Illustration Friday: CRACKED

Meant to post this days ago. Just a little drawing I did, inspired by this week's theme. :)

Illustration Friday: CONTAGIOUS

It would be nice if I could post to my blog everyday, but I'm lucky if I get something new up once a week. Thankfully, I've been getting better with free-time doodling, due in part to the inspiring Dani Jones and her amazing ability to record and share almost everything she does.

Today she posted to her own doodle blog, Dani 's Doodles, which gave me the bug… and since i would never draw a robot of my own accord, I thought it a pretty appropriate post for this week's theme. :) Of course, my little robot doesn't seem to be invading anything - he seems more curious than anything else.

Illustration Friday: PARADE

You ever notice that parades are a lot of standing around and creating a big mess? They're no fun unless you're actually IN one, doing something... in my opinion. And maybe for the ants and insects that reap the garbage benefits.

In an effort just to doodle and draw more, just cuz, I post my image for Parade: a rough sketch, with pen & gouache. I'm not really paying attention to quality yet, I'm just trying to draw more. I mean, I draw almost everyday for work. But that's work. I find that I'm losing the ability to create anything of my own, out of my head - which used to be my strong suit, and it's really been getting me down. Haven't really painted in years - so this is just to experiment and try something a little different for a change.

I also journaled a little parade memory above this image in my sketchbook, it's actually kind of a good one - something I had completely forgotten about until I went to write something. Ironically, this picture doesn't really go with it.
