I am obsessed with water.
Maybe it’s because we’re in the middle of a drought that has lasted most of my life…
or maybe just because I like water.
Today’s doodle is an illustration for a water themed furniture exhibit:
I think it has a nice message about juicy strength.
I am so stuck in summer.
I can’t believe it wants to end!
I made this doodle as an homage to summer and to Jimmy who is obsessed with all things flamingo:
I imagine that if we were birds Jimmy would be a flamingo. All tall and eating shrimp.
If I were a bird, I’d be a hummingbird, just small and never staying in one place.
What can I say… I’m a simple girl who likes when fruit is kind.
So I have been really into the game on making mermaids lately…
And until today I couldn’t think of one thing I could do better than a mermaid could.
But then I spilled a big cup of iced tea on a drawing I was working on and very much realized something very important.
It would be very hard to draw underwater!!!
And If I couldn’t draw… I would be a very very sad illustrator.
Does anybody out there watch Game of Thrones?
I know that is a silly question because… it so popular it has a monopoly theme version!
My friend Connie who is a big fan asked me to make her a doodle of Jon Snow from the show so she could make it into a shirt.
And here I will admit, that I don’t watch the show… but when I saw this guy when figuring out what to draw… I was like, I could see why people really like this show…
Kit Harington is really dreamy.
And if it’s all him and Peter Dinklage… I could see everyone liking it.
Maybe I should give it a good binge watching.
Today I had just one goal.
To eat fries.
And today at dinner… I lived that dream!
fries, fries, fries, fries!
And that was it… successful day.
I have been having a lot of time at very silent work to make some illustrations.
And lately every week I’m trying to work on things I never have had the patience to actually do.
Today’s test was to make something I could put in illustrator to work on my graphic skills… but what it really feels like is my yearning to do something other than sit at a desk from 9am to 6pm without getting yelled at.
I desperately want to do something fun… so next week I think I’m going to take a day to play hooky. And I bet I won’t get yelled at not even once!
I’m gonna go full Ferris Bueller, the parade, the vest… the everything.
have a nice Wednesday internet,
