SkADaMo Day 30 – Last Day!!

November 30, 2012

last day pencil

Wooooo hoooo! We did it, y’all!

Wouldn’t you know, my last sketch would be the most rushed. I’m out the door right now. But I wanted to thank each and every person who stopped by to root me on this month! You just can’t know how much that helped me. I feel like I’ve gotten my mojo back!

I also want to thank all the talented, inspiring bunch of sketchers who joined me in SkADaMo! This year was much enriched by everyone’s participation and cheerleading for each other! You all rock!

So, of course, since I’m a glutton for punishment, I think I’ll do HoHoDooDa again this year. I hope my partners in crime join me again, if they can, they are busy talented ladies! Of course, anyone who feels the spirit move them can join as well.

Have a happy, happy holiday season everyone!

So I was sitting around sketching at lunch and “The Owl and the Pussycat” just popped onto the page. Only problem is, I got them mixed up. The Owl is supposed to be the one playing guitar. Oh, well, I imagine after more than a century, the kitty would like get some licks in.

Get it… licks… guitar licks… and kitties lick themselves?

Yeah, fine, whatever, I’m going to bed.

THE OWL AND THE PUSSYCAT
by Edward Lear

The Owl and the Pussycat went to sea
In a beautiful pea-green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.

The Owl looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
“O lovely Pussy! O Pussy, my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are.” Read the rest of this entry »
