More Sidewalk Art: Twenty-Four

A while back I wrote a post about some artwork I did inspired by a book:  Drawing Lab for Mixed-Media Artists: 52 Creative Exercises to Make Drawing Fun, by Carla Sonheim. (Look here for that post.) It’s turned into an ongoing series. I’ve been very inspired by the same subject – the cracks in the sidewalks under my feet.

My method is to take one photo and rotate it through a circle – that way I can do four drawings from one photo. Here is the source photo for the drawings done on 7/15/20:

and here is the artwork.

Four Little Scenes

These four scenes are found within a few miles of my house. I drew them on a page in my sketchbook. The drawings were done in May 2020.

I’ll show you the drawings and then larger versions of the photos.

Minuscule Illustrations: Balance

In October 2017 I came across an internet blog challenge for a story written in two sentences. I wrote a story. Liking the format, I did another one. Another one. And another.

Quite a few stories later, I had enough for a book. Not only did I have stories, but I had written a short poem and created a brush and India ink illustration for each one as well.

The result was Minuscule, published in 2018. I’m now going to show you the book illustrations as an ongoing feature on this blog, once a week. I’ll link back to the story (they have been published one by one on my poetry blog).

If you want to hold the entire book in your hand, the print version is available on Amazon.

 

Today’s story is “Balance“. And…Read the story here.
