Drawing studio-Week 1


 I've just started participating in this Drawing Studio with Nigel and some friends.  We each contribute an image based on a chosen theme and then everyone draws the same images with a defined time limit for each sketch.  Afterwards we choose one to put more time into.  This was my favorite sketch that I did for the them 'spectacled ocean'.  We had 7 minutes for each image.


I went back and spent a couple of hours on this today.  I drew it again onto some particle board and then used a mish mash of watercolors, felt markers and acrylic paint to color it.  It was fun and nice to step out of my comfort zone.

Monday's with Meow

Wow, I've been a bad blogger.  May 14th was my last post and now it's almost September.  I've been focusing on Meow's new facebook page here :   https://www.facebook.com/grumpymeow .  He needs my help cause his paws are a little too fluffy to type properly.

I've been busy as well working on a few new things for etsy shop and documenting Meow's life through watercolor illustration.  It can be tough to be the personal artist for a busy cat. 

Meow's been very active this summer.  Here's a pic from his recent fishing expedition:

Strange Couple


 I've been playing around with coloring in photoshop.  This is a first attempt using a sketch I did while sitting at the Saturday market.  It turned out much stranger than I thought (I guess they always were standing on a large egg/ bird fetus...)  but I like it.

Meow just found this photo of his early DJ days.
Purple suspenders were so hot back then.

Studio Update

It's been a busy few weeks of getting organized and crafty. Here's a little of what I've been up to.

I spent a week or so making this shelving unit.  I planned it out to fit my sewing machine, sewing box, paints, papers and canvas's and it all actually fit when it was done. Needless to say I am very proud of myself.  All this stuff used to be either under the table or on the table.  It is making it much easier to be organized.


I spend another few days working on this patchwork pillow (featured on Etsy's How To Tuesday) and this Meow Doll.  It has been very fun have a 3D Meow around the house :)
 


Meowism

Meow's been super busy lately and he lost track of his Monday's with Meow commitment!  He's vowed to be better.

He's dancing off the stress and getting an endorphin hit by following Meowism #1: Dance like no one's watching.

Go meow! Shake that thang

Thursday at the cat factory

My life has been infiltrated with little cat heads and bodies.  I've been longing for some hand work lately and Meowlettes are my solution.

I really love doing embroidery work and any hand stitching really.  Its almost meditative and a good excuse to watch some of my favorite movies.  I like having a movie on that I've seen many times so I don't actually have to watch it.

I'm going to be in the Salt Spring Island artists market this spring summer where I'll be show casing my illustrations (go Meow!) and the little cats.  It starts April 7th so coming up quick!  I'm still deciding on booth ideas.  I'm thinking of doing some variation of this cute wooden stand I found at Lil Luna's Blog

I couldn't do a full one like this because I need to be able to transport easily and fit in spots as small as 2ft sometimes.  I am thinking of doing crates with a similar look so that they act as boxes to store and also are stackable.

I'll track my progress over the next month here!

Monday's with Meow



Meow joined the local swim team.  Standing on the block at his first race he's feeling a little nervous.  Could it be the competition?
