Some New Business

I had thoughts of starting a new series of animal/food mashups. I did a sort of introduction piece (snail with a cinnamon roll shell) and then sort of... stopped. I had a lot of great ideas, mined from my friends' kids... but, I guess I lost interest? I'm not sure really. Maybe I'll revisit it, later.

.

So as I'm floundering around, attempting to find my next project, I doodled this in my "300 Drawing Prompts" sketchbook.

They put "hula dancer" right next to "slice of pie" and since I'm an efficient sort of gal I figured... why not?

Blognesia

Blognesia: when you have a blog that you sort of forget about for (checks watch) going on six months now.

A few of those months were spent not doing anything art related, aside from the occasional awful sketch. I'm starting to come back out of that again and I've done a few things that I'm willing to share with you, the person who accidentally ended up here while searching for a cannoli recipe.

In no particular order:

A commissioned tribute to my late uncle, Bernie:


A botanical print-inspired painting that I did for the cover of my work's writing publication that turned out to be quite popular, so I made prints of it:


A devotee of the 1991 version of Beauty and the Beast, I was hesitant to see the remake. Overall, I thought it was great, but the Beast's face really bothered me. I still can't put my finger on why. But I decided to draw the original version as sort of a "detox":

Finally, I've started a new series of food/animal mashups. I've started off with a snall that has a cinnamon roll shell:


I will, of course, color this eventually.
