the something borrowed illustration... the orange paper for the portrait was a birthday gift. The origami papers were bogarted from my wife. The concept came from my friend Bryan ( and his flower scan technique with a tip of the hat from a more deco feel.

trying to work up a larger scale to see what would happen. Also working on a piece or two for competition in the upcoming weeks. We shall see. As always, if there are folks out there who would like to provide comments, you are welcome to do so.

more pages from a drawing book. Kraft paper is the finest. I just love it. So soft and yet hearty enough to stand up to repeated erasing. Simply forgiving. Pulled from photos of a drawing session from the drawing club. I really need to find a Saturday morning figure class. It is the perfect time for me to draw.

I am working from a tablet of pastel papers and kraft papers without binding. It is freeing in some respects (being left handed). I love not being chewed by spiral binding. But I miss not having a collected stash for my drawings other than a box. Well, it is in a folder and well protected until some solution can be found. But until the paper is used, this is quite an experiment.
pages from a drawing book
right now i don't have a sketch/drawing book (bound) of any sorts. I got a gracious gift from a friend at work of pastel papers and acid free kraft papers. But I have been lax at scanning any of the drawings. so I will do so here and try to keep up the scanning so as to not bog down the 'puter for the rest of the family.

Working through phobias can have benefits on an occasion such as a creative outlet. Drawergeeks for next week is ... clowns. So, have 2 irons in the fire right now. This is the first sketch. Possibly to take to a digital finish. The second is much less horrific, more subtle. Hopefully it will show up prior to the beginning of the week. We shall see. The idea of "killer clowns, evil clowns" didn't seem to really fit my mood. But instead of having the clown as predator, perhaps have clown as prey? Hmmmm, now that has possibilities. So, I title this piece "In one ear and out the other".
