Canvas Art, ATCs and Sketchy Bits

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had a post up but I have been busy making art, I just couldn’t show much of it since it was being sent out as secret gifts to art friends. Whew! It’s over and I can share! Below are a couple of canvases done in acrylic, Jack from The Shining and The Dude from The Big Lebowski. So much fun making these and I seriously love The Big Lebowski, one of my fave movies of all time. I also made tons of ATCs and other little bits. Here are a few in marker and ink.

I also made lots of life drawings but the past couple of weeks, I’ve been turning them into silly doodles rather than proper figure drawings. We had a lovely, curvy model the other week and she become a beach beauty with polka dot bikini and swirly curled hair. The wonderful model we had this week became a king and voodoo master since voodoo was on the brain. The bottom left sketch with men holding their dolls is for a voodoo themed ATC swap. I just sketched out some silly ideas.

    Wow, great sketches! I love everything here. Sadly your canvases of Jack the The Dude didn't come through, so I couldn't enjoy those too. Happy Friday.

    Your drawing and painting skills are awesome and that is in the real meaning of the word.
    Like Valerie, I love the birdies, they are very cool and suave, especially the one on the left.
    I also really like the ladies with all their complex details and the fabulous backgrounds.
    And your film star paintings are super-skillful, recognisable at a glance.
    Great post.

    I totally love the curvy bikini babe with that fab hair! And I am so thrilled to own all three of those gorgeous lady ATCs. The birds in hats are darn awesome too.
