What inspires you? So many things actually, but today… 1980s movies.
The music, the costumes, the Molly Ringwald. It’s pretty much what every day with me is about.
I was so happy to draw this pretty in pink inspired doodle!
Good Afternoon, or evening or whatever time it is…
Today is a glorious doodle challenge that is right in the ballpark of things I like. This ballpark is of course, draw a circus performer!
I chose the rare and lucrative hippopotamus and parasol act… which may not be real anywhere but my heart.
And I have such a work headache that I’m glad I’m not an engineer. Like why is there so many forms and calculations??? I just want to circus!
I’ve been having some rough days and I really just realized I haven’t even made any of these posts even though I’m drawing them!
Today is a day I chose. Draw and American Idol!
And not in a Ryan Seacrest way!
So I drew one of my favorite ladies…. who is so American and is everything America is about!
She is a self made celebrity and is so talented and warm and lovely. Also she has the best… wigs in the entire world!
Today’s drawing challenge is to draw a greatly unappreciated Star Wars character.
So I picked musical aardvark/elephant Max Rebo… do you remember him from like playing music for Jabba the Hut? And also being bright blue in a weird neverending keyboard? Yeah me too… and I drew it to the best of my ability.
Watch out mostly defunct Lucas Arts
I have been such a mess as of late that I haven’t had the chance to post my drawing postie from yesterday.
So… the prompt was to draw a fairy tale character.
And i was sitting with a blanket on watching dvr’d Agnet Carter episodes from this week and I was like hmm what should I draw.
And then Elliott jumped on me, and I was like… I got this!
And so I drew possibly the worst fairy of all time:
Imagine if cats granted magical wishes…? I think the whole world would be cat crunches and string
Today’s drawing challenge was to draw an infamous villain.
But I was having a really hard time thinking of a villain. The first villain I ever think of is the Shadow Man on the stranger danger sign. And according to me if you’re weird and creepy that is exactly how you should look.
But I didn’t want to draw something so creepy.
And them I remembered good old fashion comic books and so I went with a favorite villain… Catwoman. And not just any Catwoman, the super glamorous and incredibly gorgeous Julie Newmar.
And what is duplicity is she up to??? Turning little kitties to the dark side. And I know Elliott would become evil… if she fed him crunchy food.
So I should feed him before he tries to take over Gotham.
Although today is the day of love…
Our drawing challenge has nothing to with Valentines.
Today we are supposed to draw a cartoon from our childhood.
My favorite was Rocko’s Modern life
It was odd, avante garde, and had a soundtrack from the B-52s- who I can describe in another post had a great influence of my aesthetic.
So it was about this little Wallaby who was learning how hard it was to be an adult. Which is an odd concept for a kids cartoon. But I really loved it, and it showed me a lot of my future was going to be hanging with weird and delightful friends, and not being as rich as the monopoly man.
Too poor to buy groceries.
Too tired of dumb bosses.
Too tongue tied around the person you have a crushy crush on?
Rocko lived it.
Thanks Rocko! You really got me through the real struggles. Just nervously laugh and carry on!
Today’s drawing challenge is to draw a Disney character who is usually forgotten.
I chose Bianca from the Rescuers because… she had a major influence on me as a child.
I really like her fuzzy hat and wining accent.
Also I have 2 Christmas Ornaments of her because she’s the world’s most glamourous mouse.
