I need a new sketchbook.
The last few pages of the one I must sadly retire (like a Derby racehorse with a broken leg) were mostly filled with ideas for the Christmas Joke Card I was asked to create featuring Santa, a manger scene, and Elvis. I tried out a number of styles; pencil sketch, silhouette, and cartoon.
Then I got distracted and tried to draw my cat, but she kept moving, so instead I present ‘Whitney Houston Crack-is-Whack’ Cat. A few loitering minutes later, my lazy lady fell asleep and I was better able to capture her cuteness sans crazy-eye..
I sadly didn’t keep a copy of the finished illustration or printed image. So this is the final thing from my sketchbook. I was inspired by the book ‘The Illustrated Life’ – by Danny Gregory.
Wine Thoughts- More than half full…
Time to put this down, and other bad habits.
Bad habits like truly horrible sketches. Owell, nondestructive pleasure are probably harmless, to all but the readers here. Please accept my apology.
