Crafters Devotional

A few months ago I was googling my name under BOOKS to see if my name showed up with the Urban Sketchers book. Well it did but I also found out my mermaid post was used in the book Crafter's Devotional - 365 Days of Tips, Tricks, and Techniques for unlocking your Creative Spirit by Barbara R. Call. On day 285 she suggests using mythical creatures in your art. My mermaid creature was used after making a tuna sandwich. I realized I COULD NEVER be a mermaid.

Figure Friday

I took down my drawer of conte, charcoal and pastel crayons to create this page of figures drawn from my favorite practice site, Posemaniacs.  I had already glued a sketch of my friend right in the center so I had to work around him.The oil crayons were hard to work with they are thick and wide. My favorite was the conte pencil and of course my technical pen. 8 x 11.5 inches in a large watercolor moleskine. BE YOURSELF.
