Hop up, jump in!


The time I thought really hard about Handy Manny. Please don't sue me, Disney.

Kitty + sandwich

 

Oh Kitty, your mouth can not accommodate that sandwich!

Hey, Pear!

Late at night I had an idea involving fruit. I think it might be funny!


Watercolor

Ok, so after years of sort of aimlessly messing around I am trying to get hip to watercolor in a more serious way. I have swapped out all the semi-opaques and opaque colours in my palette for transparent ones, and I'm finding the results a lot more luminous! This was a gift for a friend and my first painting with the new colours. If you have any watercolor tips or tricks, send them my way why don't you!



I know you must be growing tired of these kinds of questions, but how on earth am I meant to get a watercolour to look good on the computer?! Scanning seems pretty hit or miss, and then even when I save for web all the colours look muddy once I get the image into my browser. Why why why? Help me, internet!

Words and Picutres at Meghan and Dee's blog

Guess what! Dee has made a new blog for his stories and my pictures are on it too! You can see all the good stuff at deeandmeghan.tumblr.com 

As I'm sure you can imagine I am really really jazzed!


As an aside, the most recent drawing I did for Dee's new story is my very first one with Derivan Liquid Pencil, which I talked about not so long ago here.  I got a lot of nice texture and it is so much more forgiving than ink! It was such a pleasure to work on and try something new.

Handtype

When I get blocked or frustrated with a drawing I like to draw words or letters. I really like doing type by hand, for projects or for fun, even if I am not a very wordy person.



I usually do it while I'm listening to something else, like a podcast or a video. That's how I end up with winners like "your blood controls everything."
