It’s been over a month since I last posted. I want to say I’ll try to post more frequently, but if I’m being honest I will more likely disappear into the void again.
Avocados make me think of summer, even though I eat them year round, they feel distinctly summer-y, and I’m just praying winter is over and done.

…with drawing big hair. I feel like most of the doodles I do to de-stress are cute ladies with big hairdos. Not that this is a complaint, I love drawing hair.
Prismacolour col-Erase Pencils in Black and Pink
I like winter, for it’s visuals, it creates beautiful contrasts with the white snow against pale grey skies (especially when there’s a brilliantly coloured red cardinal or bluejay). But I seriously miss the warmth of spring/summer.
Pink and Purple Col-Erase Pencils
I’m still playing around with this kind of drawing, the slapping down of colour to create the form then going in after to add details. I’m really enjoying it so far, as I feel I can be messier in my initial approach, and it still comes out nice.
I’m especially fond of how her nose came out. I almost always seem to get the same looking nose, but this time it looks distinctive!

Happy New Year, I hope you all have a great 2018.
I didn’t “sketch” this out like I normally do with all my drawings, I just grabbed two markers, a pale grey and a black marker, and went to town. I must admit I love this final effect, and I’m going to try to use it more often.
I did force myself to step away a bit, because I wanted to (and still do) go in with a fine tipped pen to add in more details but I’m afraid I’ll mess it up. So for now, she lives as a blurry splotchy hot mess in my sketchbook.

Watched How to Marry a Millionaire again today, with my mum. I always loved the glasses Pola (Marilyn Monroe) wore in the movie. Oddly enough the bath robe? she wears is also one of my favourites.

Made it, we’re done another inktober. This year was tough man, I’m kind of re-considering partaking this year, but damn I’m pleased I did it and only missed 1 day.
Have a happy halloween and a blessed Samhain!
