I had a busy summer. Who knew they got that busy when you are the parent, not the kid? Remember being bored?
Anyway, I have taken to drawing on my oldest’s snack bags. It’s too fun. I saw it online, so I won’t take credit for the idea, but it’s silly and he just loves it!
Robots are fun to draw. The panda kind of looks like the one on his snack bag. *sigh* He started kindergarten this year. I want to draw silly things for him as long as possible. The grahams are for tomorrow’s snack. The panda bag had apple slices in it today, if you are curious.
His school is close, so we walk everyday. Some days I have time to ride my bike or run, which is really awesome! The Dirty Dash is next weekend, so I’ll probably post some before and after pictures, as in clean vs dirty and also last year vs this year.
This weekend (starting tomorrow!) Is Bubonicon 45, the local sci-fi/fantasy convention. My friend and I have a booth, something we have talked about for a long time, finally realized. I am super excited and a little nervous but mostly excited! We’re already talking about next year. I’ll post more about the con after I get some good pictures. I will be bringing my sketch book to practice. It seems I found my art vein again, and it’s so fun.
One last thing for now, a sketch I did of my damie, Charlene:
I’m happy with how it came out, especially in color. She thinks it makes her look like a Disney character, which is awesome! I love Disney artwork,especially Marc Davis. That’s the kind of direction I’m aiming for. Simplistic, minimal’ bright colors, expressive…just artsy fartsy fun stuff, you know? It’s an amazing feeling to have the drawing look the way it does in my head. Who knows? Maybe I’ll have a comic on this blog someday.
