Hoo's There

I love to doodle on printed paper ... whether it's scrapbook papers, book pages or random found bits of paper.

This owl was doodled on scrapbook papers - the eyes and beak were cut from one printed design paper and glued to a blue printed paper.  I then doodled with a black sharpie pen and a superfine Indian ink PITT artist pen.

This owl will most likely be glued into one of my sketchbooks.

Scribble Doodles : Halloween

I am a bit obsessed with the Scribble Doodles books.  I stumbled onto the Christmas edition last year on clearance at my local bookstore, and was immediately filled with ideas as I flipped through the pages.

I have located 6 different editions of Scribble Doodles.  Each book is 8-1/4" x 11" and about 256 pages.  (.. and yes, they are children's books.)

Each page has a prompt or a partially drawn image for you to complete.  (Some of which can be rather hilarious when given the right twist.)

I am working in the Scribble Doodles Halloween book right now and have finally finished a page:

Here is the BEFORE image:
I think I will have lots of fun filling up these books!

Stay tuned for more pages from my Scribble Doodles books.

Vampire Girl

Another page from my moleskine notebook.
A sweet vampire girl holding a tiny bat. She dreams of flying, but has scrawny little wings and cannot yet fly.

The page features printed scrapbook papers - which I cut into a little frame shape, a book page with some russian text on it, acrylic paint, Indian ink, and gel pen - coated with polyurethane varnish.
