I signed up for 30 Days Of Get Your Art On with Traci Bunker and I am having to learn this new way of using blogger.  Why do they have to keep changing things?????  
I don't know how to put this on the sidebar so it will have to go here for now.  Maybe I will figure it out later.

This guy below is a Cranky Bird that was inspired from Carla Sonheim's new book Imaginary Animals.  She is doing some special things on her blog right now to launch her book and Dar Hosta who draws these Cranky Birds has done a tutorial on her blog.  Chick it out, she has a great sense of humor.

The elephant below (yes, it is an elephant) is inspired by Carla Sonheim's Imaginary Animals and there is a tutorial for it on The Sketchbook Challenge blog.  Sorry I haven't got the address for these blogs, I'm just getting back into blogging after a year and as I said it has all changed so it will take me a while to get the hang of it.

Both of the animals were done on my calendar for September that I started last year and didn't complete so I  am completing it this year.  Below is another calendar I am doing of Illuminated numbers.  It is also an art journal.

So that is what I did for my one hour today.  I really enjoyed myself and found it relaxing.  The two animals were fun because they helped me to be more relaxed and connect with my playful side that needs a lot of encouragement.  I am far too serious with my art.


  1. Thought I had lost you! Lovely to see your art. Hope all is well. Sorry I have not been intouch.

  2. I love all of these sketches. What fun. Did you complete your 30 days?
    I am excited to hear you are taking the lettering class, hope to see you soon.
