Day 15

I totally forgot I made this yesterday and crashed before I could post!  It’s in the beginning stages.  I’m trying to find a good color for the figure.  And the background needs something too.

Day 7: Undecided

I decided to manipulate this image today.  It seemed like too much trouble to drag out my woodblock carving stuff so late.  I have two version and no idea which one to pursue.  I’ll have to think on it further.

Day 2: Playing Around

Today I wanted to play around with cutouts.  I tried several things and then found all these letters intended for scrapbooking (which I never kept up with).  Not sure it is done but it was fun to make at least!

Day 1: The end of a dry spell

This was my first wholehearted attempt at drawing for years.  Perhaps since I graduated from college in 2006.  I’ve dabbled mostly in digital media since then.  It felt good to complete such a simple project and be so happy with
