Moleskine Doodle

I was just goofing around with fine liner pens when I doodled this page. 

This was done a week or two ago ... but it has been such a busy week that I am just now getting around to posting it.

I hope everyone is enjoying the long holiday weekend as much as I am. 

I finally have a bit of time to get caught up with the things that have slipped through my fingers lately.

Mess : Color Sequence

Another page from Mess: The Manual of Accidents and Mistakes.

1. Select a series of ten colors in any medium.
2. Fill in each square in this grid in some kind of regular sequence.
3. Insert a mistake somewhere.

I planned to create a grand and obvious mistake, however fate intervened.

When I was drawing the colored lines, I made a mistake in the color series.   Oops!   So I went with the accidental mistake as opposed to creating an intentional mistake.

Can you see my mistake?

Colorful Cat

I stumbled upon some line art of a sleeping cat at (royalty free public domain art), and thought it would be fun to color.

I used random colors, as I did when I colored the dog image last month in my copy of "Mess".

Sometimes it just feels good to do something without thinking too much about it.
