Day 10 Rain rain go away

Its rainy here today, so I had plenty of inspiration for this one. I like her! I think I'll take this one further and go for some pen and ink... and maybe some color.

Day 9

This one is from yesterday, at the coffee shop downtown. The display case was full of beautiful cakes.

Day 8

I recently finished up a project having to do with a little girl and birds - and I find I can't get them out of my head! This little sketch isn't related to that project, but I'm liking the birdcage... maybe I'll have to do more.

Day 7

Phew, its been awhile! I did these random doodles a few days ago, but between having a friend from out of town here, and having lots of prior commitments, I hadn't the chance to post anything.

Elephant! I thought it was time to draw an animal.

Day 2 of 21

I've been listening to a lot of books on cd lately, and felt I needed a music day.

The 21 Day Challenge - Day 1

When I went to the NESCBWI conference a couple months ago, the keynote speaker challenged us to find 15 minutes a day to practice our craft, in the hopes that after 21 days, we will have developed a new habit. Well now I am up to the challenge! My friend Gina started this awhile ago, and has gotten a boat load of artists to join her - in fact she's onto her second round already - and now that I've got Surtex behind me and have finished up some pressing illustration assignments, I am ready to begin. I thought about what kind of theme I'd like to have for my challenge - concentrating on people or animals? black and white work only? color studies? no computer illustrations, only hand? - but in the end I've decided not to limit myself - I want to be able to do whatever comes to mind - so here's Day 1, though I think I will avoid the computer. And after drawing ALL day today to finish up an assignment, my wrist and hand are exhausted, so I only spent 15 minutes on this one, but I hope to spend longer times on upcoming days.
