2018 Watercolor sketch

 

Greetings! Happy New Year!

 

I hope that 2018 brings you much happiness and peace. 2017 was a good year for me personally, but I am ready to move on to 2018.

 

I have already seen a surge in my creativity. It is like my muse finally came back after a bit of a vacation. I have been sketching a lot lately and have started to do a couple of acrylic paintings. I am trying to explore other artistic interests, such as a more traditional painting style rather than digital. I also have been working a lot in watercolor pencils, watercolors, and ink. Mostly just sketches, but I will post from time to time to show you my results.

I am also very excited to be joining with other staff members at the university I work at to feature our creative works via a number of venues, including exhibition. Very exciting!

 

Check out my Instagram also as I blog there as well. 

 

Thank you for stopping by!

 

Happy Halloween

 

Happy Autumn, Happy Halloween and Happy Harvest!

I hope your Fall is filled with beautiful colors, warmth, and lots of fun!

Happy Mother’s Day!

I want to wish all of the Moms in my life a very special day! 

Swimming Pig Party

There are swimming pigs from the Bahamas on Instagram! Check them out here ! I saw a post about them and that inspired this little watercolor painting. I used my Windsor Newton Cotman watercolor half pans, a graphite pencil, and my Micron .08 black pen on Strathmore Bristol to create this illustration. I haven’t created a fun drawing like this in a while, it was great to revisit cartooning!

 

Flower Series 9

 

The ninth in my flower series features flowers from the Autumn season. Sketched with graphite, painted with watercolors, and inked with india ink.

Kidlit Safety Pins

The wonderful Jarrett Krosoczka, author and illustrator, posted on his Facebook and Twitter about adding a safety pin to our characters. Here is his post on Facebook:
