Healing Sketch #3: Pig & Bird

(Click on image for a closer look)

Since I only had time for the colour version of #1 yesterday, I'm counting that as #2. Which makes this #3.
I think I really like drawing flying pigs.

In other news, after all the heat, we had ourselves a lovely rainstorm yesterday, complete with wind, lightning & thunder.

#1 Leo

This guy makes me happy .

Healing Sketch #1 & #2: There's A Bird On My Head

Ball point pen on paper for The Healing Sketch.

I've been wanting to start doing a sketch per day for ages now, particularly after I came across the Healing Sketch project. Have finally started. I'm going to number these posts, hopefully that will inspire me to keep at it. The purpose of this exercise to me is to just get something down on paper everyday and start getting into the habit of sketching more often so as to make up for all the time I spend illustrating digitally.

This one, I call 'There's a Bird On My Head'.
Might add colour to it tomorrow.

Flickr group here.

Well, I added colour. Just playing, really.
Text reads "There's a bird on my head, who calls himself 'Fred'."
Couldn't resist.

Illustration Friday: Wrinkles

When grace is joined with wrinkles, it is adorable.
There is an unspeakable dawn in happy old age.

(Quote by Victor Hugo , French romantic Poet, Novelist and Dramatist, 1802-1885)

Based on the sketch below.

Also, Oatmeal-Date Cookies. By yours truly.
(Not as good as the cupcakes, but I'm not complaining)

Illustration Friday: Fail

Remember the girl in the illustration I did for last week's topic 'Save'? You know, the one who was trying to decide whether to splurge or save? Well, guess what?

She fails to convince herself not to splurge.
And doesn't seem too bummed out about said failure either.
See for yourself.

Had a lot of fun with this.
There are probably things that could be improved upon in the illo, but for now, I'm pretty ok with the way it's turned out.

What do you think?
Feedback/criticism would be much appreciated!

Illustration Friday: Save

Maybe she just ought to save to splurge?

*UPDATE: Fixed some stuff I wasn't happy with, added a lid to the savings jar, and oh yes, gave her some earrings. Adding those earrings just made my day. So pretty!!
