I have been participating in Lauren Hom’s #HOMwork challenges via Instagram. This weeks challenge was to draw the same letter 16 ways. I drew cats instead. I may come back to the whole lettering thing at some point!
Drawn on my iPad
Doodling is what I do. It's a way to make visible the randomness that's in my head - just drawing out a concept right when it comes to mind and scribbling on whatever I can find.
Hand lettering for a work in progress.
Back to the basics!
Inktober2018day14. Clock. I love time. I hate time. It goes too fast and there’s never enough of it. If I had more of it, I would be able to post every day for inktober. I wasn't going to participate this year, but after 4 or 5 days in, I figured if I did a very simple line drawing, like I started doing with the little box chicken character I could make every remaining day, but I just couldn't stop myself from going all out on some pieces. It's like I always want to add more. So maybe it’s going to be quality not quantity for me this year. Please enjoy.
A couple of pages from my 2017 art journal. Lots of random thoughts and doodles!
My Illustrated Alphabet letters were born out of a project in 2016. Each was drawn with pen & ink and each letter is illustrated with either an object, flora, fauna or wildlife that begins with that letter.
Over the course of a few months, I got to work with Good Karma For All on what you might consider a "passion project". The job consisted of freehand painting murals on every single (large) wall and hand-lettering inspirational quotes all over the inside and outside of the building.
It's not about waiting around for inspiration to strike, it's about showing up every single day -- and maybe something amazing happens that day, or maybe it doesnt...Regardless, Rise and Grind ♡
Moleskine spread. If I don't get it out on paper, my brain will explode and who wants that mess to deal with? Stay safe. Sketch regularly.
I have many forms of meditation, or at least a moment of total peace where mind is absolutely clear - and sketching is one of them!
Testing out the sketchbook app on my new HP spectre x360 :D
all you need is LOVE!
Rabbits thorns and moons. I usual don’t know where I’m going when my pen touches down. The illustration took me for a ride and I’m not gonna lie. I kinda enjoyed it. As it progressed, it felt like an album cover so why not?

I heard that Hannah Gadsby’s latest Netflix special was something to watch. And it was, even during the most difficult and revealing moments. I think it would be downright disrespectful for me to say that I can relate to this woman’s experience simply because I am a woman because in reality, I can’t. My life looks very little like hers. However, I do understand resilience and what rebuilding yourself looks like (at least on some level) and that is what resonated with me. I can also say that I gained a better perspective on how being honest can be really REALLY uncomfortable for people on the receiving end, yet is totally necessary if it means someone gets to live authentically.✌
