IF: Wings

I remain mum on the topic...of Cupid & Valentines...not wings. Those are pretty cool. I wouldn't mind a pair or two, well glued, and not capable of carrying me too close to the sun.

IF: Myth

Moose are mythical. No??? Well, they bugle like a Beluga and can be heard from six miles away. That's epic, in my book. Plus, they are fun to draw.
It's a myth that this drawing thing is easy, especially when one tries to distill complex creatures down to their simplest shapes.  Especially Jackalopes!!!!!!!  

But I've logged another 5-7 hours towards my 10,000 hour goal.
Happy creating!

IF: Ocean

One of my goals for 2013 is to sketch daily.  I also want to participate more often with Illustration Friday. So, each week my daily sketches will revolve around the IF theme.  I sense that there is an ocean of possibility in this method.

On Deck...

Happy 2013, a bit belatedly!!!!
Are you excited????? I am.  More excited than I have been in decades.  I don't know why, but I am take'n this love'n feel'n and running with it.
Maybe it is because this year instead of resolutions I set goals...and then made baby step goals.
Maybe it is simply because 2012 is behind me.

Here are just a few things on deck for first quarter of 2013:
1. Respond to the lovely Liebster Award given to me by Nina Crittenden
2. Complete two commission pieces (see sketches above)
3. Enter the 2013 SCBWI-Carolinas art contest (deadline Feb. 28th)
4. Mail out promo cards in March.
5. AND (drum roll) complete steps 1-4 in the "Unofficial 2013 #PBDummy Challenge"
6. Sketch SOMETHING daily.
7. Paint weekly.

An amazing thing happens when you pray for direction, then write down what you hear...the tools you need to get the job done begin to appear.

So what is on deck for you this quarter??? I'd love to hear.  We are all in this together.
