Sketchbook Splash

It’s Sketchbook Saturday and, as you can see, my sketchbook has gained a lot more color lately.

The following was doodled while watching Peter S. Beagle’s The Last Unicorn.

Hello November

Thanksgiving is fast approaching, and somehow I have not managed to update my blog yet this month. I am sorry. Here is a page from my sketchbook to break my artistic silence.

Featured above is my purse, a stapler, and a calculator depicted in pen, marker, and colored pencil. Sketchbook Saturday lives!

Also, I’ve recently revamped my Etsy shop for the upcoming holiday season. For the first time I am selling prints of my plein air paintings. Take a look.

Vinyl Toys

Lets celebrate this Sketchbook Saturday with a couple ink drawings of vinyl toys.

Welcome Spring!

It is the first day of spring. It also happens to be Sketchbook Saturday.

Very close to my home is a big, beautiful bird reserve. No one appreciates the arrival of springtime quite as much as our feathered friends. The gestures below were drawn from live birds, which are found in abundance in my area. There is a hen, a rooster, some geese, and a large, black, duck-like bird with a bumpy beak.

Happy Spring! Happy Sketching!

Second Majesty

Last night, I went to the Gypsy Bar in Atlantic City to see Second Majesty perform. Here are the few sketches from the event. Enjoy the rest of your Sketchbook Saturday!

Snowed In

This week, I have no excuse not to participate in Sketchbook Saturday. The snow has trapped me in my home.

Here is a drawing of an old sneaker overlapping the box for Left 4 Dead 2. It is drawn with ball point pen on Stonehenge paper in my lovely Parkside Harmony sketchbook.

Back From the Dead,

it is sketchbook Saturday! This is an older sketch of a patchwork zombie playing with a pair of yo-yo’s. At that point muscle memory is all you got, you know?
