Watching Go Diego Go

Just a little something from this morning:) My daughter stays home from pre-school on Mondays, and she loves Dora and Diego…an opportunity to get her to sit still. and I love this pose…especially the feet:)
I decided to overcome my fear of drawing in ink, and grabbed a ballpoint for this one. ( A blotchy ballpoint at that!)  Consequently, neither image looks anything like her. She was quite unhappy with her face in the first one (she loves to pose, but she’s quite the critic) so i tried another…it doesn’t look much like her either…she wrinkled her nose at it, and didn’t say a word. Attitude! LOL!!  It does look a lot like me, though…I guess a few little glitches shows up the family resemblance.
I almost have another travel sketch ready, and I’m posting a bunch of ACEO’s that I’ve been really busy with the last few days, too. They’ll be active on ebay tonight…
Cheers, all!

What Are Little Boys Made Of?

So…my last post was the first part of the poem…What Are Little Girls Made Of, so it only made sense to do the second half next. I had fun planning this one. I couldn’t find anything to paint from life that seemed creative enough, so I gathered photographic references of critters, and a pic of my beautiful boy…I like the result. Black ballpoint with colored pencil accents. I can’t decide whether to put more color in, or leave it as is. What do you all think?
PS: this looks way better big, so make sure to click:)
