bones and pieces: still life... really still life. started up a colored pencil piece. This is the center bottom of the paper. My scanner is small folks... small but mighty. We shall see how this turns out. The other rendered piece has had another sitting but it now needs a bigger scanning bed in order to get the thing into the 'puter. So, Dana Point will have to wait for a posting.

Brown bagging it... after the grocery sack handles rip off, the grocery sacks are great for sketch book paper... the acid content is high, so don't expect this stuff to last for an eternity. But for doodles, and prelims... heck I just love it.

This is the finished character that I had been seeing in Lee Ann's fabric design. I had to finally render it out. It was so much fun to do. Thanks Lee Ann for letting me rip off your hard work for my own fun. You all really need to see her work, it's wonderful. Lee Ann's Blog is http://fiberlab.blogspot.com/
This is the source that I used for my character. The fabric that Lee Ann created was amazing to me as a pattern. My mind started to see images throughout it almost immediately. So, a year later I finally put actions to words and created the character from her design. It is the post that follows this one.

Dana Point, session 3: Finally got back and sat down to work on this piece last night. Not too long, just long enough to show some progress, whether good or bad, it's progress.

What would you do for a Klondike Bar? Some questions were never meant to be answered aloud... they are so much more effective when left to the imagination.
