No Direction

Fleeing to Nowhere

A pen and ink I was working on. I let it go topsy turvy. I really couldn't orient it in any direction. 
And maybe there's more to it. I'm not sure yet.

Bending over backwards in Google land

After having become googlified, I totally lost control of this blog!!!! What a mess. I was really bending over backwards, as well as turning myself inside out to figure out how to fix a stupiiiiid mistake I made: canceling the email this blog was connected. Somehow, magically it fixed itself today after I went once again thru countless permutations of my email address.
Hey, I didn't make this sculpture, but it certainly expressed how I feel. Except...now I'm happy to have it back.

This week's Illustration Friday topic is "Urban". I'm amazed at the beautiful work some people turn in. They must have had a piece on hand on that specific topic.
My work here is based on a drawing I did many years ago...but of course, I can't find it. Pen and ink and a little gouache.

This week's Illustration Friday topic is EGG.
I did this in straight watercolor and pen.
Something sad is going on. But what?

This week's Illustration Friday topic is Swim. This piece is in acrylic gouache. I tried putting down an orange base coat and painting over it. It's not my usual style so it was  a bit of a challenge to get the right balance of delineated forms and the sort of flat effect that I wanted.

Illustration Friday.

Lately, I've been doing fun stuff. This is an illustration for a site called Illustration Friday.
Every week they have a different subject and this one is for "Eyeglasses"
I"m enjoying doing little sketches and not agonizing about the results. Also, it's fun to change the colors in Photoshop!

I've been having fun with the Art House Co-Op projects. This one was an infinite scroll on the subject of monsters. To see the whole scroll go to The Art-House Project's Tumblir page
What made this fun was changing my entire color scheme in Photoshop.
