Hi all!  I know it's been a while. It's the busy season at work, so I've been exhausted and pretty much useless when I get home.  So that means not a lot of arting going on.  Plus, my inspiration has been on vacation or something.  But I have been trying to make more time for drawing, at least.  Much more portable than mixed media.  I used to be really pretty good, but I'm rusty now, so I'm trying to rebuild my skills.  Want to see?

Thumbnail sketches. Heehee. 
Trying to see how pencil works on gesso. 

Preliminary sketch for some character fan art. 

Random sketch from yesterday's lunch break. 

Camellia sinensis -- the tea plant. 

Hopefully you'll soon see more of some of these, but significantly altered.  It's going to be hard to mess with something I've put a lot of time into, but there are experiments I want to do!

I love your sketches! The "thumbnails" are soooo clever :)!

Fabulous drawings - I haven't sketched for years and I do think it's something that needs to be kept up. Your faces are great - and the thumbnails are fun too! Thanks for stopping by earlier - nice to see you 'arting' again!

Great series of sketches. There is a lot of "life" in each one!
