Monky-ish monkeys

These were the original monkeys that were drawn for the children's Valentine's collection I am working on. I think they look a little too much like bears. I need to adjust.

Valentine's of a Feather

And here are two bird characters that will be part of the children's Valentine collection I am working on. I am happy with how they turned out.

Friends and Family Children's Valentine collection

Here are my original sketches for a children's Valentine project I am working on. I need to make some adjustments so the monkeys and kangaroos don't look so much like bears.

My Zucchini Garden

Here is a recent drawing of the zucchini in my garden. The leaves are getting really big! We are having fun growing our own food.

coffee, dessert and the octopus ordeal

Will you join me for some pie? I have this vintage Danish-modern dish set as well as some delicious pie I made.

This octopus is pissed - he has a specific "comfortable zone" in which he allows others to approach him. These fish got a bit too close.

Recent Characters and Lettering

Here are a few recent drawings - a crane, some love you lettering, and shoes with socks.

I have been thinking of these "monstie" characters - each depicting a different emotion.

Gardening, Writing, Rejuvenating

Writing and gardening are kind of similar. I think with writing, you are nurturing your emotions and thoughts you maybe didn't know you had. These grow into your beliefs and how your world is shaped. Gardening takes nurturing and patience - and tending to it every day. Both of these activities bring about what can be rich and valuable products.

Me and Lisa

Me and my sister have nicknames for each other. I miss her.

I've got big feet and remembering the days when it was quieter

Here are a few drawings, integrated into my journaling. Been trying to write down my thoughts every day and draw from reality. I am valuing the warm days of summer, as I know they wont be here forever.
