Odd Botanicals 2
Some tiger shark love.
Had a lot of fun making some birthday cards for family members. Quick doodles with micron markers and watercolor.
Another doodle from Inktober that I turned into a logo or small illustration. This guy is happy even though he's missing his head.
This line from the Stephin Merritt episode of the 'She's A Talker' podcast (referring to Stephen Sondheim plot-lines) got my imagination ticking in overdrive
Strange Creature has a Flower for you. Do you take it?
This cool frog monster is a master inventor. Here he is riding through town on his homemade motorcycle.
Quickly drawn freehand pattern study in red.
Sunday night whale songs.
As another Wednesday winds down, my creativity has other ideas...
This piece is inspired by Mental Health Awareness Week that’s just left us.
Belated and as cryptic as things might be (as usual) here in Bleu’s world, better late to the party than never right?
Narwhals it seems, and I’m sure I’ve said this before, are a perfect remedy for art blocks I'd say. Wasn’t going anywhere last night, that is until I gave things another go and this fellow here saved the day!
We weren’t getting enough social interaction in our quarantined space, so we decided to make another person, coming soon! This is my family as cats.
New sketchbook time!
Had to throw in a shark. No idea why, just did :)
Nye Beach archway here in sunny Newport, Oregon. Here are some Nye Beach regulars to greet you, give you flowers, and take you to lunch. Welcome!
I think I've used this festive hangover as an excuse for (what seems) a little too long now, hahahaha! Back to business...
Merry Xmas from Santa
Hello All, Hope everyone is keeping well......I started another ' Lockdown' doodle this week. Working on Mixed Media paper with Pen & Ink and Aqua spectrum Noir pens. The Spectrum pens are really chunky and take a while to get used to handling , but they are very useful for colour blocking larger areas and the colours are intense. I've been using these all year now and love them. The Flamingo Garden Doodle , I turned into a repeat pattern for my collection of Printed Ladies accessories for my new website which I'm working hard on and hoping to Launch very soon. :-)
We've all had times when the Coronavirus Quarantine Lockdown Insanity drove us to pour our emotions into our artwork. I mean, that's what we do, as artists! "Pensive Mother" was the first piece, created when I was feeling super low, lonely (despite my husband and daughter being home and well) - and scared for my daughter's (and the world's) future. After posting the image in a few Facebook groups, and people falling in love with her, the next day I created "Joyful Day". It was the emotion created with these pieces that guided their development. And I couldn't have asked for a better result!
I wanted it to look like the chalkboard menus in quirky cafes. I drew the image with a Blackwing pencil, scanned it into Photoshop, inverted, then applied the colors.
Day 5 word was build. Small 3x3 pen and ink drawing.
New year, same old stuff from me folks.
A handful of Brit flicks have been showing up on Disney+ lately, and one of them I watched recently had Luke Perry of all folks in it... the film in question is called ‘The Beat Beneath My Feet’ in case you’re curious.
In all seriousness though, British films with American actors in them as a lead/central character will forever and always fascinate me, much like Luke Perry’s birth name did! Rest well good sir and thanks for everything.
Sharks in questioning waters.
Had to squeeze in some drawing earlier on yesterday before editing the photos I captured at Friday night’s gig with Ozric Tentacles and friends. Fantastic stuff that was!
