Gentlemen Mustaches

Inspired by the latest Illustration Friday topic - moustache - I found some time in the wee hours of the morning to rework my gentlemen mustaches designs. I know that it's a trend that's been here for a while, but here's my interpretation with silly little characters.

Peek Into My Sketchbook

Random musings in my sketchbook these days. I haven't been able to spend much time playing around with all my baby duties in full swing. Just a few minutes - literally  - here and there. Lots of collaging and collecting of bits and pieces. Sometimes it's a creatively frustrating experience to not have the time. But ...

Peek Into My Sketchbook

Lots of random drawings in my sketchbook these days. Although I've been feeling a bit in limbo and creatively stuck when it comes to actually finishing any project, I'm realizing it's okay to just chill at times. No concrete"to-do" to accomplish at this point... just waiting around for baby to arrive :P

Peek Into My Sketchbook

This week has been really random... from simple drawings to exploration of forms within scribbles to attempts in color. My mind is definitely wandering. Still sketching a lot of birdies as well, but not sure how to continue onward to make them finished original pieces.

My default medium is to simply draw. No fuss, no muss, no color.

However, I've always loved loose, colorful, messy painting styles. It's so ...

Catching up again on Illustration Friday, so decided to combine this week's prompt Wings with last week's Myth. Le tme present my cute little flying piggy... a quick little sketch before bedtime. You know how people say "when pigs fly?!" I say, why not? At least in our imaginations and cute illustrations.

Illustration Friday: Ocean Edge New Glow

I fell behind with Illustration Friday for a couple of weeks as I've been quite occupied with getting work done before the baby arrives. Decided to do some catch up today with quick doodles. Nothing time consuming, but I did try my hand at digital coloring when I scanned them into the computer. For this week the prompt ...

Illustration Friday: Snow

LTieu_snowfamily

The prompt for Illustration Friday this week is snow - quite timely as the weather dropped below zero here in Tuscany, Italy. It's not normal at all, because normally it never snows in our town - that's what my husband assured me anyway. But the 3 winters I've been living here has resulted in 3 cold winters with ...
