Steampunk Sketchy’s

It has been a while since I attended a Dr. Sketchy‘s Anti Art School in Philadelphia. And what an event it was today! The costumes were gorgeous at the steam punk themed Dr. Sketchy’s. Our lovely models were Lulu Lollipop and Ginger Leigh of the burlesque Peek-A-Boo Revue, with special guest posings by Count Scotchula.

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.

Sketchy Dames

I try to keep my sketchbook exclusively to drawings from life, but sometimes pretty women just slip out.

Sketchbook Weekend

Sometimes sketchbook Saturday happens on Sunday. Both of these drawings were made in a parking lot while waiting to meet up with friends for dinner. Different parking lots, different friends, different restaurants.

Yesterday, I recieved two new sketchbooks from my awesome supplier.  Can’t wait to fill them.

Trip to Disney World, Part 1

This past winter my family and I spent a week in Florida. Instead of taking photographs, I purchased one of the autograph books popular in the Disney theme parks. I filled it with drawings instead of character signatures.

I’m going to devote a few days worth of blog posts to this tiny book.  Here are some select drawings.

Where We Will Live

This was drawn as Kevin interviewed for his new job. It was so quiet I could hear the snow fall. There were no street lights or telephone poles.
