Sketch: Taking the Bad Days with the Good

Sketch of a windy, cold day on April 6, 2017

Today was a day filled with blustery wind, ominous clouds, and spitting rain. Really! The rain felt like the world was spitting on me. I know a little about that. I went to middle school after all!

There are days that just seem they weren’t made for anyone. Then there are days that feel they were custom made for just me. We can persevere when we remember both kinds of days are coming. 

On this cold, windy day, I discovered how nice it was to sketch in the iPad Moleskine app. A miserable weather day became a nice discovery day. Now that’s a way to turn lemons into lemonade!

Day 6 of 21 Day Challenge: Cubism

Cubism has never been my thing, so it took some extra motivation to get this drawing going. Maybe it’s Picasso in a Peugeot. I owned a Peugeot once. I’m willing to bet I was the only Hoosier with a 505sti. They never caught on in Indiana.

Day 4 of 21 Day Drawing Challenge

Drawing of my hand in four different styles
Today’s challenge was to draw your non dominant hand. Yes, I am left-handed. And yes, I washed my hands before beginning this exercise.
The four different styles are a semi-realistic hand, a cartoon hand, my hand as a robot/skeletal look, and a continuous line drawing.

Day 2 of 21 day drawing challenge

Today’s challenge was to draw a continuous line drawing of a smiling face, hand holding a bottle, man on a unicycle and a running dog.

This is a challenge through a Von Glitshka video series at Lynda.com.

Remember Hurricane Season, 2005?

I drew this idea back in 2005 when the hurricane season was brutal. It feels like a distant memory considering how mild the last couple of seasons have been.

It just goes to show you things change quickly. if things look bad, they’ll get better eventually. If things are good, remember to save a little for the future. You never know what  may come your way.
