drawing my own conclusions

A place to post art made with my own two hands, whether digital, or otherwise!

First photo is a snap of my take in oils on loriepagnozzi ‘s gorgeous photo of the Tulip Bake Shop! She takes some absolutely stunning photographs!
I had so much fun doing this, and have finally found a photographer who’s work I really connect with! There’s about a dozen more of these I’d like to do, so as the four canvasses I prepped yesterday are waiting for me to make a mark, you can expect more of these to roll out over the next couple weeks!

So, this is what I spent most of the past week doing…a friend fell in love with the Yarnicorns and asked if I thought I could make a mobile. I didn’t know, but said I’d try…
I guess the answer’s, “Yes!”
Yarnicorns are now up for sale (made to order) in my Etsy Shop!
Meet Lolli the Yarnicorn. I made her for Jack and I to give to Miss V for her fifth birthday (which is today!).
If you would like your very own Yarnicorn, message me here, or send me a convo over at my Etsy shop!
It’s my niece’s fifth birthday this week, and she aDOREs unicorns, so much so, that she asked her mom for one for her birthday (awwwww, I know!)…my SIL called and asked if I could paint one for V, so…
TA-DA! Unicorn!
Based super-heavily on one of my SIL’s favourite cartoons from childhood, “The Last Unicorn”.

Back to business as usual around here…no more Hiney. This is a fake tattoo I made, based super-heavily on this drawing by super-artisit, Liz Adams. I would love to have a real tattoo made of it (this one washed away too quickly!), but I would want it to retain that real watercolour look…any suggestions for excellent inkers in Ontario?

In conclusion…
This last page is my favourite…it took me a while to come up with this…’cause how does one finish up a story about a dog who’s just like all the other dogs (but not really), with the one thing that makes him stand out from the crowd?
Well, I’m pretty happy with how it all turned out!

Betcha can’t guess what that ONE thing is…answer coming tomorrow!

More Hiney…because, well…Hiney!

And, on it goes…remember when Hiney was just a doodle on a scrap of kraft paper? Ahhh, those were the days…

World Art Drop Day, Drop #3 of 3

"Froots" 6" x 7", ink and Tombow markersDropped outside and to the left of the front doors of the the beautiful old Court House in St. Thomas, ON

I’m really hoping this survived the deluge that came about an hour after I dropped…I was seriously beginning to think I may need to take a crash course on ark building!

World Art Drop Day, Drop #2 of 3

"Trees" 4" x 6" ink and watercolour
Drop made inside a pavilion at Pinafore Park, St. Thomas, ON

Interesting side-note: Two ladies were seated inside the pavilion as I made the drop, and it seemed (not that I was eavesdropping, or anything) as if they were helping one another learn their new smartphone…maybe one of them got curious and took it home? Hope so!

World Art Drop Day, Drop #1 of 3

"Gnomeo" 5"x7" ink and Tombow
Dropped in Port Stanley, Ontario

Hope someone gives him a happy, gnome-y home! Til then, at least he’s got a view of our harbour and is out of our rather unpredictable Southern Ontario weather!
