of the year. It’s been a wonderful, insightful journey so far.

One of the things you become aware of through the weekly readings, exercises and tasks, is the nasty, critical voice, nattering constantly inside your head.

The Censor.

The Censor continually does you the great service of letting you know how much your work sucks, how wrong everything you do is, and what a hack you are, just to name a few.

Ms. Cameron suggests one of the many techniques for dealing with this annoying denizen of your psyche, is to draw a cartoon version, in an effort to expose it and take away some of The Censor’s power.

So, to that end… meet my big, fat censor! Booooo! Hisssss! Oh, shut your pie hole Mr. Smartypants Censor.

I’m thinking, with any luck and continued work he will eventually lose some of his size and girth. I’ll keep you posted.

happy halloween!

If a sight like this doesn’t get your heart racing… well then I don’t know what will.

The Illustration Friday theme for the week is racing.

Sheesh, I almost missed this week’s Illustration Friday because of hunkering down, working on promo stuff. Then I thought, hey, the art on the front of my business card is linked to the back… eh, eh, right, right?

Ok, a bit of a stretch, but hey.

Constantly looking over here shoulder, Zeldalina was more concerned about where she’d been than where she actually was at the moment. A tad hazardous while flitting around on a broom, wouldn’t you say?

So our lesson for the day is what?
Our lesson for the day is: Live in the moment… or end up as a Halloween decoration, wrapped around your neighbor’s tree.

The end.
