I saw a swap on swapbot.com for a postcard swap with hand colored postcards. I haven't swapped for quite a long time, but I was inspired to color a postcard & hope to join in on the swap. I colored this with colored pencils, and added a little sparkly gel pen to the red areas.
I hope to post more art soon. I have been dealing with a lot the past few years, but art is always great therapy & an escape from my troubles.

I selected 4 characters from page 116 and made 4 panel comics from each. I didn't add any extra details, but I had fun thinking about the characters and "what happens next?"
I am trying to draw every day and fill up my composition notebook - which gives me some happiness every time I look through it.

|Shy Octopus Comes to Visit|
This is a "Challenge Art-a-thon", which means that there is a list of challenges to do (themes and such), and points are awarded - so it is a little competitive.
The ATC above was drawn in pen and markers. I had a challenge to depict the words octopus, shy, and to visit on the project. I think it turned out pretty cute.
Next I made this 4" x 4" chunky page using some blind drawing of cats, acrylic paint, Indian ink pen, glitter gel pen, washi tape, paper and fabric flowers, and fibers.
I hope I am able to find the time to participate a bit more before the Art-a-thon ends.

Above is a "blind draw" exercise. You can access the list of prompts here, and there is a random number generator to select a few for you to try.
This is a skeleton drawn blind 3 times in yellow, then orange, and then blue marker.
We also had a scribble monster draw. Here are my scribbles:
And here are my monsters, matched with prompted sayings:
Looking forward to drawing jams and comic creation with this crazy group of #1 Groovers!
