The Sketchbook Project: First Pages

I have completed the first 2 pages of my sketchbook with the exception of a little round sign on the inside cover that I intend to fill out once my book has been completed and is otherwise ready to mail. May this image bring you as much joy as it does to me:

Daily Art: A Really Rough Sketch

May 21st:

This was an extremely quick sketch that I did just before bed to get an idea down on paper. I had a vision of a creature-version of mother nature where her entire abdomen is shaped like one of those woven, hanging bird nests. I haven't really nailed down the rest of the concept except that her limbs should be somewhat spindly in contrast to the rounded abdomen.

Daily Art: Card #14

April 30th:

This is another playing card that I am supremely happy with. Also, I finally figured out which type of ink works best on the playing card surface: Prismacolor marker ink. Who would have thought it? I certainly would not have imagined that Prismacolor markers would ever have worked better than India ink or permanent Sharpie on such a slick surface, but it absolutely does...

Daily Art: Little Blue Mushroom

April 27th:

I drew a mushroom. I really wanted a place to practice drawing some of the details that I want on my Mother Nature character, and I decided that my Cut-Up Sketchbook was the perfect place to do it; so I referenced one of the many inspirational photographs that I've collected on my Mother Nature board on Pinterest and put this little mushroom on the page.
