A little break from the Christmas cards, as the last two still have to be flung at their intended victims.
The weather has been eerily warm here in Ontario the past week, so it had me thinking of pretty soft pastels and florals.

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.

A little more subdued in colour, from my normal stuff. I usually live for bright, blinding colours, but it wouldn’t have suited this little guy.
Also I cannot rave about how much I love the Kuretake Clean Color Brush Markers. They are amazing! The blend so nicely, and create such a beautiful watercolour effect, while being easy to use.

Not the greatest photo. It is the first time in a long while that I’ve completed something so that is a plus. This seasonal depression shit has been kicking my teeth in lately. I cannot wait for winter to finally be over.
On a lighter note, this was inspired by one of my favourite memories of Eevee, when she was a kitten. I came down one morning to her booking it down the hallway with this gigantic croissant in her tiny little mouth. Turns out she stole it clean off my dad’s plate. Hahah, she’s a little breakfast thief and I wouldn’t have her any other way.

Happy Valentine’s day! The safety pin idea seemed cute at the time. However I don’t think it makes any sense now.

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.

G’s birthday is today, she is officially an adult. However, G hates cake, the texture of cake is what bugs her. Of course when I learned this about her I was absolutely mortified. I mean, who in the seven hells doesn’t like cake?! I can’t be friends with people who don’t like cake, what would we do on crazy midnight runs? Despite this, I am still very good friends with G. She’s pretty fantastic, so I created some birthday waffles for her.
