Save the Doodles Event Ongoing!

The sale on pieces of paper with drawings on them is ongoing on Facebook until February 1 midnight Central time. I set up a gallery album on Facebook with all the art that is a part of this deal. I photographed each piece with rulers so the sizes would be obvious. Anyone who pledges the postage to get some art sent, gets that art, unless more than one person wants it, then it’s a bidding war and the top bidder will get the art sent to them. Anyone who pledges on art from the specifically assigned gallery has a chance to get a piece of art that was not bid on. So I recommend hitting the like button on anything that catches your fancy too, you know, just in case…

Also, I don’t expect anyone to watch the whole video, but I wanted to show some of the fancy metallic sparkly pieces off with a video because movement brings out the vibrancy that a still photo does not. I ended up showing off the whole pile though so it’s a little long. The cats make appearances too.

If you are interested in art from any other gallery, it might not be available as an original for various reasons. Some of it might be a work in progress or something I still want to play around with. Some of it is digital painting, so there is no physical original. These ones I tend to have prints for sale through Print on Demand sights such as Fine Art America/ Pixels or Redbubble or CafePress. And there are a few pieces that I just can’t give up quite yet. They hold special meaning or I was especially fond of it for some reason. Again I have many for sale as prints and other merchandise on those Print on Demand sights. Some of the line drawings are good for colouring book pages, and some of those digital files end up on my Patreon for a small subscription.

August Sketchfest

Took part in Ellen Million’s Sketchfest again. Always fun and inspiring. The Eclipse seemed to be a popular prompt again this month and I got 2 drawings from that, one of which I played with colouring in GIMP, plus a couple more.

Prompts were Eclipse Dragon, My Black Cat, Beautiful Beast, and Total Eclipse.Sketchfest 90 aug 2017

And Ellen featured my Beast on her blog too! thank you Ellen 🙂

July Sketchfest

This month’s Sketchfest was July 21,22, and 23rd, and I was struggling with this one. The prompts I worked on were Abyssal Mermaid, Butterfly Dreams, and Solar Eclipse.

I was most happy with Butterfly dreams, but I would have to say most inspired by Solar Eclipse because I decided to redo it a couple of times over the last couple of days.

I did the extra Sun/Moon images on water colour paper, so perhaps one day I will work on coloured versions.

June Sketchfest

I missed posting my June Sketchfest contributions. I have been working on a month long project with the internet art challenges #juneicorn and #junefae, which I hope to post about when I get that organized, but it distracted me from posting my Sketchfest 88 contributions. Because I was working on Unicorns and Faeries most of my prompts reflect that, as I planned to used them for the challenges too. The prompts I chose were Dragoonicorn, Being of Light, Winged Unicorn, Litha and A snow-unicorn stomp. They are in varying stages of completeness.

Sketchfest!

This weekend was Ellen Million Graphics’ Sketchfest.

Quoting from the site:

“What’s Sketch Fest?

Sketch Fest is a 48 hour creative jam session with artists across the world, brought to you by Ellen Million Graphics and many gracious donors. Prompters leave ideas and artists sketch, in any media, whatever catches their fancy. The only rule? Sketches can only be worked on for one hour, during the Sketch Fest event.

I was introduced to Sketchfest from someone on a Facebook group and I have participated off and on since 2012.

This week I took on five prompts:

Seiðkona, The Owl and the Raven, Rainbow coloured cat, Unicorn with a difference, and space nebula.

I worked an hour more or less on each prompt, but went back and did some finishing on the space nebula and Unicorn with a difference.

It’s a fun place to get the creative juices flowing and many a piece has turned into some of my favourite work.

My Sketchfest gallery from 2012 until now is here.

And, if not for Sketchfest I would not have gotten accepted into some of Ellen Million Graphics coloring books. Including Fishtank Fantasies.
