BUNNY ROCKET2– redo 450

COTTONTAILS IN SPACE

After successfully landing on the moon, Neil “Cottontail” Armstrong was famously quoted as saying, “One small step for a bunny, one giant hop for rabbitkind.

Space is the “Illustration Friday” word of the week. So I dusted this old chestnut off and redrew it.

Little known fact: The Easter Bunny moonlights, filling in for Cupid, to get some extra scratch.

He says, “They don’t call me Dead-Eye Cottontail for nothing!
(Actually, they don’t really call him that, shhhhhh.)

RACE AGAINST TIME

Despite strenuous training and conditioning, Murgatroid found it difficult to beat the clock.

The Illustration Friday theme for this week is “Time.” So, since it is 11:00 pm on Thursday, with only an hour  left to post… time is running out!

SkADaMo 2013 Day 25

November 29, 2013

bloated bunnies 450

Bloated Bunnies

Yep, that’s what I was all day today. Bloated. It’s tradition.

I don’t do the shopping thing on Black Friday. But I do , in fact, bloat. So I suppose it’s really Bloat Friday… for me.

Ok, now on to Sensible Saturday, where smaller portions are the order of the day.

Join me in a waddle on over here to check out my fellow SkADaMoers.

SkADaMo Day 23

November 23, 2012

Sometimes you just have to take the leap.

So leap on by and see what my fellow SkADaMoers are doing, right here.

SkADaMo 2012

November 1, 2012

Hare and hyena.

A quick sketch for e-book I’m currently working on. I’m also experimenting with digital pencil lines, where I typically sketch with traditional pencil and scan. Saves time and trees, I figure.

……………………………….

Why a sketch all of a sudden after a couple month hiatus? Ya see, it’s November and all the cool challenges are well under way. There’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and PiBoIdMo (Picture Book Idea Month), of which I am a participant of again this year.)

There are probably a bunch more, but suffice it to say, November is a busy month for some.

Last year, I thought just to heap even more onto my plate, I’d make November a “sketch a day month” or SkADaMo, for myself. Just trying to get back to the early days of my blog when I feverishly posted just about every single day. When my synapses seemed to be firing on all cylinders and ideas where presenting themselves to me faster than I could sketch or write them down.

Sigh. Those were good days.

This exercise may not have gotten me back to that place completely, but it did get the ole synapses firing again. And I figure between attempting a picture book idea a day and a sketch/blog post a day, I’ll at least have a notebook/sketchbook/blog filled with chicken scratches of some sort or another again this year.

Better than blank pages and outdated blog posts, I say.

I even made a badge for myself last year and one again this year. I may be the only participant, but by golly I have a badge.

If anyone wants to join in, they are more than welcome to grab the smaller badge, off to the side here and start sketching. No rules, just that.

It starts today.

Ends November 30.

……………………………….

Addendum:

Quite a few folks decided to throw their hat into the ring and since there really are no rules or anything remotely resembling organization, I thought I would at least try to include a list of sketchers, right here throughout the month. Otherwise, there are no other rules, regulations, themes, daily words, Facebook pages or anything else resembling organization. Just lots of sketching, commenting back and forth and hopefully lots of inspiration and craft honing!

If there are any broken links, bad links, I forgot anyone, misspelled anyone’s name or any other heinous act was performed, please let me know and I’ll do my best to correct it.

Carry on sketchers!

HoHoDooDa Day 2

December 2, 2011

Squeaking a super quick doodle in at the last possible minute! Spent the day running from one holiday even to the next.

Don’t you just love little kids performing Christmas singing shows? There’s always one taking it all very seriously. Then there is the one who pretty much phones it in. If you’re lucky, there’s the token ham, stealing the scene. And, of course, the one poor little guy who completely chokes. You can tell who he/she  is by the lack of singing or movement and the look of abject terror in they’re eyes. It wouldn’t be a Christmas show without them.

Check out fellow HoHoDooDa pals, Marion and Laura‘s fabulous posts (done at a reasonable hour today.) You wont’ be disappointed.

Wishing you a Scary,Happy Halloween!!

The Illustration Friday theme this week is “scary.” What is scarier than a vampire bunny?

hippity hoppity!

surrender

February 3, 2011

“Surrender!” shouted Murgatroyd, as he pointed his brand new pop gun at Bob.

……………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

The Illustration Friday theme for the week, and for 5 more minutes, is “surrender”. I’m really living on the edge these days!
