Friday5: Week 2.
Obviously, Monday & Tuesday were I’m-at-home-being-a-crazy-cat-lady sort of days. Yea, that’s how I roll. Meet Gibson. Doesn’t she look pleased on Tuesday? Menace is a bit more camera shy.

Doodles

Slightly older doodles do to my computer being in the shop & being unable to scan this week’s. Which means: bonus doodles once my computer returns from mac repair.

I really enjoy drawing when we have guests at our apartment. Oftentimes, video games are involved which makes for some very distracted & therefore totally willing models. Above we have Dennis (glasses) and Graham as well as some random girl from the train. Also: what my living room would look like if I had my way (though honestly, it’s not that far off from this aside from the bench/shelf thing in the window).

Tonal Tuesday: Sanctuary Sanctuary

Tonal Tuesday: Sanctuary Sanctuary

Oh green, I think you’re my favorite even though I try not to play favorites! Think soft & cozy, warm domestic bliss. Think your own secret world. I think that these colors resonant with comfort for me is due to my childhood love of wandering in the woods by my parents house. I wasn’t really supposed to but I would pull on some boots and go off tromping through the woods. I would build little nests and move rocks, swing on branches, you know those things that children do. It was always so quiet and the light soft. I’m glad I’ve brought this palette to our living room. Cozy, calm & clean.
