Earlier today I played around with drawing different kinds of fish based on what I did last night, but tonight decided to go back to the human species. I think tomorrow I will go whole hog and draw a complete body and not just a head. 🙂
From the retro book. Only one because it’s 4am. Yes, while technically it’s tomorrow, my days don’t end at midnight, so as long as I draw something before I go to bed, I’m still good. (But I do reset the dates on these posts so they show the (in)correct calendar day.)
More from the retro cartoon book. This time I actually drew on real paper.
So weird, my pencil felt awkward while drawing, and then when I went to erase the pencil marks after inking, the ink started smearing. WTF? Turns out I had been drawing on the inside front cover, not on one of the pieces of paper. It has a slick coding, so the ink wasn’t drying. I’m assuming a real artist would … Read More
Honestly, the only reason I’m continuing to put these up here is because if I ever become a famous artist these will be worth lots of money.

I thought if I drew 100 circles I would get really good at it. But I just got bored really fast and switched to ovals. And got bored with that. So then I just doodled. I’m pretty sure that tomorrow all of my artistic talent will burst forth in full bloom. Pretty sure.
I just decided to play around with some cartoon eyes tonight. I finally got a copy of the retro cartoon book that I had been missing for the last two or three eons, and I’m going to start going through that. Also, as suggested by Lesley, I’m going to be drawing a bunch of circles and ovals starting tomorrow. Of course, … Read More
Walking by the hospital the other day I saw these 5-petaled flowers and thought, “I should try to draw one.” Wish I had taken a picture or at least stopped walking long enough to really look at them. But if you stand back and squint at this picture, that’s what they looked like.
