Not a bird, just a girl. One day left.
Day 29. Samantha Hahn. Girl with face fabric bikini. December 29, 2007
I’m going to make a border of dice and cards etc. to go around one of these. What do you think of the drawings? I’m not sure about them. They were fun though.
Another ink drawing. I thought for sure the pen would have run out of ink by now, maybe I’ll enough for the final day!
Another attempt at drawing Rosa while she was drawing her mom. “Please, please, pleeeeease can we draw with your markers?” Rosa asked today. She only loves me for my Stabilo mini-pens.
Sorry, didn’t mean to go out with a pffft! there. December 3, 2006
I’m on London time. In the last few days before leaving for vacation, I did do some drawings, but I didn’t have time to photograph or post them. And then I spent half a day travelling, and most of the first day in London shopping (Elisabeth! Monsoon! It’s overwhelming!), and then . . . Well, finally, here’s the backlog:
I’m not generally an organized person, but I’ve gotten pretty good at packing for trips. I drew this on Wednesday, after I had laid out the clothes I intended to bring to Europe. I used a new set of twelve Stabilo point 88 mini Fineliners. There’s not a wide color range in the twelve-pack, but they’re cute little pens. Very small. Easy to pack.
I know it’s so over to be drawing pumpkins now, after Thanksgiving, but there are these two tiny squashes that have been sitting on top of the coffeemaker at work for a couple of weeks, and I decided the white one was kind of interesting. It’s not half as yellow as I’ve drawn it.
I drew this for the Invention topic at Illustration Friday, but then I was too late in posting it. I think the staple remover is an elegant little invention.
Stellou reading the paper
Some people like to spread the newspaper all over the carpet and crouch on the floor to read it.
Some other people prefer to sit on the couch with their legs crossed, reading the Internets on a laptop PC.
. . .
That is all. I mean, I brought my drawing kit to Europe, and I will keep drawing as often as I can, but DrawMo! is, sadly, over, so I guess I won’t post them here again until next year. It’s been fun!
Does anybody else have an opinion on what should happen on this blog between now and next November? I mean, should we keep posting links and exercises and stuff? Or are you just over it?
. . .
Aaaaaaaah!! I’m in London!!!!
32nd and Adams November 30, 2006
11/29/06: A business front in San Diego’s North Park area. A couple of problems with symmetry, or lack thereof, but the arch above the door came out nicely.
11/29/06: Today was crazy busy at work. I didn’t get home until after 9 — and I hadn’t done a drawing. So I put my hand into a box of my photos and pulled out a picture I’d taken of horses in Grass Valley, CA. The drawing was so deadly dull, I threw some watercolor on, and liked it better.
