I need some rechargeable batteries for my wacom creative stylus. These sketches were finished without any pressure sensitivity, so it felt like I was using a blunt instrument. You know what doesn’t run out of batteries? A PENCIL. Grrrr.
Still…despite how much I love traditional media, drawing on the iPad has an amazing benefit. It was VERY nice to be able to lean back on the couch in a soothingly dim room. I could draw comfortably and still see my screen. I really enjoyed that. It makes drawing after a draining day a bit easier. Until of course the batteries died, I ran out of spares, and the stylus was no better than using my finger.
Now for more hair bows! Spending time figuring out how I want them to sit on my characters head. Also showing you the photo that got me obsessed.
I am now a “regular” at Denny’s. The waitress automatically brought me a black coffee and a glass of water as soon as I sat down. As I sketched I was left alone, except for food/coffee/water refills, and I was happy. These two fellows inspired my sketches today. One was quite serious, and the other quite jolly.

I missed out on posting anything this weekend, but I had a good reason. I was working on the Art Lab all weekend. As soon as we woke up, until we collapsed in the evening, it was all about working on that space. It has become a much bigger project than originally planned, but it is also turning out rather exciting.
I’m adding some instagram photos of The Art Lab’s process after the sketches.
Here is my character, Arabus, in the process of reviving a Muertita.
I plucked this flower off a bush to be able to take it to a table and sketch it. It wilted so quickly, I felt bad. It had been so happy on the bush, being alive and all that, hoping for bees to come by and compliment it whilst digging around for pollen. I will start taking photos instead.
