Winter scrabblings

Oy! I just noticed how long it’s been since I updated my blog. A long time (Happy Hallowe’en again everyone!) I’ve had a lot of projects (Village by the Sea! Fireside Magazine #3! And others) not to mention Thanksgiving and Hanukkah and the impending time-crisis that is Christmas.

I don’t really have much new to show or talk about, but I feel bad for the blog-neglect so here: some things from my sketchbook!

Have a wonderfully dragonish day and I’ll be back!

Outdoor drawing days

Spring, waiting just around the corner all winter long, has truly sprung on us here in the Mid-Atlantic. We’ve had highs above 70°F for most of the week which — while troubling in what it might mean for the coming summer — makes for good outdoor sketching weather.

So here… some sketches!

Bald cardinal

This poor be-mited chap's been getting progressively more pathetic looking every time he visits our feeder. He's doing good otherwise, though. Has a mate, is king cardinal of the territory. Just... has a tonsure.

Bird dragon

I've been noodling around with this image for weeks now, playing with colored pencil shading and blending techniques.

Seal person

Was considering possible mermaid types while sitting and watching Evan fix the weather stripping on his old volvo. Doodled this in the process.

If you’d like more art, go take a peek at my website. I just updated it. :)
