Day 9 – work in progress

There’s nothing like a shift or two at work to make me fall behind in documenting my process.  The angel is a bit green because she is covered in moss.

Little Black Cloud Earrings

Day 5: Little Black Clouds

Another quick “shop the stash” hit today. When I first saw these gray shell teardrops, they reminded me of rain. I thought they’d look great as cascade-style earrings (you know, the kind that feature several teardrops or briolettes attached along

Had to do this one on the quick! Yesterday, I mentioned having a problem with follow-through when it comes to all those great ideas that come while you’re in the supply shops, running your hands over everything. I bring stuff

Day 4

I wanted a moving gif to use as a signature so I made this using GIMP.  I realise now that it’s probably a bit large to use but it’s still a thing that I made today.

T-a-D #3 (okay, technically it’s my first post)

Getting a late start to Thing-a-Day this year, but it’s similar to what I was doing last year.  This year, I’m trying to hone my box modeling skillz using Blender (which I just love; it’s easy to use *and* free)

Just an ink and watercolour silhouette.  4×6 inches on watercolour paper. Time escapes me and I found myself working today when I thought I’d have time to play.

Day 2: More Modest Ambitions

After the last adventure, I thought I’d try something a little more modest. Besides, I had to do this in the wee hours of the beginning of Day 2 because I’m going to be otherwise occupied tomorrow/today/while the normal people

Day 1: Frick-Frackin’ Wire Wrappin’

Oh, wire wrapping, how you confound me. I’m pretty handy with most jewelry techniques. I can zone out and just meditate while I work, for the most part. But for some reason, elaborate wire wrapping just eludes me. I have

It’s been a year since the last Thing A Day and I’m hoping that this time I will be a little more organised.  I’m aiming to make one drawing a day for the entire month but there’s some wiggle room

  It’s a little watercolour sketch of hamster for a friend.  I’ll finish it later. Thing A Day is something that I joined at the last minute and I enjoyed it a lot.  Next year I’ll be prepared with materials
