I don’t think I’ve posted the mixed media lady above already. Maybe I have!? Anyway, it’s a piece from this summer in watercolour, coloured pencils and whatever else I had on my desk at the time. If anyone wants it, send me a note and it’s yours! Don’t be shy. It’s still freebie month and I haven’t had time to sort out the free art doll templates I promised. It’s been such a crazy, busy work week for me and I have so many art pieces to make this weekend. The callus on my middle finger is actually hurting. Artists can have work related injuries! LOL.
What I’m working on
I’m still working on lots of game art and have some ugly goblins and orcs on the go. I love drawing the ugly stuff, especially this close to Halloween. Ok…. it’s not that close, I know, but we’re getting there and anyone who knows me well, knows it’s my favourite holiday of the year. I so want to dress up this year but I don’t really have anywhere to go! I’m past the Halloween party age so I’m basically limited to dressing up and handing out candy on the 31st. The thing is, I think my ugly female Darth Maul might terrify the younger kids who come to my door. I might have to rethink this.
I’m also working on some bookmarks to swap with art friends over on IllustratedATCs.com. I thought a set of book lovers loving books would be fun to make. I’ll finish them up this weekend with some colourful watercolours and back them with a sturdy cardstock.
October Mash Up!
I love October for both Inktober and for Drawlloween! So much fun for artists. For Inktober, the idea is to draw one prompt each day in pen and ink. For Drawlloween, you also draw a (Halloween inspired) daily prompt but in any medium. It’s pretty hard to finish one of these daily drawing months in full, let alone two, so I’m going for a mash-up. I might try combining the daily prompts in pen and ink. Works for me! Hope some of you will jump in and join us. It’s unlikely I’ll be able to complete this every day but it’s fun to dive in when I can.
This month, I’m blogging along with Effy. Join us!
