Illustration Friday: Launch (Rooster Sketch)

Illustration Friday: Launch (Rooster Sketch)

And I’m back from my art hiatus with an Illustration Friday!!

Really, I have been so busy with web design stuff, that I haven’t taken the time to draw, and that’s just sad.  So I’ve had this robotic rooster in my head (he’s eventually going to be a big piece) and here’s my first attempt at a sketch of him.  Doesn’t it look like he’s just launched a football into the air?… [ KEEP READING ]

Love this upcycled art sculpture!

I spotted this at Eric Barclay’s blog last week, and figured you guys would love it…  His art is always fun, but I thought this one deserved extra mention for it’s creativity :)

Sketchbook Tuesday

Sketchbook Tuesday

I did this little sketch the other evening while The Boy was in Kung Fu class.  I liked it, so I inked it up last night.  Kinda cute, huh?  Somewhat inspired by The Far Side, and somewhat by the accidental results of my brother’s mouse-based science fair project, back in the day….
