Spooks.

“In traditional belief and fiction, a ghost (sometimes known as a spectre (British English) or specter (American English), phantom, apparition or spook) is the soul or spirit of a dead person or animal that can appear, in visible form or other manifestation, to the living.” (wikipedia)

Happy New Year!

Well 2014 is almost over and I’ve finally gotten around to doing some scanning. I have so much I’m not even scanning everything today. I’m not even sure what kind of order or how or what I should share.

I’m not going to do an overview of the year, instead I’m going to share a bunch of skulls because I think besides naked people thats what I made the most art of this year. I pretty much drew the same skull over and over again.

Playing around with watercolour and charcoal.

Pencil was probably my medium of choice for 2014.

loserskull

I bought some pitt pens a little while ago and they’re pretty much my new favourite thing.

I mean besides drawing skulls. Though this rainbow pencil is pretty cool too.

And sometimes I’m funny. ha. Or I try to be.

Ok thats enough for now. I’ve got to get dressed to go to a New Year’s Eve party.

Drawing with Ink

I finally got around to scanning these drawings from just over a month ago. We were instructed to draw some natural objects using ink. I don’t really have a lot to say about these, I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Notice the little paw and claw prints? My cat decided she’d help with this one.  Feathers drawn with ink using feathers.

This was a tree that was in bloom near my bus stop. I tried my best to capture the pink blossoms.

And the little cat prints return on this one as well. Lizzy just wants to make art too.

I like ink, its unpredictable and fun to work with because of that.
