I have neglected posting for too long! "Abstract Forest" will be uploaded to all my sites over the next day or so, so keep checking back for clothing, pillows, and more with the new print!!! The original drawing is going to be for sale at a local art show (if my application passes). Find all my art product sites here: https://linktr.ee/okhismakingart
Old doodle lost when my previous book was washed.
I've been sketching animals and nature on location since 1989, usually in pen and ink. I saw this takhi/Przewalski's horse at Hustai National Park in Mongolia. Takhi are the only surviving species of genetically wild horse and Mongolia is the only place in the world when they can be seen running free in their native habitat.
I did this drawing from a photo for the 2018 Inktober event using a Pilot EF fountain pen and a Prismacolor white pencil in a Strathmore Toned Tan sketchbook.
I photographed this baby elephant at the San Diego Zoo Wild Animal Park some years ago. He had to walk close to twice as fast to stay with his mother. Created for Inktober 2018. Drawn with a *takes a deep breath* P. Soennecken Bremerburseneeder EF nib, Perle Noire ink on Strathmore 300 vellum bristol (my current go to pen and ink paper).
During a trip to England in 2015 I got to spend over an hour working my way around Stonehenge doing sketches of it from various angles. A crow landed on one of the big sarsen stones long enough to add it to my sketch. It can seem smaller than one imagines at first, but its presence grows on you as you make the circuit. Sadly, a rope barrier had to be put around it years ago due to soil compaction, so it's not possible to walk out among them. But it's an amazing sight in any case. I used a Sakura Micron 0.1 pen in a Pentalic Nature Sketch sketchbook.
Drawn using graphite blocks and soft pastels....:)
Drawing of my favorite writer using colored pencils....:)
"Flying in the sky with a lady in its arms,
The Platform's heading fast out to the farm.
She was harmed unknowingly and now she will become a seed,
From which the platforms now will feed until they breed." -- Drawn with fountain pens, colored with my iPad using Procreate.

It's ok to not make sense. It's ok to not follow a pattern. It's ok to be the odd one out.
Life is too beautiful, too amazing, to eccentric, too weird to fit inside someone else's tiny little box of an opinion about you. Break free out of that and live your life on your terms.
