#116 Different

I think the last time I put some time and effort into making a Mandala was a couple of years ago. I found my tutorial and wanted to give it a go.


#115 Music is my life

Therefore I thought headphones would be an appropriate subject.


#114 Cats on a Ferris wheel

I did this drawing by request. You know who you are.

P.s. Drawing a Ferris wheel is hard!


#113 One Eye

image

I haven’t been feeling very creative today. Kind of in a weird funk. So when it came time to do my project for the day I really didn’t have a clue on what to make. I would have preferred to get myself lost in a book for the rest of the evening. Then I got a little nudge from my friend to attempt one of the drawing challenges she had suggested to me (remember the drawing with the less dominant hand, drawing with one continuous line?). Then another friend suggested I draw a watermelon. I didn’t have a subject of my own so why not? For the challenge I drew with one eye closed (my right). With the change in perspective I had trouble making the shape of the watermelon. I felt like the world was a bit tilted along with the drawing. I colored it with one eye also. That was easier. I did get  caught up in the one eyeness so when I was done I forgot to open it. It has been a long day.

Fun watermelon fact: it is said to originate from South Africa. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Watermelon


#112 jumping spider

image

I encountered one of these in our window today. I’ll admit I was a bit nervous because of its jumping abilities. It turned out okay though. I set it free.

P.S. This is an incredibly gross exaggeration of its size. It was really pretty tiny. Half the size of a dime. But as far as jumping spiders go, it was the biggest one of that species that I’ve seen.

My attempt at a mobius strip without a reference.


#104 & #105 The tortoise and the loon

image

I went up to a friends this weekend where she has quite the reptile collection. I fell in love with the tortoises. If I had time and the means for one I would definitely get one.

They also live on a lake where we could hear the loons calling. When we got home back into the city I missed everything, especially the loons.
