My dear friend Kathryn gave me a sketchbook a couple months back for “The Sketchbook Project – A Global Art Project.” I decided to fill my sketchbook with original Bunny Daze watercolor cartoons from years past. The cartoons are in the original format before they had been cleaned up for digital use. So you’ll see pencil marks, smudges, even some off-centered type – all the raw elements of creating a Bunny Daze cartoon. Bunny Daze has been a love and passion since June 2011. This is just another way to spread more love, peace, and joy to the universe. Thanks Kathryn for such a wonderful gift.
You can see my sketchbook later this spring at:

What is InkTober your ask…
This October was the first time that I participated in the InkTober Challenge. For those of you not familiar with the challenge, it was originally created by Illustrator Jake Parker – a very talented illustrator and teacher. The challenge was to create an ink illustration every day in the month of October based on a single word prompt. You know me, I love a good challenge, and this was right up my alley. Even though I do a lot of work digitally, I was originally trained in traditional mediums. It felt great getting back to pen and paper again. You can see my whole 31 days below. I’m planning on taking some of these characters and expanding them out to finished pieces of art and possibly new book characters.
If you want a creative challenge or want to expand your craft, you can take online classes at www.SVSlearn.com from Jake and his partners Will Terry and Lee White. I highly recommend this site – I’ve learned a lot from them. So, it is true that you can teach
Had great fun sketching at the Kimbell Museum in Fort Worth yesterday with my friends and fellow North Texas Urban Sketchers. We also had a guest architectural illustrator, sketcher, and well known instructor Stephanie Bower from Seattle.
After working outside on perspective we ventured inside to sketch from some of the exhibits. Since they only let you use pencil inside the museum I inked them once I got home. Finally getting a chance to try out my Tachikawa Comic Pen Nib No. 5
Great fun in February with friends at Urban Sketchers Outing at the Fort Worth Stock Yards! Great way to spend a Saturday!
Nothing better than hanging out with friends and sketching on a Sunday afternoon!
