It just hit me that fall comes tomorrow! So today I'm in my studio *frantically* brainstorming an animation to say goodbye to summer & welcome autumn! I'll admit, I'm still a bit stumped on what to make but hopefully something will hit me! So far I just have a pile of leaves. If I can pull this off I'll be posting an animation in the morning!
So Sad, A Group, Spam, Effort, Stupid, Thankful, Content
Over Labor Day weekend I did a labor of love! I got out of my comfort of colored pencils and painted this pet portrait for a dear friend! Granted it’s no Van Gogh, but it was in fact him who said “If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” I'm glad I ignored the doubting voices in my head & took the time to create! #art #painting #dog #puppy #portrait #dogportrait #terrier #terriermix
Consider this a manaTEASE of my next animation! I'm filling up an ocean full of sea creatures that I'll bring to life later this week. First, I want you to have a say in this! Which of your favorite fishy friends should I include? Bring on the suggestions, I want us to make this one a real splash! #manatee #drawing #art #ocean #fish #sealife #underthesea #underwater
I have spent many days strolling the streets of Brooklyn and often find myself back at this spot. With a striking view of the Manhattan bridge, this street in Dumbo is one of my all time favorites! I simply had to draw it to add it to my growing collection of travel postcards! Hope you enjoy this view as much as I do :) #art #drawing #sketch #postcard #travel #instatravel #brooklyn #manhattan #bridge #manhattanbridge #architecture #newyork #ny #nyc
Things are coming together for my next animation featuring all the things we love about New York! Many of you suggested that I should include coffee & bagels, so I put my pencils to work & brewed up this iconic New York cup of joe! Now I'm going to take a coffee break & enjoy this macchiato before drawing more of your awesome suggestions! If all goes as planned I'll be posting the final animation this weekend. Stay tuned!
I've packed my bags, camera and colored pencils to spend the springtime in New York! I'm looking forward to the creative inspiration of the city & fun collaborations that are in store! Stay tuned to come along in the adventure!
