Jingle bells

Needing to brush up on my prisma color skills, I employed a jingle bell to
aid me in drawing a self portrait. I'm the cute one on the jingle bell!
... i'm the only one on the jingle bell. Either way, enjoy, and slow
down this Christmas to revel in the season of Advent.
Medium: prisma colors


I decided to draw whatever popped into my mind - always a good start for something whimsical and fun.
I found a pillow head fellow, all gussied up and about to open a door. I really truly want to know what is behind that door! Any why he has a pillow- what's that about? An other picture is in order, methinks, even for my own curiosity's sake.

Cloudy with a chance of birthday

I woke up with this in my head. I'm not sure why. I'm turning a small milestone birthday this Sunday, so perhaps that has something to do with it. All the same, I thought it was rather funny, if in a slightly melancholic and poignant way...

Winter is coming

Sort of. I live in San Diego. I was chilly last night and thought it was somewhere
in the forties. I come inside and look and it's 60 degrees. I'm either a wuss when it comes to the cold(highly likely), or the shorter days have a profound psychological effect on the body and it's heat regulation...
Either way, the occasion calls for cartoonage. Enjoy.

I visited Arizona last weekend. It was fun. I had a couple of cartoons in my head
afterward. For all of you Americans who did not watch a staggering amount of Monty
Python in your formative years, "peckish" also means "hungry."

Hand it to you

I read recently that it's good to draw hands (and redraw and draw some more). I have a hard time just putzing about with random hands, so here's a start at drawing hands. I learned that I am seriously lacking in hand-drawing skills. This is not my first attempt at drawing this...
BTW Ben is my smart, funny, and dashingly handsome husband. I dedicate my second attempt of drawing this to you. (i hope that's really how you sign 'love')
