Back to the Sketching....

It's been a few months since I've been able to draw. I'm back to working in my daily sketchbook I started when I was a member of Everyday Matters. I am bound and determined to complete this sketchbook. I did this baby rat sketch on my birthday from a picture I found on the internet. He is just sooooo CUTE! That smile stole my heart.



We attended an comic book/sci-fi/etc based sketch club last night in Abilene and had a blast! We are definitely going back. I started this sketch during the session and finished it up today. It is done in BIC permanent marker. The reference was a Magic:the Gathering poster in the room. I think it has some promise.

Contemplation

Here's something a little different. It's a digital 'painting' using a program called Poser. I'm thinking about making him into wallpaper. What do ya'll think?

25 Motif Challenge #15 and A Challenge

I haven't done much new tatting this last month. I was busy getting settled into my new home and working on some other crafting projects intended to reduce crafting stash.

One of my projects for the next year is to make as many small ornaments in every craft I do to send to the soldiers overseas. A handmade Christmas ornament helps remind each one that someone back home cares. I challenge each of you to do the same and then find a chapter of the Blue Star Mothers or some other soldier suport group and offer them your talent. You do not have to support the war to support the soldier.
