bleargh. Unflattering self portrait in which I resemble a surly middle-aged man (next time I’ll leave my glasses on and deal with the difficulties instead of being lazy heh). White chalk pencil in black sketchbook.
# 26 – Drinking glass & sugar bag November 26, 2007
I found a black sketchbook today, and since I bought a “charcoal white” pencil the other day it all seemed destined for me to bring home & play with. I really need to stop drawing with the sketchbook flat on the table; the distortion in perspective really shits me lol

today’s last-minute effort is celebratory:
been playing with Scribbler the last couple of days – it’s hell fun, and some of the results are terrific. Original drawings are on flickr too, but they’re just frameworks to go nuts on with scribbler.
top of the coat/hatrack in my room that holds all the scarves, hats & shawls etc that I never wear. Texta on cartridge.
quick pencil sketch of my daughter’s hands. 2B on cartridge.
catching up November 19, 2007
been busy as trying to set up an ebay shop, so while I’ve done my drawings I haven’t made time to post them (tsk tsk). They’re all on flickr, but I’ll just post a couple that I don’t hate here.

big fat Staedtler Lumocolor marker in sketchbook. I wasn’t happy with how the drawing (of the seedpod again) was going, so I extemporised w seeds and a leaf then decided to play with backgrounds. Not a patch on Mandy’s great patterns; I’m just not naturally inclined to those neat straight lines, so I said buggerit & went off on random wobbly-patterned tangents. Looks rather a lot like the sort of doodles I used to do before I filled in spare moments with blogsurfing.
my 4.5 yo daughter’s decided to join the fun, btw. Cracks me up how serious she is about it, I should set up the video to capture the narration of every stroke. Here’s yesterday’s:
