“Sketch” is Maybe A Fancy Word for What I Am Doing Here

Here are a couple of TV time doodle/drawing/sketch/my hands can’t be still, from December, 2018.

The first one is a blind-contour drawing of my husband sitting slouched in his chair. When I showed him this sketch, he said, My nose does not look like that. He is right, and neither does his hair, but I have got down his posture just perfectly. Just saying.

This next sketch started off as a tiny study for a series of landscape-like paintings I want to do but for now exist only in a lot of small drawings mostly done on scrap paper (like this one). Somehow it turned itself into an odd piece of furniture in an odd room…

The moral of this story is: No reason not to draw wherever and whenever you are. Get that pen out and get it traveling on paper!

Leftovers Part 4

I have a box full of leftovers from the illustrations I did for my Minuscule book (poetry and short story combinations). If you are familiar with my poetry blog you have read some of the pieces in the book but seen them with other pieces of my artwork illustrating them online.

You’ll have to get the book to get the real effect (here is it at Amazon.) But I took the leftovers (I often drew several pictures to get the one I wanted) and plan to use them in collage projects. The original illustrations are all done in India ink, no color. Here in this series I show some pieces that I colored in with markers.

Group Number Four.
