Gong Hei Fat Choy

….two days late but celebrations are taking place all week

It’s the Year of the Pig on the Chinese calendar and celebrations are in full swing all over the world where Chinese communities exist. To honour the Earth Pig I decided to create a collage over a quick sketch of a pig I had done last year. I actually love drawing pigs and this one was one of my practice pigs. There are actually other ‘pig parts’ on this page as well but I chose to cover them with some printed transparency film.

Do Dogs Wear Bow Ties?

,,,,”it’s a dog with a bow tie but dogs don’t wear bow ties”

This was today’s comment for today’s cartoon drawing from our granddaughter to which my husband replied….”dogs do wear bow ties…they love bow ties and Papa loves bow ties too……but Bill the Cat, not so much.”

Enjoy!dog15

“Is it a Choo Choo Squirrel?”

…..a what????

I find it fascinating what goes through the mind of a three year old. This drawing was meant to be a cat but I guess if you look at the background as being a tail it could be a squirrel. Where the ‘Choo, Choo’ comes in is beyond me.

There are days when I feel just like this ‘cat’; confused and bewildered by the state of the world.

Having Fun With Collage

….turns out I have another week before the next lesson

I thought I would never be able to get all eight of my collage pages that Carla Sonheim assigned us to do before the next lesson. Well there was no new lesson this week because the lessons happen every two weeks. That’s probably why we’re given so many projects to do. There is, however, no pressure to do all of them but since I have the time now I went back to my sketch book and completed my fourth piece.

This one started with a stone monolith and I added an owl face from an Inuit artist named Laakuluk Williamson Bathory. I didn’t know where to go with this piece until I found a picture of a large snake. I decided to make this one fun so I added some speech balloons and small critters reacting to the snake.fullsizeoutput-7627
