What happens when artists sit down to make art?

I made a couple of comic panels for a swap on IllustratedATCs with the theme of “What happens when artists sit down to make art.” Lots of fun with this swap and I wish I could have made many more panels! You can click the panels so they’re large enough to read.

I have to make some faces this weekend to catch up on my 29 faces challenge! I’m only at #12. I was ahead there for a few days. Ah well! I have to catch up on blog commenting too. I haven’t had much free time to go on a blog roll and see what everyone else is doing with the challenge.

    So funny and true (not the part where the zombie strangles the artist!). I have those cursing phases almost every time (fortunately my little daughter is deep asleep when that happens!)! 😀
    Happy Valentine's Day!

    you are really creating lots of great art-no wonder you're so busy. Your illustrated panel ATCS are so fun and I just LOVE your "valentine" painting! Happy PPF and Valentine's Day!

    Great work!!! I have to show your pirates and zombies to my sons – they'll love them even more than I do 😉
    (BTW – do you use Illustrator or Photoshop to turn your drawings into line art?!)
    Thanks for stopping by earlier!
    Happy PPF,

    Happy Valentines day!

    Hugs Giggles

    Brilliiant comic panels. "Stupid smudged ink" – yes, all the time, or the dreaded sudden shaky hand.
    Love your sweet and dark couple each with the gift of flowers.

    Ok it's only 7am here, so won't pour a wine yet, oh my, yes, I wondered why a glass of wine often appears out of nowhere, right after a f%@k up LOL… Love EVERY damn bit of art here – brilliant 🙂

    I have fallen down HARD on the blog visiting. I think my face isn't even technically in the dirt anymore; it's several inches below. I think I hear moles scratching around. Help!

    I am so happy you posted your comic pages here! And I love all of your robots and pirates! I need to do a sheet like that so that I can catch up! (And get away from the moles!)

    Your artwork is always so unusual, original and creative, and it's a pleasure to visit and feast on your paintings and drawings. My sister and I used to draw comic-strip cartoon pages when we were little, and so I have a great affection for this style. Yours are so expertly done.

    Haha! The comics are great! I can identify with the first one (although I don't drink, so it's the chocolate supply). The robots and pirates look cool and the Valentines one is very sweet (and awesome).
    Have a great day!
